Heat exhaustion occurs when people are exposed to high temperatures for extended periods of time without hydration. This can happen in a number of environments, but is most commonly seen when children are left in vehicles by their parents or caregivers. The inside temperatures of a vehicle can easily reach 120F on a hot day in just minutes. Alan Brockway Kryrofit Sports has manufactured compression sleeves that remain cold for 45 minutes and are put on what he calls pulse points.

Here are some some astounding facts About Heat Exhaustion: Heat injuries occur when the body reaches temperatures of 104 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, which may cause cellular damage after 30 minutes or so of elevated temperatures.

 

Heat stroke from exercise is one of the 3 leading causes of sudden death in sports activities. 100%. That’s the survival rate for heat exhaustion when rapid, proper treatment is given to someone suffering from the issue.

31% of the deaths from heat exhaustion symptoms were attributed to exposure to excessive natural heat. Those most prone to heat exhaustion are elderly people, people with high blood pressure, and people working or exercising in a hot environment.

The death rate in the US for heat-related causes since 1979: 0.5 per 1 million.

 

More than 70% of heat stroke deaths occur in children younger than age 2. 3 out of 10 of those incidents occur when a child enters a hot location and cannot escape on their own without the caregiver’s knowledge.

A car can reach 110 degrees when temperatures are only in the 60s. Heat exhaustion can take place when the outside temperature is as low as 57 degrees. In 2016, 94 people died as a result of extreme heat, more than double the 2015 total of 45. Heat exhaustion rates are the highest for athletes who play high school football. A study by Andrew J. Grundstein, an associate professor in the department of geography at the University of Georgia, reported that 123 high school football players died of heat-related illnesses between 1960 and 2009.In fact, from 2005 to 2009, the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research (NCCSIR) in University of North Carolina reported 18 cases in which high school and college athletes suffered fatal exertional heat stroke.“There have been over 35 heat stroke deaths in college and high school athletes in the last 10 years,” according to Rebecca Stearns of the Kory Stringer Institute. “Since 2004, these yearly averages are almost twice that of what we have seen in the decades preceding these years. Kryofit has revolutionized how athletes (and beyond) prevent injury from becoming overheated.

 

Designed to help reduce heat illness and boost performance, Kryofit Sport’s ice-cold compression sleeves are turning the athletic world on their heads and changing the status quo. For the first time, athletes can proactively reduce heat injury, and achieve measureable performance increases. Professional athletes from the NFL, AAA baseball, triathletes, UFC, volleyball, boxing, tennis, soccer, and hockey all see the benefit of this innovative solution. Amateur athletes including competitive runners, crossfit athletes, MMA fighters, boxers, and even casual weekend warriors simply looking to feel better while training have all given rave reviews.

 

Across all sport disciplines there are a variety of equipment to help prevent almost any injury except the #1 cause of hospitalizations and death: Heat Illness. This is generally treated AFTER the damage is done but do nothing to PREVENT it.

 

After much research and 15 years of medical experience, creator Alan Brockway invented Kryofit Sport, the world’s coolest athletic gear…literally. As an adult athlete, Brockway realized there was nothing to help keep him cool during his workouts. Furthermore, his research revealed that dangerous overheating is avoidable, can affect any athlete, and yet no options existed. So, Alan invented a solution.

 

Proactive cooling is taking dangerous overheating seriously. Athletes work hard for gains and deserve to compete at their best in any conditions. Kryofit Sport Targeted Thermal Support (TTS) sleeves help heat or cool the body, saving energy that can be used to boost athletic performance. This is achieved by directly cooling the wearer's blood rather than large muscle groups. This allows the athlete to "warm up" their muscles and joints AND keep cooler.

 

Kryofit Sport sleeves are clinically proven, cools for ~45 minutes over 8 cooling zones and are appropriate for ANY athlete, ANY age, ANY sport.
