About CoolCore Technology
Stealth’s CoolCore® cooling technology adapts to its environment and regulates temperature by managing heat and moisture. The proprietary construction helps manage and distribute moisture quickly throughout the fabric to enhance the evaporation and drying time.
The CoolCore cooling technology is built into the fabric fibres, preventing any decline in performance and keeping its cooling properties. In addition, the CoolCore technology starts with cooling, but the patented yarn technology provides year-round temperature regulation – allowing the cushion to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Chemical-free fabric technology
- Other brands’ materials typically contain topical chemicals that are not only toxic to your skin but also lose their cooling effects after only a few washes. CoolCore cooling technology is incorporated into the fabric fibres, ensuring that performance and cooling properties are maintained. In every weather, CoolCore’s unique technology allows for a controlled evaporative process that keeps you cool, dry, and comfortable.
- CoolCore’s chemical-free, proprietary fabrics result from years of research and development. They keep you cooler, last longer, and shield you from the sun’s damaging rays (UPF).
The Cushions Thermoregulation line from Stealth is a fresh application, not a new technology. CoolCore Technology starts with cooling, but the proprietary yarn technology results in a better textile that regulates temperature all year. In the summer a great foundation layer is also a terrific base layer in the winter.
Preventing pressure ulcers
It can be difficult to completely prevent pressure ulcers, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.
- Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
- Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – your care team will do this if you’re in a hospital or care home
- Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
- Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation
If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
