About Copper Therapy
Copper Therapy, found online at BuyCopperTherapy.com, is a new product which promises to help people rejuvenate their tired and achy feet and legs, regardless of whether they are at home or at work.
How Does It Work?
The Copper Therapy knee wrap claims to approach knee pain and discomfort by combining the benefits of traditional compression wear with the known muscle pain relief benefits of a heating pad or heating compress. The website says this combination of multiple pain relief therapies is perfect for people with knee pain, regardless of whether the pain is caused by arthritis, aging, or athletic injuries.
Compression wear is said to relieve aches by tightly wrapping an area of your body, in this case the knee, which increases blood flow and circulation to the area, reducing swelling and ultimately relieving pain. In addition, this product is said to use fabric which is 88% infused with copper fibers, which the website says is believed to provide added healing benefits, though scientific study results have been “inconclusive.”
Once Copper Therapy has been wrapped around your knee, the rechargeable battery offers up to one hour of 110 degree heat, which is said to help reduce stiffness, muscle spasms, and tension.
A single knee wrap is currently priced at $19.99 plus the cost of Shipping and Handling, which is $7.99. However, there is a promotion right now where people are invited to order a second wrap for free, as long as they are willing to pay a second Shipping and Handling charge of $7.99.
Customers who are dissatisfied with their Copper Wear purchase for any reason can simply return their product within 60 days, including all accessories in their original packaging along with proof of purchase and your name and mailing address.
Following the receipt of your complete package at their warehouse, you will receive a refund of the full purchase price, less processing and handling.

There are not many user or customer reviews for this product at this time, but there is a lot of available information both on the use of compression wear and on the use of heat therapy. First of all, medical grade compression wear has been shown to provide a list of health benefits to users when properly fitted and made to certain specifications.
Unfortunately, an affordable, As Seen On TV product which is designed as a “one size fits all” item is not going to meet medical standards for compression wear, which should certainly be taken into consideration.
Heat therapy is also a well known pain relief therapy, and is easier to properly replicate in a mass produced device. However, there are issues to consider with this as well. The type and intensity of heat therapy you use often depends on the reason why you have pain in the first place. Customers who have pain related to knee injury may need different types and exposure to heat than people who have pain due to arthritis.
All this being said, it seems that this product is likely best designed for and used by people who have minor aches and pains who are hoping to find a convenient, short term pain relief strategy and are not necessarily dealing with serious or chronic aches, pains, or injuries.
