The hand, and especially the palm of the hand, are very unique areas when it comes to cooling. Our cooling gloves are the only "active" way to cool this strategic area.
The palms of the hands contain structures that are called AVA’s (arteriovenous anastomoses). These are a concentrated network of small arteries and veins which work like radiators or heat exchangers. This results in these areas being able to potentially exchange relatively larger amounts of heat or cold than their surface area alone would dictate.
Cooling Accessories can support many individuals with Multiple sclerosis (MS), Heart Disease, Diabetes, COPD, Fibromyalgia, Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and so many more disAbilities and chronic illnesses.
These Cooling Gloves are also great for pain relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendonitis.
- One CoolPak slips into the concealed pocket of each Cooling Glove, with a thumbhole that positions the hidden CoolPak directly onto your palms.
- To cool your wrists, you can wear your glove in one of two ways: either wear as intended with your thumb engaged, and with CoolPak at your wrist and one at your palm.
- Or you can choose to bypass the thumbhole to position the whole cuff on your wrists.
