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.
Coolture developed a unique cooling solution for the palms. Our Cooling Gloves are constructed from performance spandex to assure you a snug, comfortable fit.
One CoolPak slips into the concealed pocket of each Cooling Glove, with a thumbhole that positions the hidden CoolPak directly onto your palms.
To cool your wrists, you can wear your glove in one of two ways: either wear as intended with your thumb engaged, and with CoolPak at your wrist and one at your palm.
Or you can choose to bypass the thumbhole to position the whole cuff on your wrists.
1. Fold back the flap that conceals the pocket for your CoolPak
2. Insert frozen CoolPak into pocket
3. Return the flap to protect the CoolPak from slipping out
Cooling the palm and wrists can be effective in improving comfort and helping reduce the sweating response.
