Athletes are always looking for an edge, especially in the ultra-competitive world of individual sports like tennis, golf and running.
CoreControl is positioned to help.
CoreControl is a unique and cutting edge cooling glove that cools the blood while rapidly removing heat from the core body, refreshing and re-energizing athletes to get back on the court or field of play in a matter of minutes.
You wear the glove for up to five minutes during breaks in play and supporters say it will refresh you when the action on the court of field begins.
In professional sports. both the San Francisco 49ers and Golden State Warriors use it, as well as Stanford football, tennis and quite a few other athletic teams. It’s used by EMS, police and the elderly. They have been featured on NFL Network on CNN, as well as ESPN and The Weather Channel. Here are a few links that show what the product does and the science behind cooling your core.
The Florida State men's tennis team tried out CoreControl for a match against Texas early in March and they seemed ot like the results.
I haven't tried it myself, and I haven't been able to get a doctor's opinion on the technology, but I was able to talk to Florida State men's tennis coach Dwayne Hultquist about how they went about trying CoreControl for an early season match.
"We are always looking at new technology such as recovery drinks and tennis related equipment," stated Hultquist. "It was only natural we would try this, and I think things like this can help."
After one day of trying it, Hultquist said the results were positive.
“It kept my players going. One guy that used it cramps a lot, but he put on the glove and it was extremely effective. It kept him from cramping and I noticed he was playing differently."
Hultquist say that being in Florida, it gets hot and he's not only concerned about his players cramping, but also recovery time as there will be matches the next day.
The secret to CoreControl is that it removes heat out of the body.
CoreControl enhances heat extraction through these radiator surfaces (of the body) by amplifying local blood flow using a proprietary and scientific combination of carefully controlled temperature settings and slight vacuum.
Hultquist says he is always concerned about one player in particular when it comes to cramping, and the player and the teams trainer agreed that it helped.
Hultquist isn't sure if there are plans for the university to buy a CoreControl system, but he used words like "effective","benefit" and "would like to try again" in out conversation.
One reminder, CoreControl is not a medical device and should not be used in case of a heat stroke. It also isn't a substitute for hydrating properly and continued hydration during physical activity.
I suspect we'll be hearing more about CoreControl when other universities, teams and organizations get on board.
One doesn't really feel CoreControl effects so much as a cooling sensation, but rather as the sensation of being refreshed or less fatigued.
It may just be the added edge an athlete needs to pull through in extreme heat or conditions.
