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 it could even 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 cool people warm' and 'keep warm people cool'. 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 clothing, some other specialised clothing and even in shoes to help people who have hot feet. Many people who are under cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy (radiation therapy) may find a benefit from the cooling material.
We highly recommend also using the Thermo Regulating Pillow Cover (sold separately) as the head and neck are areas which can sweat a lot. It can be used in conjunction with the Thermo Regulating Mattress Topper. We can make special sizes and shape covers on request.
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 Fit: The Thermo Regulating Top Sheet is placed on the bed as a normal sheet, with the white Thermo Regulating material on top, so that it is not touching the person in bed. This will prolong the life of the item best. It can be used the other way around, with the white Thermo Regulating material touching the person, but because using it this way will not protect the Thermo Regulating material, it may not last as long.
The special white Thermo Regulating material is sewn onto a standard bed sheet, and there is some standard bed sheet material sheet near the pillow, so when the blankets are on the bed, the head section of the Top Sheet can be folded over the blankets.
The Thermo Regulating Material should be wide enough to cover the person when they turn over, but we are not able to guarantee that they will always be covered if they disturb the sheet too much.
We highly recommend also using the Thermo Regulating Pillow Cover (sold separately) as the head and neck are areas which can sweat a lot. It can be used in conjunction with the Thermo Regulating Top Sheet. We can make special sizes and shape covers on request.

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.
Washing: Hand or Machine Wash up to 80°C. Air Dry in Shade or Cool Tumble Dry. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag, Item 205 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.
