We are currently working with EXO Technologies Ltd (http://www.exo2.co.uk/thermoknit-ezp-11.html) to develop electrically heated textile products. Our initial focus is on the further development of heated gloves. A potential use is for the treatment of Raynaud’s phenomenon (http://www.raynauds.org.uk/raynauds/raynauds) a condition where a short exposure to the cold can cause a temporary restriction to the blood flow to the fingers resulting in discomfort and pain. The condition is very common and effects 10% of women in the UK. The ultimate goal is to see the technology adopted by the NHS for use with Raynaud’s patients with a view to increasing functionality, acceptance by patients and with significant reductions in the need for medication.
