A combination of 17 layers of specialized fabric and heat to produce far infrared rays and negative ions assisting in the healing with light, increasing body temperature and improving circulation.
This is the perfect take-along for trips, to keep at the office or to share with a friend or family member who would benefit from using this therapeutic device and is great to use in easy chairs, Med-Spa, dental & office chairs. It is also the perfect size for children. Many of our customers have also purchased the Mini-Mat for their beloved pet.

How does it help?
The Biomat® is an FDA approved medical device by the FDA for the temporary relief of minor muscle pain, minor joint pain and stiffness, join paint associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor sprains, minor strains, minor muscular back pain, relaxation of muscles, and temporary increase of local circulation where applied.
How does it Work?
Unlike an electric blanket which uses electric coils to create heat, the Biomat® uses a combination of fabrics and Amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays which is then transferred to the body as heat. The heat comes from friction generated within the body through the effects of far infrared rays. Far infrared rays warm the inside of your body and the part of your body making contact with the Biomat®.
What is Thermotherapy?
Thermotherapy is the therapeutic application of any substance to the body that adds heat to the body resulting in increased tissue temperature.(1) Thermotherapy also increases blood flow which facilitates tissue healing by supplying protein, nutrients, and oxygen at the site of injury. Studies have shown that a 1°C increase in tissue temperature is associated with a 10% to 15% increase in local tissue metabolism.(2) The increase in tissue metabolism assists in the healing process by removing the metabolic by-products of tissue damage and provides the environment for tissue repair.
Why Use far infrared?
The circulatory system is responsible for the delivery of oxygen-rich blood and the removal of wastes.(3) Far infrared rays have been found to have a blood circulation enhancing effect in human skin and eventually induces an increase in temperature of the body tissues.(4)
Increase of Body Temperature
Studies have indicated that during thermotherapy, or hyperthermia, the body is exposed to higher temperatures which causes a significant increase in skin microcirculation, skin temperature and core temperature. (5) Inducing an artificial fever can provide benefits to your immune system as a type of immune cell, or lymphocyte, called a CD8+ cytotoxic T-cell, helps destroy infected cells. (6)
Heat Shock Proteins
Heat shock proteins (HSPs), or stress proteins, are present in all organisms and all cells of all organisms (7). Published studies have shown that exposures to environmental stress, such as heat shock, induces the body to produce HSPs that function as molecular chaperones. Molecular chaperones are a type of protein that assists in the proper folding of proteins and quality control (8). Improper folding of proteins and damaged proteins have been reported to be the cause of a large number of diseases. (9)
