Hi and what a marvelous product - I had never heard of this before! How cold does the cooling pad get as compared to an ice pack? Are smaller ones made?
How about the same principle for a cordless heating pad?
Answer: Cooling pad manufacturers don’t always offer temperature specs for their products; but one company, Stay Warm Stay Cool, claims that their cooling technology provides “long-lasting cooling relief” at 58 degrees Fahrenheit. Several of the businesses that make cooling pads or cushions for wheelchairs offer additional cooling devices of various styles and sizes - small pads, neck wraps, vests or blankets, for example. Some of these companies (like Body Cooler, CoolSport and Stay Warm Stay Cool) make warming pads that work on a similar principal - that is, without batteries or power adapters.
