HEATING PAD USAGE INSTRUCTIONS
• Before each use, ensure all connections are properly secured.
• Before each use, plug the pad into the wall outlet; the use of a surge protector is
recommended.
• Before each use, ensure all functions of the digital controller are working correctly.
How to prepare the Pad for use:
It is suggested that you get in a comfortable position, either sitting or lying down.
It is suggested that you place a small towel (folded in half) as a safeguard layer between you and
the stones. There is no loss of effectiveness if the heat has to travel through the protective layer or
even through your clothing.
The stones do not need to touch your skin to be effective. For safety reasons, the stones should not
touch your skin during use.
How hot to set the Pad:
Depending on the thickness of the safeguard layers, you will need to adjust the temperature to your
tolerance level. The temperature should never be set hotter than you can comfortably tolerate it.
Where to place the Pad:
The pad should be positioned directly over the affected area. You may either lie on the pad, wrap the
pad around the affected body part or lay the pad on your body or body part. Remember to use the
safeguard layer as padding and protection for both you and the pad to keep it clean.
Which side of the Pad should face your body?:
During use, place the pad with the jade stones facing your body.
How to use the Pad for your condition:
There is no specific protocol for any individual using
a heating pad for a specific condition. That said,
everyone responds differently to different modalities
and it is suggested that you limit the use of the pad to
20 minutes per session of continuous use for the first
several weeks to see how you tolerate the heat.
Once you have become comfortable with the use of
the pad, you can begin to use it for longer durations
of continuous use. Please note that the longer the
duration, the lower the heat needs to be. Learning
to adjust the heat to your tolerance will be key to
achieving optimal results.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
QUESTION: When should the Heating Pad
NOT be used? The list below contains known
conditions when the heating pad should not be
used or only be used under the supervision of a
physician. This list is not exhaustive. If you suffer
from any serious condition that might be affected
by the use of the product, please consult with your
physician before using the heating pad.
• Do not use directly over open wounds.
• Do not use directly over acute injuries.
• Do not use directly over face or genitals.
• Do not use if you are insensitive to heat,
including paraplegic and quadriplegic or
have poor blood circulation that affects your
ability to feel heat or cold sensations.
• Do not use if you are immobile or
incapacitated or not able to remove the
heating pad from your body.
• Do not use this product with infants or
children under the age of 6. Children under
the age of 14 should always use the pad
under adult supervision.
• In the case of pregnancy, diabetes,
hemophilia, malignancy or other serious
conditions, consult with your physician
before applying the heating pad.
• If you carry implants, see the advice below.
QUESTION: Can the Heating Pad be used if
you are a carrier of implants? Implants may
absorb infrared energy at different rates than
the various bodily tissues, and there is a chance
that metal implants can absorb far more heat
than the surrounding tissues and cause burns;
or the heat energy might be able to weaken,
warp, distort, affect, damage and even destroy
the implant. Since this has not been studied for
the many different materials that are used for
implants, we advise against using the heating pad
unless approved and supervised by a competent
physician.
Warning: even if you do get medical clearance
from your physician to use the heating pad, these
two guidelines must always be followed.
• Do not use directly over medical implants
or metal implants;
10
• Do not use directly over implanted silicon or
silicon prostheses.
QUESTION: Can I sleep on this heating pad? We
do not recommend using the pad while sleeping.
However, many do end up falling asleep during
use. If there is a chance you may fall asleep, set
the temperature to a low setting and use the
adjustable timer to turn off the pad after 1 to 2
hours of use.
QUESTION: Can the Dr. Clark Far Infrared
Heating Pad treat medical conditions? The Dr.
Clark Far Infrared Heating Pad is an FDA class II
medical device. It is indicated for the temporary
relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness;
the temporary relief of joint pain associated with
arthritis; the temporary relief of muscle spasms,
minor sprains and strains, and minor muscular
back pain; the relaxation of muscles; and the
temporary increase of local circulation where
applied.
If you have a medical condition of any kind and
you think you can benefit from the Dr. Clark Far
Infrared Heating Pad, please consult with your
physician. If you are given medical clearance to
use the Dr. Clark Far Infrared Heating Pad, you will
be doing so under your physician’s suggestion
and supervision.
QUESTION: Is the Heating Pad flexible? Can
it be wrapped around a body part? Yes. The
format of the pad is totally flexible and made to
mold to an area of discomfort for ultimate heating
benefit and pain relief. All pads except the Full
Body Sleeper come with a Body Strap that you
can use to attach the pad to your body.
QUESTION: Which side of the pad goes toward
the skin? The Jade stones go toward the body.

Dr. Clark Far Infrared Heating Pad
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
the healing process of an injury. The more you use
it the more relaxed and revitalized you will feel.
Please follow the usage instructions for the first
several weeks of use.
QUESTION: Is there a specific place or way
to use the Heating Pad? Not really, but it is
suggested that you set the pad up in a comfortable
place (like your couch or bed) where you can relax
and benefit the most from using the product. The
pad can be applied to any area of the body, the
closer to the affected area the better.
QUESTION: What is the best temperature for
me and my condition? Everyone is different and
responds differently to heat therapy. Use common
sense while in the first few weeks of use with this
product. Start slow in terms of temperature and
time of use.
A suggestion would be to start with one third of the
available heat range for 20 minutes and observe
the way your body responds to the therapy, and
then adjust accordingly. Remember this form of
therapy causes your body to detoxify, meaning
that depending on the level of toxicity you might
feel dizzy or nauseous. A remedy for this feeling is
to drink water to help expel the toxins.
QUESTION: What is EMF? EMF stands for
Electromagnetic Field. It is an energy field
that is emitted from any wire that has current
running through it. While this heating pad, when
in operation, has current running through its
wires, every effort has been made in the design,
development and construction to reduce and
minimize any EMF exposure.
QUESTION: Can I use the Heating Pad in the
car? Yes, the Small, Iso-Wrap and Ultra, Back and
Neck heating pads can all be used in the car as
long as you are using this specific inverter with
these specifications: Pure Sine Wave Car Inverter
DC12 to AC110V with power 300 watts. The use of
a “Modified Sine Wave Car Inverter,” will destroy
the controller and void the warranty. Please make
sure you are using a Pure Sine Wave Car Inverter.
In order to ensure you get the correct car inverter,
we suggest you call 1-800-216-4908 and ask for
the “Pure Sine Wave Car Inverter for the Dr. Clark
Heating Pads.”
QUESTION: Can I use this Heating Pad anywhere
in the world? Yes, the controller can utilize power
between 90 to 250 volts. You will need to use a
receptacle adapter when using this pad outside
the United States or Canada.
QUESTION: Can you purchase additional 4” x
27” Body Straps? Yes, simply call the HBI support
desk at 1-800-216-4908 and place your order
through them.
QUESTION: Can I put my Jade stone pad in the
freezer? Yes, the Small pad and the Iso-Wrap
Pad can be put into the freezer and used as a
cold pack. Please understand this is separate and
independent of how it would be used as a hot
pack. The application of cold therapy should be
used for the first 48 to 72 hours after an acute
flare-up. It is suggested that you use the cold
application for a minimum of 20 minutes, several
times per day during this period. You may or may
not need the protective layer when using the pads
as cold packs.
QUESTION: Can my Cat or Dog use this pad?
We suggest that you contact and consult your
Veterinarian as only they know your pet’s complete
medical history and only they will know if the
heating pad is appropriate for your pet
to use. Ask your Veterinarian what
temperature and duration is
appropriate.
