Dickson Clinic Paraffin Bath Physical Therapy

dickson clinic parafin

The Dickson Clinic Paraffin Bath is a compact unit with a timed melting or sterilizing circuit that makes it perfect for doctor's offices, hospitals, clinics, or nursing homes. Dickson paraffin baths are designed with input from physical therapists and physicians to serve other physical therapists and physicians in the treatment of pain and discomfort caused by joint disease or injuries of hands and feet. This is the only hot paraffin bath physical therapy device with a timed hi-heat circuit, which allows the melting of paraffin or sanitizing to occur unattended, as well as preventing the hi-heat to be left on accidentally.

This Dickson bath is manufactured with 22 gage 304 stainless steel with a 2B finish, which makes it impervious to the corrosive properties of paraffin and perspiration – even after heavy use. The maximum temperature variation of + or – 1 F (0.55 C) ensures a crucial bath temperature and fastest formation of a coat of paraffin “glove” without which treatment would not protect the immersed extremity from burns even in the midst of great heat input. Additionally, sanitizing is easily accomplished by the operator – doctor or nurse – turning the hi-heat circuit on for an hour at the end of the day. Once the timer goes back to zero, the unit automatically reverts to treatment therapy, ready to be used the following morning.


This product does not include a stand, but it can nonetheless be readily placed on a counter or on the floor.


Do not rely solely on the high heat indicator light to determine that the Dickson clinic paraffin bath physical therapy device is at operating temperature. Always check that the provided thermometer reads a safe temperature (126 F-132 F, or 52.2 C-55.6 C) before immersing a patient’s extremity in the wax. Make sure that there is paraffin in the tank before operating the device. Operating an empty tank may cause the heating elements to burn out. Wash the appendage to be treated with antimicrobial soap and dry it. Place the appendage in the bath and quickly remove several times until the aforementioned glove is thick enough to withstand submersion in comfort. Suggested immersion times for new patients are:

·         10 minutes for fingers.

·         10-15 for hands.

·         15-30 for arms.

·         30-45 for feet.
