Heating Instructions for Gel Insert
The most convenient method of heating the insert is in a microwave oven. Suggested heating time (using a 600-700W microwave) is 20-30 seconds. Wait one minute (60 seconds) before use. The insert should feel warm to the touch, not hot. Hold insert firmly against the skin for 30 seconds before reheating. If the insert is not warm enough, heat in 10 second increments. Special care must be given for those with compromised sensitivity.
Caution: Due to the nature of the gel, it may only feel warm to the touch, but if the insert has been overheated, too much heat may be transferred to the body and can cause burns.
Cooling Instructions for Gel Insert
Store the insert in the freezer for a minimum of two hours. It may be left in the freezer indefinitely until ready to use. It will remain flexible even at -20°F. Remove insert prior to defrosting the freezer.
NOTE: Always store the insert in a plastic bag while in freezer.
