OT: great heating pad for back and shoulder
Posted by: samintx

I just discovered the Sunbeam heating pad at Walgreens that FITS the back and lower spine, velcro, auto shutoff! and you can even wear it comfortably sitting in a chair posting to Macresource!

Has an extra velcro strap if you are large. I have been struggling with wrapping a heating pad around my shoulder in bed or getting heat AROUND to both sides of my back. This is wonderful.

PS: I also sometimes forget to turn off the heating pad in my hast to get to the pool at 5:30 a.m.!

LOL ! Playing through the pain for the team !


You have a model number on that thing Suzanne ?
My mom needs one that she can keep on her neck shoulder area.

BTW - we got her one of those Homedic massage insets for her chair
It was the hit on Christmas. I personally tested it for an hour :-)

Only bad thing was it didn't get the neck area.

Sunbeam Model 902-500

I paid 32 bucks, the web says they are $39.99 now.

I've been happier with the microwavable fabric heating pads that contain corn or cherry stones or some such item. They stay warm for about as long as I need heat therapy on any one area and you don't need to deal with a cord (and you never forget to shut them off).

I only have heating pads w/o auto shut off. I think right now, I have about 20 of them around the house.

When I need to use one, I just borrow it from my snakes' cages for an hour or two.

That being said, one with a velcro strap sounds very handy. I'd be interested if they had a non-auto shutoff variety.

I checked at CVS and they didn't have it. I'm sure others have it but easy at a Walgreens

Davester: at 2:00 am the cherry stones don't work. I need something to get me back to sleep!

Stephanie: you can use the auto shut off or not...up to 8 hrs. Just use auto shut off if you want to...flexible. I'm sitting here now with wonderful heat on my back. Can't decide if I want it on my back or shoulder!

samintx, you mean the auto shutoff is optional - or will it just last for up to 8 hrs before shutting off? In the winter, I have to provide constant heat for my little ones (the reason why I don't like auto shutoff)

Stephanie: The shut off is optional but you can set it for up to 4 hrs to auto shut off...or shut off in 1, 1.5, 2,3,4 hours. The Auto shut off is a separate switch not connected (or manned) by the head.

Heat switch
Auto shut switch (on or off) 30 minutes to STAY ON ALWAYS don't turn off.

I made a mistake...4 hrs max on auto shut off. Min 30 min or Stay on till I burn up!
