As we celebrate our 30th year of business, and honor Multiple Sclerosis Awareness month, we look back at three decades of relationships with MS non-profits, MS clinics and individuals with MS. Today we are proud to be the leading manufacturer of high-quality and effective cooling garments for the MS community worldwide.

Many people living with MS experience heat intolerance. When a person with MS experiences a rise in body temperature, nerve conduction may be slowed or even blocked which can cause a temporary worsening of MS related symptoms. The effects are reported to be temporary with symptoms returning to their normal level as the body cools.
Cooling garments are a major resource that can be used to help beat the heat. There are many types, technologies and styles of cooling garments that can help in a variety of situations.
Here are some resources to help you learn more about MS and cooling:
- Visit www.MSCooling.info to learn more about web-based studies on MS and cooling on a single, unbiased website.
- See "How do I decide?" for a full comparison of the types of cooling technologies.
- Contact us for our powerpoint presentation on multiple sclerosis and cooling.
- Read an article about MS and cooling research.
- Watch a webinar on Cooling Techniques and Devices presented by Can Do MS and the MSAA.
