TECHNICHE INTERNATIONAL COOLING VESTS FEATURED TO THE WORLD CUP IN BRAZIL

What do motorcyclists and soccer stars have in common? Perhaps the way in which they keep their cool…

Debuted in the World Cup in Brazil, the Dutchmen, the Belgians, the English, and many other professional athletes have been preparing themselves using the unique cooling solutions provided by TechNiche.

It seems that there are two primary options that teams and their doctors were looking at:

1. Solutions provided by TechNiche, such as the unique KewlFit Vest, Hybrid Vest or HyperKewl products.

2. Ice vests with a new wrapping.

Twenty years ago ice vests and ice baths were a mainstay in the locker rooms, but the science of pre-cooling and post cooling has advanced since the days of the ice vest.

Dr. Stacy Sims, Exercise Physiologist at Stanford University, had this to say about ice cooling versus cooling at 58′F/14C, such as provided by TechNiche products, “58‐61′F is a gradient aspect, not an absolute temperature. When you get too cold (i.e. 44′F or colder) it will instigate a vasoconstriction response‐ shunting blood away from the skin back to the core. If you get too warm (65′F plus) there is diminished returns on the amount of heat released/pulled away from the body‐ know that the skin temperature takes on more of the ambient temperature/reflects more of the ambient temperature.. 58‐61′F has been shown to maximize the gradient to reduce heat storage without invoking any vasoconstriction response.”

Basically, ice vests, such as the one being provided by brands such as Adidas and their pre‐cooling vest, are too cold and can cause the veins to dilate, which can prohibit good blood flow to the extremities.

Team doctors of many professional athletes have chosen TechNiche International as their pre-cooling and postcooling solutions provider. TechNiche International has been neither chosen for its brand recognition, nor marketing capabilities, but because TechNiche International provided the best personal cooling solutions, as for over a decade…

So if you are a biker what are your options? One is the TechNiche International’s KewlFit Cooling Vest which uses phase change material to keep the rider at a cool 58F (14C) for two to three hours. This comfortable cool temperature can help the motorcyclist to maintain a lower more comfortable core temperature before the start of riding. This is an ideal tool for both event pre-cooling and post event cooling. The KewlShirt uses TechNiche International’s HyperKewl fabric to help the user stay cool through the evaporation of water contained within the HyperKewl fabric. KewlShirt is light weight and effective for cooling while on any type of ride .
