37°c

An innovative approach to achieving thermal comfort, conducting heat from warmer to colder body parts. To achieve this, a thermal conductive fabric was developed using advanced thermal materials, allowing a passive, natural system to regulate body heat.

Evolution is slow. Our natural defense mechanisms, such as slowing blood flow to hands and feet when temperature decreases, are designed to protect us in extreme situations. But these days, this is mostly just a cause for discomfort.

Other non-powered thermal clothing is designed for keeping warm rather than heating the body, and is neither dynamic nor reactive to the activity and changing conditions of the body.

37°c is perfect for winter sports and climbing, but also for medical applications, such as assisting those who suffer from Raynaud's syndrome (blood flow problems to hands and feet, effecting up to 20% of adults), or just for thermal comfort and energy saving at home.
