You have plenty of customizability with this heating pad, which offers temperature control to let you choose the perfect temperature. This pad also allows you to choose between dry and moist heat, depending on your own preferences. It also offers a timer that lets you set your heating pad to automatically turn off after a certain timeframe. We liked that it comes with a velcro strap that makes it easy to wrap the pad around the affected area. Plus, we felt it had a nice, substantial weight.
