Stanford Researchers’ Cooling Glove Boosts Exercise Recovery

Stanford University.
I got heated up in a hot room in 140 degrees. Ran about three miles.
Feels like you’re going through a run in a desert Normally, it would take a while to
get his core temp to back down to normal. What we’re doing now is to cool subject
off at a much faster rate with a cooling device that we have put on his palm.
How you’re doing? Our major heat exchange surfaces in the
body are, are palms of our hands, the soles of our feet and our face.
And the reason is that these skin surfaces are under lane by very special blood
vessels. The device that we have, which we call
rapid thermal exchange or RTX, imposes a vacuum on that surface.
It’s about what you can suck through a straw.
And then, the cool blood from the heat exchange surface goes back into the core.
The skin temperature is much darker so he’s cooled down quite rapidly.
We’ve done endurance, treadmill work in the heat.
We’ve done bench press studies, We’ve done pull up studies.
And in all cases, what we can do by extracting heat from one hand is we can
dramatically improve performance. What we were able to do is compare the
rate of conditioning improvement, whether strength or work capacity with our
technique with what’s been published on steroids.
And our rates are much higher. You definitely can feel the difference.
You definitely can work out a little longer.
The next time you come in you’re feel better, feeling stronger.
You can reach your maximum performance capacity without using performance
enhancing drugs. For more, please visit us at

  1. Darpa developed this about a decade ago. I remember reading about this in Wired while I was in Afghanistan. It not only super cools your blood but also allows your body to recover faster between workouts or rigorous exertion. They basically saw our bodies sweat glands as inefficient and wanted to improve the process a bonus was that it helps oxygenate the blood which allows your muscles to recover faster since fatigue is just lack of oxygen which causes lactic acid build up.

  2. I dont think that would work as well. If you cool down your whole hand, the blood vessels will contract and reduce blood flow. With the palm thing it's only… ah fuck it I don't know what I'm talking about lol

  3. So, does this device have practical applications regarding healing time?? And if this ends up having some kind of legitimate science behind, will this be out for the common man at any point??

  4. It would be a shame for you not to bulk up when these normal people do it easily using Max Muscle Extend (Google it).

  5. based on the fact that holding a bottle of water between set decreases your waiting time between sets.

    So do that, hold your bottle between sets next time to cool down.

  6. They sell a commercial version through AvaCore, but I guess they're between models – the next version is suppose to be released by spring. The old one had a wonky twist-turn airlock system to form a seal for the vacuum; the new one just uses grippy rubber like in the video.

  7. "This is far more effective than ice water, since it will merely cause the veins to constrict, in effect increasing body heat."

  8. I'm just waiting for the glue to dry on mine. I don't think it will work. I hope it does, but I don't think it will.

  9. Hey YouTubers, have you experienced Atomic Max Muscle? (Google it) You will find out about the crimes we commit against our bodies. With Atomic Max Muscle, you will discover how to get ripped fast.

  10. can anyone link me to the website where i can buy one of these? i'm anatural bodybuilder and this would surely help me

  11. "you can reach your maximum performance capacity without using performance enhancing drugs" You're right..but performance enhancing drugs take you well beyond your natural capacity

  12. If you where able to workout twice as much as you normally would, would the risk of injury increase? Is muscle fatigue solely because of overheating? I would think not, otherwise you would be able to workout indefintly with the cooling gloves. Does the fact that MPK is heat-sensitive serve another purpose other than preventing your muscles from overheating?

  13. Cooling only applies in high intensity workouts like running or cycling. There is no need for cooling in low intensity workouts like weightlifting.

  14. I'm considering this for powerlifting. I max out on at least 1 of the 3 lifts per week. Perhaps this will help CNS recover quicker? Raw squat is extremely taxing. If this thing helps it would be well worth it.

  15. cheap vacuum pump tube like on a foodsaver , plastic bag , adhesive tape , ice packs . =50 million dollars in DARPA research lol

  16. What is the difference, in terms of results, between the cooling glove and pressing ice/cold water in your hand? The results would be the same?

  17. You can replicate these same results with ice and water in an ice chest. Dunk you hand in for 60 seconds and your body cools off faster.
