Users comments
Since infrared heat quickly warms up a desired space, it is suitable for people with tetraplegia who freeze easily.
A timer can be attached to avoid forgetting to turn off the infrared heat. The user connected the infrared heater to a light in order to clearly see whether it is on or off.
