Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. The Autonomic Nervous System controls the "automatic" functions of the body that we do not consciously think about- a primary example being temperature control. Some different forms of dysautonomia include: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Neurocardiogenic Syncope (NCS), Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA).

"Hi!! I ordered my [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest] in July. I was diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) last June. It's been one year since my diagnosis. I struggle daily to live a normal life. I have severe heat intolerance due to my syndrome due to my autonomic system failure. I wanted to be able to enjoy outdoor activities again and found your product. I went to the beach this month and wore it and was able to enjoy myself. This product is amazing! I have told all my fellow POTS sufferers!!"

"I bought the cooling vest and two sets of ice packs for my teenager. This vest works great! My daughter has POTS and we have highly suggested this vest to our peers."

"I bought this Cool Comfort® Hidden Vest for work. I work in an aquatic center and my uniform shirt is 100% polyester. Since it's started hitting the 60s outside, I've been miserable (I have dysautonomia). This vest does a good job of keeping me cooler. I also like that i can wear it my undershirt and work polo and no one can tell it's there."

"I bought this vest for my husband, who is 6'3" and wears a 3XL. He has dysautonomia, chronic migraines, and fibromyalgia. He does not handle hot weather well. He is also an automotive technician, so he works in a hot shop and often times over a hot engine. He has only been wearing the Kool Max® vest for a week now, but he is absolutely in love with it. It fits him well, is comfortable to wear at work and he is much cooler with his vest."
