USB Warm Mouse Pad

When purchasing a new product, an educated consumer is the best buyer.  That’s why we created a page of information all about the heated computer mouse pad.  The USB connected warming mouse pad is an ideal addition to your computer gadget collection.  If you, or someone you know, suffers with cold hands or a cold mouse hand, this product is ideal.  Alone the heated mouse pad serves a purpose, and when combined and used along with our other products, the perfect mouse hand environment is created. 

Much of the information on this page came from research about the healing effects of infrared heat through NASA, infrared saunas, science and technology archives.

Here’s more information about a warm mouse pad, the USB heated computer mouse pad, the ValueRays Infrared heated mouse pad made with a carbon fiber to generate a steady flow or infrared heat for computer users:

  •  Not enough is said about the healing effects of infrared heat.  Now, available as a warm mouse pad, the infrared heat produces a healthy surface for your mouse hand.  The infrared heated mouse pad is designed using a carbon fiber.  Carbon fibers produce infrared heat.  The warm mouse pad delivers a steady level of infrared heat on the surface of the mousepad.  It doesn’t get “hot” and it won’t melt your computer mouse. The warm mouse pad’s heating element is under the smooth mousepad surface creating a comfortably warm mouse pad.  The pad’s surface is warm, making a comfortable resting place for the mouse hand, the palm of the hand and the thumb.
  •  A heated mouse pad warms the hand in the same manner as natural sunlight without the harmful UV rays.  The deep penetrating infrared heat rays travel through the skin’s layers deep into the muscle tissue.  Along the way, blood circulation increases, toxins are removed, and the healing of stiffness and pain is experienced.
  • Mousepads are cold to the touch.  After long use, a mouse hand gets cold because it’s resting on a cold surface.  The ValueRays infrared heated warm mouse pad eliminates the cold surface making it easy to work for longer periods of time without a cold mouse hand.
  • ValueRays uses a low 5 volt heating element for the warm mouse pad making it very safe for use at home or at work.  Plug the USB cord into the USB port when using the heated mouse and  or pull the plug when the heated mouse pad is not needed.
  • Occupational Therapists and Hand Therapists report an increase of hand injuries due to the increased amount of computer use.  The importance of ergonomics is at an all-time high.  The use of healthy computer gadgets will assist in creating a productive and healing work environment.  The infrared heated computer mouse pad assists a worker’s rehabilitation after hand injury during and ongoing throughout the rehabilitative, healing process. 
  • A warm computer mousepad feels good all year.  During the winter when temperatures drop, the heated mouse pad delivers a cost-efficient heat source to your mouse hand.  When your hand is warm, the comfort travels to the rest of the body.  In the summer, when air-conditioning is used to cool a room or office space, the heated computer mousepad takes the cold edge off your mouse hand. 
  • Some medications decrease the flow of blood to the extremeties causing cold hands and a cold mouse hand and mouse hand fingers.  The fingertips contain some of the densest areas of nerve endings on the human body, they are also the richest source of tactile feedback so that sense of touch is intimately associated with human hands. When your hands feel cold in normal room temperatures due to some medications, a warm mouse pad will help compensate for the decrease in blood flow and the infrared heat will actually increase blood flow through the blood vessels which decreases the chance of poor circulation.
  • Smoking and the use of nicotine can cause cold hands.  Infrared heat helps to remove the toxins in the blood cells picked up through smoking and through other environmental activities, even in some of the foods we eat and the air we breathe.  An infrared heated mouse pad when used for 20-30 minutes daily can help rid the body of these unwanted toxins.  Infrared heat has the power to heal and repair.
  • There are a variety of medical conditions people deal with daily which have cold hand symptoms and side effects.  These people could benefit from using a heated computer mouse pad.  Some of the medical conditions include: Raynaud’s disease, low thyroid levels, anemia, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis and many other medical conditions can produce cold hands. Sometimes these conditions make your entire body feel chilled and cold. An infrared heated mouse pad can help keep you feeling comfortable even when others don’t feel cold.
  • Hypertension, stess, anxiety and nervous tendancies may require certain medications.  These medications can cause cold hands.  If suffering from stress or tension is part of your everyday lifestyle, or if the medication you are taking to control these medical conditions causes your hands to become cold, the warmth created by an infrared heated mousepad can provide relaxation and a soothing work experience.
  • Warmth and heat is soothing when your hands hurt.  Painful hands are not uncommon for computer users.  Fingers, thumbs, palms, wrists, etc. ache, and these aches & pains come and go depending upon our actvities and the amount of time we sit and work at the computer.  A warm computer mouse pad surface helps relieve the pain by increasing blood flow, expanding blood vessels and increaseing blood circulation. 
  • We recently tested the postive results of infrared heat at an Occupational Therapy Lab with a fibromyalgia patient.  The infraed heated mouse pad created a comfortable work area and a reduction of stress and pain.  When you feel comfortable, the amount of time performing tasks increases.  Not only does the infrared heat help increase blood flow, it also helps increase a person’s desire.  When warmth is generated from a heated, warm mouse pad, a person feels relaxed, less tense and less stressed. 
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common hand ailments experienced by many computer users.  Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the median nerve to be compressed. The result may be pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. A warm mouse pad can help increase blood circulation to the tendons and reduce the chances of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from occuring.  When proactive approaches like using an infrared heated mousepad are practiced, some Carpal Tunnel problems are reversible or can be avoided altogether.  Seek the advice of a professional if CTS is suspected.  Do not rely solely upon the information found on the Internet.
  • An Infrared heated mouse pad helps dilate blood vessels for CTS, CTD, RSI and Raynaud’s, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue problems. Increased blood circulation allows more oxygen to get to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. Infrared heat has also been used extensively in the treatment of arthritis, rheuematism, muscle spasms and pain relief.
  • There are over 100 types of arthritis.  Heat therapy is one way to treat arthritis.  The warming infrared heat generated by an USB heated mouse pad penetrates deeply through skin layers into the muscles.  Infrared heat has been used for many centuries by Eastern medicines.  It’s now available in computer devices, and the infrared heated mouse pad is ideal for painful hands, fingers, muscels and joints.  The warming mouse pad can actually help loosen and prevent tense muscles.  Research indicates 20-30 minutes of infrared heat therapy daily improves circulation and produces positive results.
  • Warmth for people who suffer from phenomenons and syndromes not yet classified as a disease is provided by infrared heated computer devices.  On of these phenomenons is called Raynaud’s.  There’s no known cure for the phenomenon known as Raynaud’s Disease, but there are ways to help the Raynaud’s sufferer be more comfortable.  A warm, heated mouse pad helps create a comfortable mouse hand experience for a person with cold hands.  Most Raynaud’s sufferers report cold hands, feet and extremeties due to spasms which cause blood vessels to tighten and close.  The Raynaud’s attacks can be brought on by a number of things, including the onset of cold weather, a drop in temperature and emotional or mental stress.
  • Infrared heat has been used for over 30 years in hospitals incubators for premature babies. Nasa uses Infrared heat in manned missions reconizing the health and safety benefits for the Astronauts.
  • When toxins are present, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. The body’s immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult to fight disease. When Infrared heat  is applied, the large water molecules in our bodies containing toxic gases like sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide, lead, mercury and chlorine vibrate and are broken down. The encapsulated toxic materials and gases are then purged from the body through the skin, during urination and perspiration. Infrared saunas are famous for their detox qualities.
  • Infrared heat is absorbed by cells, causing a physical phenomenon called “resonance.”  The cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism. The increased blood circulation, but not blood pressure, stimulates the tiny blood vessels in the skin to expand accommodating the increased blood flow. For more information about this phenomenon, search Google for Therasage – a company devoted to the healing effects of infrared heat.
  • Toxins in our bodies are generally acidic. Where toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked. Infrared heat therapy is effective in expanding clogged capillary vessels and successful in dissolving the toxins into the blood and out of the body via urine and perspiration.
  • Infrared heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Recent health and medical studies name Infrared heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, rheumatism and muscle pain.   
  • Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) accumulate in the body everday.  The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating and urination, but the process is sometimes slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the detoxification process.  Infrared heat technology simply speeds up the body’s natural process.
