Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have had three spine surgeries in my lower lumbar from L1 to L5 within the last 15 years which includes a lot of hardware. Now, with age, comes the aches and pains and the only way to eliminate it is to take strong medication which makes me looney, so I don't take it. The Sunbeam Contour Heating Pad is exceptional. Rather than a flat heating pad which is hit and miss at best, this pad supports your back no matter where you sit and provides soothing heat to melt away the pain. There's an automatic turn-off after about 30 minutes so you don't fall asleep and burn yourself. No matter what the cost, it's well worth it to sit and relax pain free. You've got to try this one.

Most heating pads are not designed for a specific body area, but the Sunbeam Model 300-000 is made specifically for the lower back, the “small” of the back and inflates automatically to fit your back contours when you are sitting up in a chair. You turn the air release cap on the valve located on the side of the heating pad and the unit will inflate in a modest way until the pad is lodged snugly in the small of your back, aiding heat flow. There is a remote attached to the cord with four heat settings which you toggle with a button: low, warm, medium and high. We found only the high selection to be warm enough, in fact we would rather have had it be much warmer. You cannot get around the half hour automatic shutdown. According to the directions heat therapy makes the muscles in the sore area relax due to increased blood flow and healing therefore occurs faster.
The cover of the pad is very soft and plush and underneath the cover the “bladder” is...
For the Price this is a fantastic heating pad even without the customizable contouring. Purchased for about $20 to replace the old heating pad and it's better in every way, except for the short 30 minute time limit.
Pros * Fairly rigid design prevents folding and need for re-adjustment * Highly customizable thickness via self inflation/side valve. * Pad inside is comfortable * Cover is nice and soft, washes well and doesn't cause issues with slipping or sweating. * Decent Length Cable * Easy use 1-button control is the perfect distance from the pad (no reaching back or forward to get to it) * 4 Heat settings
Cons * 30-minute timer just doesn't seem long enough, 1-2 hours would be better, but It's for safety, and because you should probably stretch out every 30-ish minutes any way. * High setting is great for me, but isn't quite warm enough for my wife, just a bit warmer would probably be better considering there are 4...
