Two connectable modules, each with an integrated electric heating textile, strap and interface which also serves as a power source allow for customizeable body-placement depending on the location of the pain.

Application ranges:
Relaxation and recreation of muscles, sinews and connective tissues
Muscle distortion
Sinusitis and inflammation of the middle ear
