Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia(HED)

Ectodermal Dysplasia is not a single disorder, but a group of closely related conditions. Those living with Ectodermal Dysplasia may find that one symptom may be the inability to perspire, which can cause overheating. (From ectodermaldysplasia.org)

"The Polar Child's cooling vest is amazing! We live in Ukraine and our son has HED - Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. He is 4 years old and he doesn't sweat and doesn't like summer, because of heat. This inability to sweat leads to a dangerously high body temperature. It makes our lives difficult. But thanks to your perfect cooling vest we can go to the outside and even play and run. We bought a toddler cooling vest two years ago, and my son wore it very well. It really helps him. We used it about 2 years and our son become older, so we bought cool kids cooling vest: cooling kit with neck wrap etc. This one is bigger and keeps the comfortable temperature about 2 hours. We cannot buy in Ukraine something like this. There are no cooling vests for kids in Ukraine. Truth be told the vest is expensive for us but it is one way to live 5 months in a year. Thank you so much!"
