Technical presentation of the membrane 

Foam composition : Brevet FR 1257656

Active Patch 4U is constructed of a breathable and permeable foam, sandwiched between a breathable nylon mesh and a black polyurethane membrane.

Each patch contains a specific quantity* of more than 20 different, finely ground*, metal oxides and rare minerals.

The concentration of each ingredient is approx. 30g/m², ground to <5 microns

Its black colour comes from the presence of organic coal. This increases the patches potential to radiate heat and increases the effectiveness.


Physical action of the patch :

Each patch absorbs and returns 95% of the energy it receives. This is done within an infrared spectrum of between 4 to 200 micrometers.

Between 27°C and 39°C, the wavelength of the energy that the body radiates is between 9.28 and 9.66 µm (far infrareds).

  • The human body is a really complex thermo-energetic system :

Each cell, organ and individual emits an energy of its own. Each has a unique signature — within a wide range of wavelengths from 4 to more than 800 µm — allowing it to share information with its external environment, while keeping its own integrity. Sharing while remaining authentic is one of the cornerstones of the perpetual balance of life.

The activity of living tissues is entirely linked to their temperature (Arrhenius Equation). This influences, among other things, enzyme activity, nerve conduction velocity, physical, mental & behavioural activities, vigilance as well as some defective functions.

In the event of an imbalance, the cell, the organ or the individual will seek to adapt itself by trying to keep its integrity at all costs. When deterioration comes, so does the discomfort. This develops into the first preliminary stage of illness or injury.



First, the patches has been used on acupuncture points to replace the needles and the moxa. The results have been astonishing and the first name of the patches was “acu-patch”. But then, physiotherapist tried the patches too, on the trigger points and on the great plexus, and the effects were exceptional and always reproducible. This time the first patch “Active Plus 4U” was born !


Today, the patches are used by the therapist as a complementary tool for their care in order to improve the comfort felt by the patient in these different cases :

  • The muscular discomforts
  • The joint discomforts
  • The ligamento-tendinous discomforts
  • The digestive discomforts
