PROVIDES COMFORT WHEN OVERHEATED • PAIN RELIEF FOR CARPAL TUNNEL + WRIST PAIN • PERFECT FOR FENG FU.
The hand, and especially the palms of the hand, are very unique areas when it comes to cooling.
The palms of the hands contain structures that are called AVA's (arteriovenous anastomoses). These are a concentrated network of small arteries and veins which work like radiators or heat exchangers. This results in these areas being able to potentially exchange relatively larger amounts of heat or cold than their surface area alone would dictate.
Providing cooling to hands can be effective in improving comfort and helping reduce the sweating response (1, 3).
Coolture developed a unique product for cooling the palms - the only palm cooling accessory available. The "fingerless glove" is constructed from performance spandex, resulting in a snug but comfortable fit.
One CoolPak slips into the concealed pocket of each glove, with a thumbhole that positions the hidden CoolPak directly onto your palms.
You can either remove the cooling gloves to free your hands for gripping - or continue your cooling experience by sliding the gloves onto your wrists!
When worn on the wrists, Coolture cooling gloves can provide therapeutic relief from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Coolture designer Van DiBernardo once enjoyed a fulfilling career designing for DKNY. His work found him traveling to production facilities in Italy, Spain, France, and Brasil.
Today Van travels the city blocks of Buffalo, New York, where he manages the side effects of Multiple Sclerosis. His passion for design plays second only to his passion for helping others. So after years of wearing industrial and medical cooling vests to prevent his side effects from worsening, Van designed a cooling solution suited for anyone challenged by heat. He asked himself, "Why not high-tech performance fabrics? Why not detailed styling? Why not create cooling apparel that rises above industrial and medical aesthetics?" The answer to those questions became the first chapter of Coolture.
So how did a great idea turn into a great company?
Luanne DiBernardo set out to find the answers to her brother's questions. Wanting to learn more about core body temperature cooling, she was led to Dr. Thomas Stewart, who holds five patents in the therapeutic control of patient temperature, and is renowned for his advances in wound care. Unbeknownst to Luanne, Dr. Stewart had just left Stryker Medical as VP of Clinical Affairs, closing a 30-year chapter as a leader in the global medical device industry. Intrigued by the concept of bringing quality cooling solutions to the public, Dr. Stewart was intrigued by the opportunity to pioneer Coolture as a leader in lifestyle cooling solutions. With his proven successes, including former President & COO of Gaymar Industries, Dr. Stewart was a natural to helm Coolture. And so began Chapter Two.
In July 2012, Coolture rolled out the first style-conscious cooling vest during one of the hottest summers in recent U.S. history. Runners, golfers, and survivors of chronic illness were the first to respond, despite the young company's quiet launch. Today begins Chapter Three, with you a part of our ongoing story.
