I have personally used a heated mattress pad for many years mainly to ease the pain I experience with my joints. I suffer from a particularly nasty form of arthritis and using a heated mattress pad became a no brainer as it really helps to ease the discomfort and pain especially on cold winter nights. Buying an electric blanket or heated mattress pad can be a costly endeavor if you buy one that doesn’t suit your personal needs. I have done extensive research into the various types of electric blankets and mattress pads available and placed all that information in the reviews and articles available on this site. You will find all the reviews very helpful as I cover all the main points about these appliances in depth. By the time you have finished reading a review you will have all the information you need to make that all important buying decision. Please feel free to leave a comment at the end of the reviews about your experience with the electric blanket or heated mattress pad you may have purchased as they can be helpful to other people making similar decisions.
