Decreased concentration and failing fine motor skills are dangerous and lead to rising accident rates.

A cooling effect of up to 12°C below ambient temperature is possible with one activation lasting 5-10 hours.

To activate just submerge the cooling pad in water for 1 minute. After a gentle squeeze it will feel almost dry with no drips, the cooling effect starts immediately.
