Strong physical exercise can raise the user’s core temperature above 37.5°C. This is an issue known all too well in hot environments and under high physical stress. It leads to lower performance, reduced concentration and fatigue. The risk therefore is clear, with the possibility of exposing the person to dangerous situations - and if the body rises to above 40°C, to life-threatening heat stroke and irreversible health effects.
In order to prevent dangerous levels of overheating the body needs to be cooled. The perspiratory cooling mechanism works well but can be hindered under working circumstances due to external factors, including protective clothing and lack of air movement. This causes the body’s own cooling system to be slowed significantly. For example, a firefighter’s outfit is made to protect their body from external threats such as heat, flame, sharp objects, fluids and more but it does not allow optimized evaporation of sweat to cool down the body. We choose to help overcome this problem by enhancing evaporation of sweat and add cooling when it is needed.
Teijin’s lightweight and comfortable vest offers active cooling with an innovative textile concept to use your sweat more effectively as coolant. Readily available weighty cool packs based on ice, water or Phase Changing Material (PCM) need to be pre-prepared and recharged frequently, whereas our integrated rechargeable battery driven fans lead air through a specially designed textile and remove sweat to enhance the cooling effect of the body. It’s a plug-and-play system that cools where and when cooling is needed and additionally keeps you outer jacket dry from sweat. Teijin’s active cooling vest is available in five different sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL) in order to ensure an optimized fit and performance.
