Warmer

 

a device for locally affecting some part of the organism with dry heat.

The use of warmers is based on the pain-relieving and resolvent effect of heat. Rubber bottles (filled with hot water) with screw-on caps are used for therapeutic purposes, as are electric pads and chemical warmers (a packet with a chemical mixture that heats to a temperature of 80°-90° C when water is added).
