Thermo Regulating Slippers
- Important Information
Some people may not be able to control their body temperature when sleeping. This may be due to a number of reasons that may include but are not limited to: reaction to medication they are taking, menopause, physical disability that prevents them from removing the bed blankets or even it could be a personal condition such as a form of Hyperhidrosis,etc.
The Pelican range of Thermo Regulating (TR) Material items may help some of these people. The TR Material was first developed to help astronauts in space maintain their body temperature. The material should help to ‘keep cold people warmer’ and ‘keep hot people cooler’. The material allows heat from the body to escape and if the body is getting cold, it traps the warmth of the body. Different versions of the TR material are now used for extreme snow sports and some other specialised clothing. As the reason why people perspire can vary a lot, we cannot guarantee the TR Material will work for everyone. As it will be used for sleeping, due to Infection Control requirements, we regret that we are not able to accept the items back for credit if they do not work.
To Use: Put the foot into the TR Slipper with the toes in as far as possible and pull the heel section over the heel. Secure the Velcro around the ankle and cut to length. The two side sections can be folded over the foot and secured with the Velcro tabs.

Sold as a pair
Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag when machine washing this item to give a longer life, as washing can destroy the material faster than using it, just like a normal bed sheet.
Warning for Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Home Care or other facilities: 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.
