  • Publication number: 20130061370
    Abstract: A neck scarf which a person can wear to keep himself cool in summer and warm in winter. The scarf's elongated mid-section defines a series of generally rectangular pockets, odd in number, arrayed end-to-end longitudinally for substantially the mid-section's entire length. A single gel pack is slip-fitted into each pocket, which is then sealed shut. Also preparatory to use, each gel pack must be activated: cooling gel packs by placing them in a freezer; warming gel packs by heating them in a microwave. Disposed generally symmetrically about its center pocket, the scarf includes tapered end closure sections used not only to fasten the mid-section snugly about the neck but also to insure the center pocket's gel pack is worn close enough to the hypothalamus to stimulate it, thus magnifying for hours the scarf's effect on its regulation of the body's temperature.

  • Publication number: 20130000874
    Abstract: A body temperature regulating garment apparatus that removes heat from blood flow then releases the heat to the atmosphere by evaporative cooling lowering the temperature of a body. Heat of the blood is absorbed by a moist superabsorbent material, that in turn is maintained at a temperature cooler than the blood by a removable and condition able thermal pack used to store temperature. The enclosure device used to store the superabsorbent material is formable around the thermal pack and around a separable clothing garment such as a scarf or a bandanna. The scarf or bandanna is used to secure the enclosure device to a body part where gathering forms the enclosure to the body part shape, maximizing contact with the area and secured with a gathering means. The clothing garment can be used for displaying advertising, brands or characters, making it more valuable to providers.
