How does the Biomat® work?

Unlike an electric blanket which uses electric coils to create heat, the Biomat® uses a combination of fabrics and amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays which is then transferred to the body as heat. The heat comes from friction generated within the body through the effects of far infrared rays. Far infrared rays warm the inside of your body and the part of your body making contact with the Biomat®. Should the temperature of any part of the Biomat exceed the set temperature, the thermal sensors distributed throughout the Biomat® will cut off the electric current. When the Biomat® reaches the selected temperature, the negative ion lights will come on and will stay on until the Biomat® needs to raise the temperature. The Biomat® comes with an external control box which allows you to adjust the desired temperature and usage time (between 2, 4, 8, or 12 hours). As an added safety feature, when the controller is set to 131°F or higher, it will automatically step down to 113°F after 4 hours.

Far Infrared & Circulation

Far infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum that has been studied for various health benefits. It provides warmth and relaxation similar to the energy that radiates from the sun. These rays not only benefit muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells and bodily tissues in the deepest parts of the body. The warm stimulating waves temporarily increase local circulation. This deep tissue heating relaxes the muscles and tissues surrounding the joints relieving pain and discomfort.

Increase of Body Temperature

Studies have indicated that during thermotherapy, or hyperthermia, the body is exposed to higher temperatures which causes a significant increase in skin micro-circulation, skin temperature and core temperature.

Negative Ions

Negative ions, or anions, are atoms that have a greater number of electrons (-) than protons (+), which result in a negative charge. They are abundant in natural environments such as forests, mountains, waterfalls and oceans. Negative ions are believed to relieve stress and boost our energy.

Do you suffer from arthritis pain? The Biomat® can help!

My work is exceedingly physical and I have had arthritis and mobility issues for decades. The Biomat® is one component in an overall health strategy to stay healthy and mobile, and to be able to continue working as long as possible. For the record, the Biomat® is my only pain treatment; I take no pain relievers of any kind, either over the counter or prescription, ever. Nowadays, I have little to no awareness that I have arthritis at all.



  • Far Infrared Rays - The combination of natural amethyst and Hyron cotton layer generates far infrared rays (6-12 microns) that the human body can easily absorb.
  • Negative ions - Natural tourmaline and the TOCA™ (tourmaline) layer generates negative ions.
  • EMF - Special layers of fabric in conjunction with the Biomat® EMF Interceptor effectively reduces electromagnetic waves.
