I've purchased more than one of these heating pads as they are great for so many people for so many reasons
my son has a bad back so the heat from this gives him massive relief while he lays in bed
my nan suffers terribly with the cold so this laid over her lap under her blanket keeps her cosy
my poor old dog loves to lay on one as he really feels the cold now
I got one for myself purely because I hate being cold so I use it like a personal life lectric blanket
with multi settings it can be warm or hot depending on what you need
the velour cover is ultra comfortable
I would recommend any one with medical pains or someone who just hates being cold gets one !
