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.
"The extremity cooling system is working well. Since I had gone through 2 rounds of chemo before I bought the system, I have some neuropathy in my hands and feet. I have used it for rounds 3-5 and will use it for my final round on Monday. I may have less neuropathy because I used the system for the majority of my treatments." - Jackie, San Diego
"I use these [Soft Ice® Mitts] during my chemo treatment to help ward off neuropathy damage to my fingernails. They keep the hands extremely cold and have pockets so that the ice packs can be switched out during my treatments. Very happy to have found these. They work great." - Pamela in Spokane Valley, WA
Heat Related Issues with Peripheral Neuropathy
For people experiencing Small Fiber Neuropathy:
"My mom has small fiber neuropathy, which causes her feet to burn with a "stabbing sensation" almost constantly. We ordered your Kool Max® Cooling Ankle & Foot Wraps almost two months ago now and it really does wonders for helping control her pain while she is out of the house. I can't rave enough on how much of a difference these ice packs have made!" - Aly
For people experiencing Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy:
A study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute finds that cryotherapy, specifically having chemotherapy patients wear frozen gloves and socks for 90-minute periods, is useful for preventing symptoms of neuropathy. According to the study, "The results of the study suggest that that cyrotherapy could be an effective strategy for the prevention of neuropathy in patients with cancer undergoing paclitaxel treatment. Cyrotherapy could support the delivery of optimal chemotherapy by preventing a dose delay or reduction, as well as inhibiting the deterioration of quality of life in cancer patients during and after treatment.” Source: ScienceDaily
