WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Thermoregulating Slippers are designed for people who may not be able to control their body temperature when sleeping. This may be due to a number of reasons that may include:
- Reaction to medication
- A physical disability that prevents someone from removing the bed blankets
- A personal condition such as a form of hyperhidrosis, etc.
The thermoregulating material contains micro-encapsulated Phase Change Materials (PCMs), and was first developed to help astronauts maintain their body temperature. The material should help to ‘keep cool people warm’ and ‘keep warm people cool’. The material allows heat from the body to escape, or if the body is getting cold, it traps the warmth. Many people who are undergoing cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy may benefit from the cooling material.
This product is sold as a pair.

General Warning: Be aware that this item may mask the effects if someone does get an infection. Always check with a medical therapist that this item will be suitable.
Material Warning: The Thermoregulating material is a delicate material that wears out more quickly than other materials. The wear can be due to normal use, as well as the washing process.The material can stretch and distort, so the material opens between the rows of the Thermoregulating cells. This looks ugly and will increase in size over time. Despite the damage, the Thermoregulating qualities should still help people control their temperature. To help prevent this damage, always use a large washing bag, such as the Pelican Washing Bag, when washing the product. The washing bag is designed to help protect the material from getting damaged with other items in the washing machine, and from being directly next to the drum and agitators in the machine. Remember that except for the Thermoregulating Slippers, the material should never be directly next to the person’s body when in use. The person should never lie directly on or under the Thermoregulating Material, as this can damage the material.
Warranty: All Thermoregulating products have a 3 month repair or replacement warranty, providing the product is washed in a washing bag.
