- Bill Elkins, a member of the U.S. Space Foundation's Space Technology Hall of Fame, is using his experience in developing cooling garments for use in sports and medicine. His company, CoolSystems, has developed the Game Ready[TM] Accelerated Recovery System. Game Ready[TM] ergonomic wraps are designed to custom fit the ankle, knee, back, torso, shoulder, elbow, and wrist and provide deep tissue cooling therapy with intermittent compression to reduce pain, swelling, and tissue damage. Recharge[TM] cooling garments have been developed to lower core body temperature in people with heat-sensitive multiple sclerosis, reducing symptoms such as fatigue, decreased balance, impaired vision, and decreased endurance. The company currently is collaborating with Stanford University Medical Center's Stanford Stroke Center to investigate the effectiveness of discrete hypothermia in stroke and head trauma patients.
