Salitas, a company out of North Yorkshire, UK, has developed a pretty amazing material that can do wonders for heat management. Use a cold pack made from the material, and you’ll get a temperature of 7°C to 12°C for up to four hours. Anyone who had to deal with cold packs, whether for injuries, for exercise, or as a postoperative compress, would bow to the benefits of the new product.
Features from the product page:
An optimum skin interface temperature in the range of 7-12°C can be maintained for around FOUR HOURS, as opposed to the 20 minutes or so associated with conventional gel packs. The unique patented internal matrix structure of MORPHO™ means that the cooling medium stays where it is needed and does not flow away under the influence of gravity. Used correctly, MORPHO™ can be applied directly to the skin without causing “freezer burn”. MORPHO™ can be shaped and sized according to the application and can be incorporated into textile products for specific local applications. The structure of MORPHO™ allows the individual to move while the product is applied.
