The non-invasive, uncomplicated patient temperature control

The decades-proven principle of surface cooling / heating using water which has a particularly high Wärme-/Kälteleitfähigkeit is economical and easy to use and the patient quickly and gently apply. The compact form of the HICO -Variotherm 555 and the relatively low weight for the versatile use of the equipment an advantage. The mikroprozessorgesteurte Peltier technology ensures proper running thanks to modern and proven design.The mat allows water under the patient a free operating field for the medical team and prevents heat radiation upwards.

Product Features

  • The handling of the HICO -Variotherm 555 is extremely easy and safe.

Areas of

anesthesia, surgery, intensive care, neonatology, neurosurgery, neurology, emergency medicine, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics, rheumatology, pain centers, Stroke Unit, toxicology, veterinary medicine, trauma surgery

Indications (and others):

  • Heat at preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative hypothermia.
  • Heat supply / removal to stabilize the patient's temperature (normothermia).
  • Heat removal in malignant hyperthermia.
  • State after resuscitation.

Experience has shown that patients under cool preheated during an operation much slower so it is recommended that they be treated for about 1 hour before using heat mats.

The achievement of the target temperature is dependent on the size of the mats and the ambient temperature of the patient.


Along with the HICO -555 Variotherm Only original HICO -water mats and HICO -thermal tube extensions are used as accessories. The materials of the water mats (PU) are free from latex, phthalates and heavy metals. Optional accessories include a robust, tilt-resistant chassis of about 1 m height is available.

The heating of the device is at least 2 ° C. / Min, the cooling time to 1.3 ° C / min. at room temperature and a water temperature in the water tank of the device of 26 ° C.
