We recommend anyone who has undergone bypass surgery to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause normal blood vessels to expand. Some people who have gone through bypass surgery, experience discomfort since their blood vessels can’t expand.
We recommend anyone with Diabetes to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Diabetics’ skin is weak, which can cause low heat burn from the use of the Biomat. Once the skin is damaged, it may be difficult to recover.
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) –
We recommend people with chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) to use the Biomat with caution before and after use, and on low heat only (95F-113F). Sudden changes in body temperature and/or weather temperature may cause an increase in blood pressure.
Newborn Babies –
We recommend parents with newborns to wait until their baby is at least 6 months old before using the Biomat on low heat only (95F-104F) or negative ions only, with adult supervision. Please use with caution.
We recommend that infants using the Biomat should use it on low heat only (95F-113F), with adult supervision. If temperature is too high for the child, the temperature can’t be controlled without an adult. Please use with caution.
Pregnancy / Expectant Women –
We recommend women in their pregnancy or those who are expecting to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F- 113F). Excessive temperatures have a potential for fetal damage during early months of pregnancy so it is important to consult your physician before use of the Biomat.
Radiation Therapy/Chemotherapy –
We recommend anyone that has currently received radiation treatments or chemotherapy to use the Biomat on low to medium heat (95F-131F).
Surgical Implants –
Recipients of Titanium, Metal, Ceramic, or Plastic implants can use the Biomat. Surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Anyone who experiences pain in those areas should check with their physician.
Silicon – Silicon implants may be warmed by infrared rays. Silicon is known to melt at over 200 degrees Celsius / 392 Fahrenheit, so it should not be adversely affected by infrared rays. It is advised that you consult your surgeon before use.
Pain should not be experienced when using the Biomat. However, the infrared heat will go to areas of disease or discomfort so some people may perceive this as pain and others as a sensation. If pain is persistent, discontinue use.
If there are any worsened conditions when using the Biomat, discontinue use. Some temporary symptoms may occur, which can be attributed to the detoxification and healing process.
