The Biomat vs Conventional Heating pads

Some wonder what the difference is between a Richway Biomat and a conventional heating pad or electric blanket.  The most frequently asked question is "Are they a fire hazard?"  Well, the answer is yes if you are talking about electric blankets or heating pads.  Most are heated by ceramic coils that are woven into the fabric or inside the mat and when you put cloth and a heating element together, you are asking for trouble, even if that fabric is "fire retardant."  Eventually, with enough contact heat, anything will catch fire and we see this in the statistics.  Over 1,600 people are treated in emergency rooms each year from heating pad or electric blanket burns.  Eight people die, on average, each year because of those devices.


On the other hand, not one person has ever been burned or died because of a Biomat.  The Biomat uses fabrics and amethyst to generate heat, not coils, and the Biomat is never hot to the touch.  When you set a Biomat to a certain temperature, the outside of it never gets as hot as that temperature.  Instead, when you lay down on it, the Biomat heats you to that temperature.  Heating pads and electric blankets heat to the temperature selected making their higher temperatures dangerous to you and the environment around them.  If any part of a Biomat ever gets as  hot as the selected temperature, it shuts off.  If the Biomat is set to a temperature higher than 113°F, after four hours of operation it will step down the heat to 113°F.  The Biomat has all of these features in place to assure that it is safe while you enjoy it.


Another difference is that heating pads are only a contact heat.  They do help alleviate some aches and pains but only on the very surface of your body.  They also help with stomach aches if you lay on top of them but that is pretty uncomfortable.

Biomats help with those things too but the infrared heat goes up to seven inches into the body, providing pain relief to a much larger part of your body and lying on one face down on a Biomat (or draping the Mini Biomat over your stomach) will do the same thing with a lot more comfort.  The Biomat does not get hot on the surface, but instead warms you from the inside of your body.  Infrared heat is healing energy.  Contact heat is a temporary fix.


Another significant difference is protection from EMF (electromagnetic fields).  The Biomat has an entire layer in it and an IC chip in the controller that prevent any EMF from reaching you.  Heating pads and electric blankets have absolutely no protection from EMF.


Heating pads and electric blankets have absolutely no healing power.  They just generate heat. The Biomat's heat is generated by life-rejuvenating far infrared rays that have been proven to improve circulation and relieve back, arthritis and joint pain by the FDA.  The benefits from a heating pad or electric blanket are temporary.  The benefits from a Biomat are short and long term.  And we haven't come across a heating pad or electric blanket that produces negative ions or that amplifies infrared light by way of amethyst. 


Heating pads usually just have two to four temperature "range" settings like "low," "medium" and "high".  The Biomat allows you to select an actual temperature and has many more temperature settings than those other products.


Sure, heating pads and electric blankets are cheaper.  But what are your goals?  Are they just to feel your skin warm up?  Mild, temporary, dangerous pain relief?  


Because the Biomat is so much more than that.  Get your BIomat today!
