More WC Innovation from NWCDC – Thermazone


WC Innovation from NWCDC From Medical Company

I had written earlier in the week on searching for WC innovation at the recent National Workers Compensation and Disability Conference last month in Las Vegas.

As most of the innovation was in the vendor booths, I visited everyone of them over two days time.  It was great to see cutting edge products and services.

A simple but wonderful technique for pain control without drugs was one of the vendors. Thermazone– actually let me try out their product at the booth (great marketing) seemed to have an innovative product.

I am not an expert in mechanics, medicine, or bio-science.   However, Thermazone was a great innovation.  They have a Thermazone unit that heats or cools very quickly.  It is very thin.  The unit was small enough to carry in my hand.

Once the unit was turned on, once to heat and once to cool, the relief, if needed was instantaneous.    The pad that was hooked up to the unit by hoses was very thin, pliable, and comfortable.

The temperature was controlled by water flowing through micro-welded channels.  All the user had to do was add distilled water that you can buy at Walmart for 90 cents per gallon.

Instead of me droning on about their use, below is information from their website.  WC adjusters, risk managers, rehab nurses, and industrial physicians should take notice of a great product.   I did not evaluate the cost of the product.


Finally, a device that offers easy, high-efficiency heating and cooling therapy without the use of ice!

Our compact design is packed full of features and provides consistent, therapeutic temperature levels for any part of the body.

Our technology is designed to treat the total range of traumatology including:

    In-Hospital & Clinic Treatment

  • Post-Surgical Recovery
  • Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine
  • Professional Physiotherapy
  • Sports Medicine
  • Trauma Rehabilitation
  • Private and In-Home Care
  • Pain Management

This technology satisfies a clear unmet clinical need- safe, effective and targeted localized treatment with precise temperature management and registration. Traditional means of heating and cooling therapy (ice packs and gel packs, heating pads and circulating devices) are not efficient or fully effective including issues with:

  • Pain and temperature miss-use (freeze burns and hot spots)
  • Condensation (dripping)
  • Rapid loss of temperature
  • No temperature control
  • Toxic content, risk of wound poisoning
  • Environmental impact
