Cooling Suits



Cooling suits: Space suits were designed for astronauts to survive in extreme temperatures, deflect radiation, and provide life support. Their materials needed to provide essential oxygen, pressure, heating, and cooling while allowing astronauts to remain mobile. Today, cooling suits (including the Cool Vest from ILC Dover) are used in industrial environments to regulate body temperature, as well as in people suffering from hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, a rare disease that prevents the body from cooling itself.
