Technology


Hot dog warming represents a significant breakthrough in technology and features our patented ThermAssure™ fabric.

This state-of-the-art technology warms by using a semi-conductive polymeric fabric that delivers safe and effective heat to the patient – no blowing air, no hot water.

The Hot Dog controller delivers low voltage (48V DC) to the blankets, which warm by electrical resistance. The controller continuously monitors the resistance…maintaining the perfect temperature at all times.

This technology has been developed by the same doctor who invented the Bair Hugger®* forced air warming over 25 years ago.
