With more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing cooling garments, we hear from many individuals on how our cooling products have helped them manage their heat intolerance and enhance their quality of life.
"We have had our vest about a year now. My daughter is unable to sweat and self-cool. Thanks to the [Cool Kids Cooling Vest], my daughter has been able to actively participate in physical education and recess without risk of overheating. It is easy for her to use by herself. She keeps it in a mini-fridge in her classroom and uses it as needed. Thank you so much for your product." - Jen D. in West Virginia
Heat Related Issues with Anhidrosis and the inability to sweat:
Anhidrosis is the inability to sweat normally. When you don't sweat (perspire), your body can't cool itself, which can lead to overheating and sometimes to heatstroke — a potentially fatal condition. Heat-related illnesses are the most serious complications of anhidrosis. Children are especially vulnerable because their core temperatures rise faster than adults', and their bodies release heat less efficiently. Heat-related problems include heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

Also, as noted in the research study abstract titled, An Innovative Cooling Jacket to Combat Heat Intolerance in Children with Anhidrosis, the authors stated: "Hyperthermia and heat intolerance are distressing symptoms in patients with anhidrosis. Body cooling devices are an integral part of management of these patients."
Non-Profits: Editor's note: Our editors could not find an organization that supports the needs of anhidrosis sufferers. Please advise us of any such organization.
