We understand MS heat-sensitivity, and we know our products can help.
Many people living with MS experience heat intolerance. This
can occur during the warmer summer months, after exercise or even while cooking

conduction may be slowed or even blocked which can cause a temporary worsening
of MS related symptoms.
The effects are reported to be temporary with symptoms
returning to their normal level as the body cools. Each person's MS is unique
and so is how this heat affects individuals. However, if you experience
intolerance to heat, it does not have to limit you!

garments that can help in a variety of situations.
