How It Works

The Product

The Thermonator is a patented cooling headband that enhances the athlete's performance by providing immediate relief from heat-related fatigue.    

Our product is unique in both design and application.  The Thermonator is created with a lightweight fabric that stretches to comfortably match the size and shape of your head.  The headband has six pockets around the head and one pocket that drops down to cover the back of the neck.  The Thermonator comes with seven gel packs that are placed in each of the pockets once frozen.  Each gel pack contains non-toxic material that will provide cooling relief for up to 30 minutes after freezing. 

How It Works

The human body's natural cooling process occurs with blood carrying heat from the warm interior of the body to the surface of the skin to cool down.  After cooling, the blood is carried back to the interior of the body.  The brain, which has the highest concentration of blood vessels than any other part of the body, plays a crucial role in this process.  

One of the most effective ways to enhance this process is to apply cooling relief to the blood vessels, including pulse points and the back of the neck.  Pulse points are locations on the body where arteries allow blood to flow closest to the surface of the skin; the temples are a primary example.  Additionally, the area of the brain that senses and regulates body temperature is located in the base of the neck in an area called the brainstem. 

The Thermonator simultaneously cools the blood vessels around the circumference of the head, the temples, and the back of the neck, which is why our product is so effective.  

Can the Thermonator Help Control Migraine Pain

Cold therapy and the application of pressure to the forehead and neck are widely accepted as successful treatments for migraine headaches. While there are other treatments that provide pain relief by use of cold therapy or application of pressure, the unique construction of the Thermonator allows for both.  As the Thermonator cools the forehead, temples, back of your neck and base of the skull, it simultaneously applies pressure to these same areas.  Before using the Thermonator you should consult with your physician.
