Torf Single-foment system for hot/cold treatment

Torf Single-Foment System offers a simple way to administer BALNEO-Peat treatment without the requirement of facilities and equipment typically associated with it. The system consists of a Single-foment BALNEO-Peat pad and a matching heat pack (heat carrier). The key component is a unique single use foment pad - layer of an organic therapeutic BALNEO-Peat sealed between permeable membrane and leak-proof plastic sheet. The membrane allows for contact between skin and peat, yet prevents peat to stick to skin. The system is designed to deliver constantly increasing heat to the treated area for a the length of physiotherapy treatment (~20 min.). After application the pad is easily removed and skin can be cleaned with just a towel. Thanks to its simplicity, the labor requirement (as well as training) is minimal.

"My partner and I massage NFL professional athletes and using the Single-foment moor mud pad and a matching heat pack has proved invaluable during their football season. We were able to relieve aches and pains due to the high level of stress put on their bodies at game time, we were able to work the tissue and muscles deeper due to the heat and detoxification of the packs and they experienced less injuries from their tissue becoming healthier."

Why use peat?
Natural peat has low heat conductivity and much higher heat retention than other materials used in therapy (5.5 times that of water). This translates into uniform heat delivery over the course of treament. This is important for effective heat therapy as it allows for deeper heat penetration without shocking body thanks to the smoother temperature ramp up.
Torf Single-foment system allows for a slower raise of contact temperature, making therapy less of a shock to skin and more comfortable. High heat capacity of peat filled heat pack keeps the heat delivery even, allowing for deeper penetration into body tissues for a more effective therapy. Click here to see an animation.
