HeadCoolie Cools Aid Workers in Louisiana

Patented cold therapy headband takes the edge off record heat as volunteers prep ships for Africa, Haiti, Honduras.

Danvers, MA, September 07, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Last month thirteen volunteers from Missions In Motion International Ministries braved the heat and humidity of Louisiana summer to prepare ships for medical and disaster relief for Africa, Haiti and Honduras. To help with the activity, part of the Friend Ships program, IPC Medical donated HeadCoolie thermal headbands to keep the aid workers cool.

During the week of August 4, 2012, Missions In Motion volunteers wore HeadCoolie headbands to provide relief against stifling, above-average temperatures. The patented headband helps prevent heat-related illness by providing consistent, hands-free cooling to the forehead or neck, key areas for regulating body temperature.

“HeadCoolie makes the kind of heat and humidity people face in Louisiana much more tolerable. You recover faster when exerting yourself and have less chance of getting sick from the heat when wearing the headband,” explained Holly Ruma, President of IPC Medical, the company that makes HeadCoolie. “The Missions in Motion volunteers worked hard in brutal conditions, but they worked smart. Taking breaks when needed and wearing their HeadCoolies reduced their risk of heat stroke and other complications.”

The HeadCoolie system combines a high tech headband with an internal pocket positioned to hold cold inserts on the forehead or neck.
