THERMAL STAR® BODY COOLING SYSTEMTHERMAL STAR® BODY COOLING SYSTEMHistorically, heat stress related injuries are significant threats to the operational effectiveness of both the workplace and military personnel. Every year more than 50,000 people nationwide visit emergency rooms for treatment. Over 500 fatalities are reported annually. The workplace financial loss is estimated to be in the billions of dollars.

The patented and patents-pending portable THERMAL STAR® BODY COOLING SYSTEM will help prevent heat stress and fatigue by maintaining body temperature at a safe level. In addition, it will help increase a person’s alertness, performance, and concentration.

There are many devices that can cool the body. Currently, vests equipped with fans, gel packs or phase change materials are readily available. These garments cover the upper body, restrict movement, and can weigh over 6 lbs. The patented and patents-pending THERMAL STAR® BODY COOLING SYSTEM is unique since it is lighter [ under 2 lbs. ], does not attach to garments or vests, is more compact than other systems, one size fits many users, and it does not require ice, liquids, or gas to operate.

The portable, belt-mounted battery operated THERMAL STAR® BODY COOLING SYSTEM contains a high output fan which is connected to outlet ducts that discharge pressurized ambient air from waist-mounted exhaust nozzles. The nozzles may also be attached to spiral air distribution tubes, which can be placed over our under clothing or directly against the body, neck, or head. Upon operation, the air exiting from the waist-mounted exhaust nozzles or spiral discharge tubes create a cooling effect by evaporating the body’s moisture created from perspiration.

The market potential is enormous since it will help reduce health, safety, and life-threatening concerns over heat stress. It is the first product of its kind that will help companies meet safety standards concerning heat-related issues. Systems are available for construction, military, medical, hazmat, firefighting, handicapped, law enforcement, first responders, athletes, sports enthusiasts, farmers, miners, welders, etc. It is ideal for anyone that is seeking relief when exposed to high environmental temperatures.

Military proven, the first system was developed to keep Army tank personnel cool in desert conditions where inside temperatures could reach 160 degrees F. Amazingly, when we first tested the cooling effect on different surfaces, we discovered that we could even drop the temperature of sun-baked hot asphalt by up to 30 degrees F.
