Hotties Quilted Blue Microwaveable Heat Pad
If you have Raynaud's disease, you might use a hot water bottle to help you prevent attacks in the winter months. However, because of their fiddly stoppers and splashy hot water, they carry an inherent risk of injury, so you might not be able to fully relax when you're using one. Designed to be just as effective but far safer than a standard water bottle, the Hotties Quilted Blue Microwaveable Heat Pad is a fantastic alternative, and can help you combat Raynaud's with minimal hassle and optimal comfort.

It's therefore perfect for warming your torso or your extremities to prevent Raynaud's from developing, while its slim, lightweight design means it can easily be used at home or when you travel.
Can the Hotties Heat Pad Help With Pain?
Not only can this heat pad reduce Raynaud's symptoms by keeping you warm and promoting circulation, it can also soothe aches and pains.

How Does the Hotties Heat Pad Work?
Every Hotties warmer contains a combination of plant based materials and water which are safely sealed inside its heat pack. As the liquid does not slosh around as much as it might in a hot water bottle, heat does not escape from the pack as easily, meaning it stays warmer for longer.

A spare or replacement Hotties heat pack is available for purchase. You can add the Hotties Replacement Thermal Inserts to your order by selecting them with the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Is the Hotties Quilted Heat Pad Safe to Use?

Who Can Safely Use the Blue Heat Pack?
The Hotties Heat Pad can be safely used by most people as long as it is kept in its cover. However, if you have diabetes or a general lack of physical sensation, speak to your doctor before use.
