Thermalution® Health Care series

Petatech is a brand that aims to provide warmth to those who needs it most. In order to fulfill this requirement, we have created our Health Care Series that will soothe the pain in any part of your body.

We have combined the common knowledge of applying heat to sore and or injured body parts with our unique blend of health care belts and guards that will relief your pain and aid your injury. Made of genuine neoprene, our products emit safe Far Infrared Ray that will penetrate your skin and gently elevate your body heat, improve blood circulation, promote tissue and cell regeneration and bring you comfort that cannot be matched.

It has Far Infrared function.
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a common condition for people working in an environment that places stress on certain parts of the body. Anyone that works with computers is in the high RSI risk group, due to the demand placed on the wrist by typing.

Common RSI Symptoms
. Pain in the stressed body parts.
. Tingling, numbness or loss of sensation in the hand or arm.
. Muscle spasms or muscle weakness.
. Impairment in one’s ability to carry out normal domestic work.
. Any of these symptoms inhibiting you from quality sleep at night.

Treatments for RSI:
There is no real treatment method to cure RSI, but only methods to prevent it from getting worse. Such methodology includes ergonomics (modification of posture and usage of stressed body parts), and adaptive technology such as special keyboards or voice recognition software. Only FIR can improve the situation for a patient suffering from RSI. Far Infrared Ray can help the circulation of blood and reduce the risk of attaining RSI while assisting in the recovery of RSI symptoms.

ThermalTek® Heating Wire patented and invented by Petatech® Int'l Co., Ltd. is the first non-metallic power heating wire in the world that is used for consumer products with the following features:

-Non-metallic characteristics
-Light, durable, secure, stable, high strength, bendable, twistable and washable
-Easy power supply by DC and AC voltage
-High heat transfer efficiency with low power consumption
-Low electromagnetic interference
-Far infrared ray

Understanding the cause of your knee pain is the key to knowing which method to use to avoid further injury. For chronic knee pain, prevention is still the best cure. That's why doctors recommend applying heat on your injured knee before you engage in any activity that strains your muscles. Heat loosens stiff muscles and relaxes your injured knee.

We recommend the Thermalution FIR heat Knee Wrap as your best companion before a sporting event or any rigorous activity. The Thermalution FIR heat Knee Wrap is slim, lightweight, and delivers the soothing heat that warms up your muscles prior to exercise. The slender design makes our knee wrap wearable anywhere: at the gym, on the golf course, in the workplace, and more.

What is F.I.R. Far Infrared Ray
Far iInfrared ray (FIR) is a spectrum of natural sunlight with a wavelength of 4 – 1000 microns. It is invisible to the human eyes.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) pointed out that FIR with wavelength between 6 – 14 microns is capable of penetrating deep into the human body where they gingerly elevate the body temperature and generate resonance. It can accelerate metabolism, improve circulation and provide warmth.

Testing of Petatech® International Co., Ltd. products, performed by Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, demonstrates that all of Petatech’s products generate the desired FIR with wavelength of between 6-14 microns.


The Principle Source of This
Far-Infrared Heat is Our Own Sun

Remember when you were a kid hanging out at the local swimming hole? You'd splash around until you felt half frozen and your lips turned blue. Then you'd run up onto the beach and sprawl out on your towel to dry in the sun. As you lay there all goose-pimply and shivering, it seemed like the sun was shining right through you... warming you clear down to your bones... it felt so good! And in just a couple of minutes you were so snuggly warm you wanted to fall asleep... at which point you jumped up and ran back into the water to freeze your tush off again!

Well, the heat that was warming you so deep down was the sun's Infrared Rays. These waves of energy, totally invisible to the naked eye, are capable of penetrating deep into the human body (literally right down to your bones) where they gently elevate the body's surface temperature and activate major bodily functions.

Now don't worry, Far Infrared Radiation (FIR) has nothing to do with either ultraviolet radiation (which gives you a sunburn and damages your skin), or atomic radiation (the kind from a nuclear bomb). Far-infrared waves are a safe form of light energy that heat objects by direct light conversion - a process that directly warms the object, not the surrounding air. Actually FIR heat is so safe that neonatal care units now use infrared heating systems to keep infants warm.

For the last 40 years western researchers and clinicians have done extensive studies on the healing power of FIR energy and have made some startling discoveries.

For example, a study of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome found considerable relief of symptoms with daily Infrared treatment. Although the patients had been taking prednisone, a powerful medication used to temporarily dampen inflammation, this potent drug had shown no beneficial effects prior to administration of the heat therapy. After 15 to 25 sessions in a FIR sauna, the patients showed significant improvement in fatigue, pain, sleep disruption and low-grade fever. The patients were able to discontinue prednisone medication and showed no relapse of symptoms after a year, during which time they continued the infrared therapy once or twice weekly.

Top 10 benefits for using  Far Infrared Ray heat therapy ......

1.    Unlike traditional forms of heat therapy that waste heat by only reaching the surface of the skin, Far Infrared Ray Heat penetrates up to 2 inches into your muscles and bones.

2.    FIR heat therapy is the most beneficial natural remedy for chronic pain. It has been studied and proven more effective than ingested medicine such as Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen on lower back pain treatment.

3.    By heating the tissues, the FIR heat therapy wrap works at a cellular level and dilates the blood vessels which increase the flow of oxygenated blood. It also flushes away lactic acids that cause harmful toxin build-ups in the blood.

4.    The FIR heat therapy wrap allows its users to choose heat as preferred, unlike conventional heat therapy such as microwave gels and chemical heat packs that only emit a constant temperature. This is a vital property since the most efficient temperature for heat therapy to take effect is 105 °F.

5.    The FIR heat therapy wrap can be used as treatment and rehabilitation for a wide array of discomforts, such as muscle spasms, arthritis, joint stiffness, whiplash, and headaches. It is also effective for sports or work-related injuries such as pinched nerves, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and ruptured discs.

6.    Far Infrared Rays activate and ionize water molecules that compose 90% of our body mass. These resonate to a number of health benefits.

7.     Because it is deep penetrating, FIR improves the heat efficiency applied on tissues below the skin’s surface, lessening the risk of skin burns and irritations.

8.    FIR heat is an affective agent in reducing cellulite and may be used as means of losing weight. Because it speeds up blood circulation, it has the ability to simulate a full-body work out without the physical demands of exercising.

9.    FIR heat locally heats the muscles and tissues and may be used for pre-activity warm up, effective for athletes and performers who need the extra physical boost.

10.     Far Infrared Ray heats the muscle fibers, reducing soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms. This has been shown to be beneficial for people who train and exercise vigorously and suffer from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
