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.
