Stanford Researchers’ Cooling Glove Boosts Exercise Recovery


Stanford University.
I got heated up in a hot room in 140 degrees. Ran about three miles.
Feels like you’re going through a run in a desert Normally, it would take a while to
get his core temp to back down to normal. What we’re doing now is to cool subject
off at a much faster rate with a cooling device that we have put on his palm.
How you’re doing? Our major heat exchange surfaces in the
body are, are palms of our hands, the soles of our feet and our face.
And the reason is that these skin surfaces are under lane by very special blood
vessels. The device that we have, which we call
rapid thermal exchange or RTX, imposes a vacuum on that surface.
It’s about what you can suck through a straw.
And then, the cool blood from the heat exchange surface goes back into the core.
The skin temperature is much darker so he’s cooled down quite rapidly.
We’ve done endurance, treadmill work in the heat.
We’ve done bench press studies, We’ve done pull up studies.
And in all cases, what we can do by extracting heat from one hand is we can
dramatically improve performance. What we were able to do is compare the
rate of conditioning improvement, whether strength or work capacity with our
technique with what’s been published on steroids.
And our rates are much higher. You definitely can feel the difference.
You definitely can work out a little longer.
The next time you come in you’re feel better, feeling stronger.
You can reach your maximum performance capacity without using performance
enhancing drugs. For more, please visit us at stanford.edu.
