Saves Time and Improves Efficiency
"This product incorporates the ingenuity of five modalities in one. It even allows a patient to apply several different treatments at the same time, saving time and improving efficiency. The stretching component should be a huge adjunct in treating that pesky heel pain known as Plantar Fasciitis. ThermaWedge® makes sense."
Dr. Albert J. Mollica, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine

ThermaWedge® should be in every therapist’s toolbox. "

Makes Doing Proper Stretching so Easy
"I started using it the same evening that I brought it home. Then for the next three mornings before heading out for a walk I popped the heated cryopak compress into the sleeve of the wedge and stretched the plantar fascia for a few seconds and did a final stretch with the roller on both feet. When returning home I used the wedge for an after walk stretch. As well, through out the day and in the evenings I have continued to use the wedge and roller to keep my plantar fascia stretched. It is so convenient to use and makes doing proper stretching so easy. I feel it has made a big difference. While out walking I have had absolutely no pain in my heels, and in particular the foot that has been giving me the most grief since our Coast to Coast walk in the UK. It's so nice not to hobble taking the first few steps out of the car when out doing errands!"
Targets Potential Problem Areas
"I stand for long periods of time at work, and after a long day it feels really good to stretch. The ThermaWedge® makes it very easy and targets potential problem areas. I would highly recommend this product!"
Tom H., Customer Service
Provides Instant Pain Relief
"I like the ThermaWedge® because it provides instant pain relief when I use it to stretch my swollen achilles tendon. Using the on-board foot roller really improves circulation in my feet. I like to use the ThermaWedge® in the morning and when I get home from work. It makes my feet feel happy and eases aching after a long day of hiking around job-sites!"
Richard T., Manager, Truck Fleet Operations

Noticed a Difference after a Week
"I have been using ThermaWedge® for a week now and I have already noticed a difference.
Generally from work my feet are tight and sore by the end of the day. Using ThermaWedge® has helped relax the muscle in my arch and even around my toes that I no longer feel pain when I wake up in the morning."
Zoiya J., Hair Stylist

Easy Way to Stretch
"It is an easy way to stretch my calves at work."
Reduction in Pain Within 24 Hours
"I found out about ThermaWedge two weeks into having Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot resulting from over-exuberant exercise. Within 24 hours I had already noticed a reduction in the pain in my left heel. It has now been four weeks, and I was able to take a pain-free 5 km walk the other day. I will continue to use the ThermaWedge on both of my feet on a regular basis as prevention against any further problems with Plantar Fasciitis. Just having the ThermaWedge in sight reminds me of what I went through and encourages me to use the device daily. There is always an opportunity to use it, whether it is while I am peeling vegetables, watching TV, or even putting on makeup!"

Allows me to Stretch at the Office!
"My job keeps me at a desk and quite often I get cramps in my legs and feet. ThermaWedge® allows me to stretch while I'm at the office without anyone even knowing it! I bring it home with me to use while I prepare dinner or watch tv. I find that ThermaWedge® provides a better stretch than any other to the point where after I work out, I will wait to stretch my legs until I get home so that I can use my ThermaWedge. I've had pains in my feet from being active and from being constrained to a desk during the day so the roller helps alleviate any pain or cramping. I can't get enough of ThermaWedge."
I Actually Look Forward to Standing in My Kitchen
"I love ThermaWedge® as I have Plantar Fasciitis. I come home and while in the kitchen making dinner I stand on the ThermaWedge® or roll my foot with the cork roller. I have found this to help so much as it also stretches out my calves. It has got to a stage where I actually look forward to getting home and standing in my kitchen! I would definitely recommend ThermaWedge® to anyone."
Sandra F., Sales/Secretary
Nicole K., Administration
Nothing Stretches Me Out as Well as ThermaWedge
"I am very active and spend a lot of time on my feet. I don’t have plantar fasciitis, but I use the ThermaWedge® daily as a preventative measure against injury, for a total foot & calf stretch. Nothing stretches me out as well as ThermaWedge. I would recommend this product to anyone who does a lot of standing at work."
Michelle K., Receptionist
