Shoulder Pads that Keep Players Safe from Overheating
COOL Pads will be activated by four temperature sensors that track any change in body temperature. Players will wear COOL Pads with a specially made fitted shirt and fitted shorts lined with temperature sensors that keep the body at the temperature for the best possible sports performance.
Small Temperature Sensors are placed in the 'body heat loss ares': Head, neck, armpits, chest and groin, that work with COOL Pads to make them work when needed.

Normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees, so COOL Pads uses temperature sensors in the areas listed above to always keep the body at 98.6 degrees.
"Last season, by third quarter of my first game, I felt overheated. It was a very hot day, and we were playing against our main rival, so I had to play extra hard. First, my head started hurting and I felt nauseas. I felt weak, and hot, and I wanted something really cold on my body. This feeling made me sick and stopped me from playing my best. We came up with COOL Pads so that no one else would have to feel the way I did."
