Research Institution

This project develops a small mobile personal cooling system that can be worn conveniently by individuals with heat-related disabilities. The successful development of this mobile technology: (1) supports access, promotes integration, and facilitates the independence of individuals with disabilities in the workplace and educational settings, and during recreational activities; (2) provides increased freedom and independence not only to individuals with multiple sclerosis but also to other disability populations; and (3) has further applicability for workers wearing protective equipment and/or in warm work environments, including workers in commercial and industrial settings, first respondent mission arenas, law enforcement, and the military.
