Thermo Cape from a Doctor´s viewpoint
A longer stay outside in the cold, as is common in our part of the world in the winter, has long been discussed a possible cause for colds. Meanwhile, we know that withdrawing body warmth alone does not cause colds. However, the changes in the body make the beginning of a cold more likely. Thus, it was investigated whether or not cold temperatures can lead to a change in the immune system and lead to possible points of attack: For one thing, the amount of ICAM-1 receptors changes due the cold. These are responsible for the adhesion of white blood cells, which are needed on a cellular level by the immune system. Another thing is that the cold has an inhibiting effect on the ciliated epithelium in the area of the air passages. Thus, the influence of cold air on the cilia can no longer efficiently remove slime and pathogens from the respiration tract. Furthermore, the constriction of the small bronchial tubes due to the cold air promotes infections as well. Thus, all of these studies suggest that the environmental impact of cold temperatures have a favourable influence on the development of infections.

Neck and back pains are meanwhile the second most common reasons for visits to the doctor and are caused by tensed muscles (e.g. from a cold, from a draft, incorrect posture or pulled muscle). Yet also, fear, stress or excessive physical demands can increase muscle tension and trigger neck pain. Muscle tension in the neck and the related cramped posture can also even trigger headaches.
The Thermo Cape has 3 different temperature levels with 34 degrees C, 39 degrees C and 44 degrees C.

Warmth therapy has been proven for quite some time to be a natural method of treatment for tension and pain in the shoulder and neck area and is thus recommended by doctors as the first general measure for relief.
