CoreControl: Minimise The Dangers Of Extreme Heat Exposure

 In Blog

Prolonged exposure to extreme heat is unhealthy, but sometimes it’s an inescapable part of the job. Many people are subject to heat stress every day, whether from their jobs or from the environment they live in. This can lead to a wide variety of serious illnesses and health conditions.

It’s important to understand how heat stress can affect you, and what you can do to mitigate the risks.

 

Dangers Of Extreme Heat Exposure On The Body

Our bodies need to be at 36-38 degrees Celsius to function properly. When your body temperature rises, you are more at risk of a multitude of physical and mental problems. More energy is needed to dissipate the heat, and you can lose vital fluids and get dehydrated.

Your core organs, like your heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, and brain, cannot be exposed to high temperatures very long before your strength, endurance, and cognitive functions start to deteriorate. This severely impacts your performance and can lead to very costly injuries. Heat illnesses can be expensive to treat, not even considering the thousands in lost productivity.

Some of the heat-related illnesses you can experience include:

  • Exhaustion
  • Mental fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Cramping
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of coordination
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Heat stroke

 

Who Is Most At Risk Of Heat Exposure?

No one is immune to heat exposure (especially during the hot summer months), but some people are objectively more at risk than others.

Professional athletes are more prone to overheating due to the amount of physical activity they regularly undergo. Industrial workers in construction, oil, gas, and mining are also at a higher risk due to the combination of heat and hard labour. Workers who wear heavy protective clothing like HAZMAT suits are also more at risk, even if their working environments aren’t extremely hot.

Your skin naturally dissipates heat through your hands, face, feet, and skin. When your body overheats, you begin to sweat – but sometimes, this isn’t enough. The CoreControl Cooling Glove is a supplemental thermal regulation device that can help combat the effects of extreme heat exposure.

The CoreControl works by increasing blood flow to your hands, enhancing the natural heat exchange while keeping your skin at a normal body temperature. Unlike cold water or ice, CoreControl doesn’t constrict your blood vessels and is incredibly effective at extracting heat. Plus, it’s safer, faster, and more efficient than any other technology, device, or product.

CoreControl is the only scientifically-proven body temperature cooling device. Its results are backed up by decades of research by thermoregulation experts.
