It is with great pleasure that we can introduce the first truly heated foam roller on the market
Back in 2006 when foam rollers were just starting to take off, a group of us had the idea to create a heated foam roller. It is just one of those things that makes sense! However, at the time there wasn't enough knowledge about foam rolling or the ability to create something that worked successfully. So as with all great ideas, we binned it!
Thankfully, a little known brand (who are now going to be juggernauts in the fitness industry) have created a workable solution
The MojiHeat, backed by over 1000 people on kickstarter, Foam Roller is a dual-sided massage roller, that can be placed in a microwave for 1 minute and deliver heat for up to 30 minutes. It fits in the microwave because it splits in two - genius!
Moji use a proprietary, patent-pending blend of thermoplastics and additives that allow the roller to be heated safely in a microwave. It does not contain water or gels.
Moji have also created a Massage Ball which is soon to launch in the UK.
Some FAQ's from Moji's website, So why use heat?

How long should I microwave the MojiHeat Roller?
How long will the MojiHeat Roller stay hot?
The MojiHeat Roller stays hot for up to 30 minutes in your home, in a gym, or under normal rolling conditions, but if you are rolling outside in the freezing cold, the roller isn’t going to stay hot very long! The times we have specified typically give you plenty of time to complete your heat therapy rolling session!
How large is the MojiHeat Roller?
The MojiHeat Roller is 13 inches long by 4 inches in diameter and weighs approximately 3 lbs. – large enough for football players, weight lifters, and other large athletes, yet compact and portable enough for a petite yogi! Our test users think it’s a perfect size for a roller.
How can the MojiHeat Roller fit in a microwave?
The MojiHeat roller uses a patents pending two-piece design that is small enough to fit in most microwaves, but large enough to give you all of the benefits of a traditional foam roller.
How Do You Separate Your new MojiHeat™ Roller?
Your new MojiHeat™ Roller ships with a heavy-duty latch that securely attaches the two Roller halves together. Turn the two halves in opposite directions and the Roller separates into two pieces.
Like running shoes or a baseball mitt, your Roller latch has a break-in period. For the first few uses, some customers may struggle to separate the two halves when the Roller is cool. Don’t worry – the latch should loosen up after a few rolling sessions.
We’ve learned the easiest way for most people to separate the Roller is as follows:
Want a hack to help in the break-in period? After you roll, take the still warm Roller apart immediately and keep it apart until your next session. Then, pop it in the microwave and you’re ready to roll.
When should I use a MojiHeat 4” or 2” Massage Ball instead of a MojiHeat Roller?
Although you can use any MojiHeat massager to provide targeted deep tissue relief from muscle soreness and tightness, the MojiHeat 4” Massage Ball and the MojiHeat Roller are best for targeting problems in the back, hips, glutes, quads, hamstrings, IT bands, and calves, while the MojiHeat 2” Massage Ball works well to ease muscle soreness in the neck, arms, legs, feet, back, hips, and hands.
