How to use this product
Always use this heat pad exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. First, connect the control to the heat pad by inserting the plug-in coupling. Then plug the mains into the socket. To switch the heat pad on, set the sliding switch for ON/OFF and temperature settings to setting 1, 2 or 3. When it is switched on, the indicator lamp (4) lights up.
If the heat pad is being used over several hours, we recommend that you set the lowest temperature setting on the control to avoid the body overheating and thereby any potential burns to the skin or heat stroke. It switches off automatically after 90 minutes. Once the heat pad has switched off, it is no longer heated and the indicator lamp flashes. To switch on the heat pad again, first set the sliding switch for ON/OFF and temperature settings to the OFF ( 0 ) position for 5 seconds. After about 5 seconds it is possible to switch it on again.
To switch off the heat pad, slide the sliding switch for ON/OFF and temperature settings to the OFF ( 0 ) position. If the heat pad is not being used for several days, slide the sliding switch for ON/OFF and temperature settings to the OFF ( 0 ) position and remove the mains plug from the socket. Then disconnect the control from the heat pad by unplugging the plug-in coupling.
Is Beurer HK Comfort - Heat Pad suitable for children?
This heat pad must not be used by young children between the ages of 0-3 as they are unable to respond to overheating. It can be used by children older than 3 and younger than 8 years of age provided they are supervised. For this, the control must always be set to the minimum temperature.
This heat pad may be used by children over the age of 8 and by people with reduced physical, sensory or mental skills or a lack of experience or knowledge, provided that they are supervised or have been instructed on how to use the heat pad safely, and are fully aware of the consequent risks of use.
Children must not play with the heat pad. Cleaning and user maintenance must not be performed by children unless supervised.
When should this product not be used?
Beurer HK 44 Heat Pad - Hot Water Bottle Design may be unsuitable for certain people. This heat pad must not be used If you’re sensitive to heat or by other vulnerable persons who may not be able to react to overheating (e.g. diabetics, people with skin alterations due to illness or scarred tissue in the application area, after taking pain relief medication or alcohol).
Do not insert pins into the heat pad. Do not use folded or rucked. Do not use it if it is wet. This heat pad may only be used in conjunction with the control specified on the label. It must only be connected to the mains voltage that is specified on the label. The electrical and magnetic fields emitted by this heat pad may interfere with the function of a pacemaker. However, they are still well within the limits: electrical field strength: max. 5000 V/m, magnetic field strength: max. 80 A/m, magnetic flux density: max. 0.1 millitesla. Please consult your doctor and the manufacturer of your pacemaker before using this heat pad.
Do not pull, twist or make sharp bends in the cables. If the cable and control are not positioned properly, there may be a risk of becoming entangled in, being strangled by, tripping over, or stepping on the cable and control of this heat pad. The user must ensure that excess lengths of cable, and cables in general, are safely routed.
Please check this heat pad frequently for signs of wear and tear or damage. If any such signs are evident, if the heat pad has been used incorrectly or if it no longer heats up, it must be checked by the manufacturer before being switched on again.
Under no circumstances should you open or repair the heat pad (including the accessories) yourself because faultless functionality can no longer be guaranteed thereafter. Failure to observe this will invalidate the guarantee.
If the mains connection cable of this heat pad is damaged, it must be disposed of. If it cannot be removed, the heat pad must be disposed of. Do not expose control and cables to direct sunlight. When this heat pad is switched on, do not place any sharp objects on it. Do not place any heat sources, such as hot water bottles, heat pads or similar, on it.
The electronic components in the control warm up when the heat pad is in use. For this reason, the control must never be covered or placed on the heat pad when it is in use.
If you do not plan to use the heat pad for a long period of time, we recommend that you store it in the original packaging. For this purpose, disconnect the control from the heat pad by unplugging the plug-in coupling. Allow the heat pad to cool down before folding. Otherwise the heat pad may be damaged. Do not crease the heat pad by placing items on top of it during storage.
