- Important Information
The Thermoregulating (TR) Slippers are designed for people may who 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.
About the Material
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.
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 Hook & Loop Tape around the ankle and cut to length. Fold the two side sections over the top of the foot. Secure with the Hook & Loop Tape.
The Thermoregulating material is a delicate material that wears out more quickly than other materials. See the Important Information tab before ordering for more information.
Item # 944
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.
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 Thermo Regulating 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 Thermo Regulating cells. This looks ugly and will increase in size over time. Despite the damage, the Thermo Regulating 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 Thermo Regulating Slipper product, Thermo Regulating material should never be directly next to the person’s body when in use. The person should never lie directly on or under the Thermo Regulating Material, as this can also damage the material.
Warranty: All Thermo Regulating products have a 3 month repair or replacement warranty, providing the product is washed in a washing bag.
