Observational study to investigate reduction in the fatigue syndrome

The use of climate-neutral cooling vests significantly decreases the Uhthoff phenomenon in multiple sclerosis, as the E.COOLINE observational study in South Germany demonstrates.

The results were unequivocal. Even though previously there have been only a few studies on the effects of cooling products on the quality of life of MS patients, over 90 % of patients rated the cooling effect of COOLINE as good to very good and believed that their performance level improved and their symptoms of fatigue decreased.

The comfort of wearing these vests and their capacity for quick and easy handling were rated positively.

Most patients believed that they experienced improved performance, more concentration, and less fatigue both at higher ambient temperatures and during bodily exercise. The fatigue syndrome in particular was repeatedly and explicitly mentioned. Physiotherapists estimated that the onset of fatigue was slower and less intense.
