T-BAND

- Electric Hot & Cool Contrast Thermal Band

  • Product Description 

- To address the cumbersome of the contrast (hot and cold) therapy for post exercise, we have developed an innovative electrical contrast therapy device that is suitable for use on all body parts at any time and location.


- The device offers contrast, cold, or hot therapy options.


- Powered by a rechargeable battery, operates 41-118℉, offering over 1 hour of use on a single charge. With a weight of under 2lbs., it ensures easy portability and wearability.


- The user-friendly device can be operated either by its own or through the app-based programming for an enhanced user experience



  • Engineering

Certainly, here's a concise summary of the key engineering aspects considered for the development of T-BAND:


- Flexible Thermoelectric Device: Fast, Precise, Portable Thermal Therapy: We developed a flexible thermoelectric device with a keen focus on factors like heat transfer efficiency, precise temperature control, safety, and user convenience. This device stands out due to its flexibility, allowing it to conform to body contours and be customized for individual preferences. It rapidly achieves temperatures between 41 to 118 ℉, allowing it to quickly generate cold or warm heat, sustaining operation for over an hour, all within a lightweight design weighing under 2 lbs. Its electrically operated nature makes it easily controllable, and its wearability makes it ideal for on-the-go thermal therapy.


- User-Centric Design for Convenience and Durability: We designed T-BAND with user convenience in mind, considering size, weight, and ease of handling by users. It's designed as a detachable band, making it easy to attach to various parts of the body. We also focused on convenient storage and transportation. Additionally, our design prioritizes easy maintenance, robust construction, and high-quality materials to ensure the longevity of the instrument.


- User-Friendly Interface: We've ensured the seamless device operability, even for those unfamiliar with it. We developed an intuitive UI with clear controls and indicators for temperature settings, operating modes, safety alerts, and more. Additionally, we've developed an accompanying app that allows users to program it according to their preferences.
