Better Lifestyle for Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
Our wearable air conditioner technology will start the journey to a normal life for millions with Multiple Sclerosis
Studies have shown that nerves with damaged myelin are sensitive to changes in temperature. Researchers note that a rise in temperature may cause an effective failure in transmission of signals from brain to the body (nerve conduction), and a reduction in temperature may allow more signals to be transmitted across the damaged nerve.
The idea of cooling individuals with MS to alleviate symptoms is not a new one. Several research program where conducted during the 1950’s using cool baths.
Davis et. al.(J ApplPhysiol 109: 1531–1537, 2010) have demonstrated that cooler temperatures preserve functions and decrease worsening of symptoms over time. Sudden change in temperature can worsen the symptoms as well. Unfortunately, there is no cost effective and convenient means to manage temperature anyplace, anytime. MiClimate has developed a wearable air conditioner to create a Personal Temperature Management System (PTMS) for people with MS and other temperature sensitivity diseases.

WHAT IS MOTIVATING US
when my system is overtaxed (like when I’m overheated), it shuts down and I have strokes and sometimes seizures.
I have a 5 yr old boy, 3 yr old girl, and a 11 month old boy. I want to go to their football and baseball and soccer games.
I live in FL and I take medication that makes me sweat. I can’t even put clothes on until I’m ready to walk out the door. Once out there, within 10 minutes, I’m soaked. I look like I just stepped out of the shower.RD
