A peer-reviewed article by Tan et al [1] was published in the February 2017 issue of the Journal of Athletic Training.  The authors conducted a clinical study in which hyperthermic subjects were cooled by three cooling methods, including the ThermoSuit System.  They demonstrated that the ThermoSuit produced significantly faster core body cooling than did the BCU (Body Cooling Unit) and EMCOOLS devices. The authors cited McDermott et al [2] who stated that ideal cooling modalities provide a cooling rate equal to or greater than 0.155°C/min.  Only the ThermoSuit was able to provide a sustained cooling in the ideal range.
