Health Care Issue
A wireless heating and cooling pad with a bluetooth feature and app available in the Google Play and Apple Store. Physicians can prescribe these devices to patients as a means of physical therapy and injury prevention. The wireless feature of the device allows it to be portable, so the time and place of the patient using it is much more flexible. Athletes can prevent and/or treat sports injuries on the field without having to worry about a port to plug into. Customers with joint issues such as arthritis can take the device to the office or work. The app connected to the device would also allow patients to be in contact with their physician if they need to discuss changes of the settings and prescribed course of treatment, and to provide a confidential connection between physicians and patients to provide a direct link of communication without exchanging personal contact information. This reduces the need for patients to make and drive to appointments. There is also a log feature for patients to describe the intensity of their pain on a daily basis to keep a daily log for before and after treatment.
