How to Prevent Heat Injuries in Military Training

Summary Exertional Heat Illness (EHI) fundamentally negatively impacts warfighter performance.  This paper references independent scientific and military research to summarize the impact of conductive cooling in preventing exertional heat illness and providing an operational advantage to the individual warfighter.

Logistics Magic: This Water Bottle Could Save Lives, Keep Soldiers Out of Harms Way

Among IcePlate’s various redeeming features, space efficiency remains at the top of the list. IcePlates nestle together, eliminating wasted space, and maximizing cube utilization.

To illustrate this more effectively, we’ll compare the cube utilization of IcePlate to bottled water. For simplicity’s sake, we are going to make several assumptions: We won’t take into account the space lost by the containers themselves (those are considered usable space in our calculations). We will also disregard the space lost immediately surrounding the caps. We are assuming neither the IcePlates nor the bottled water are sub-packaged. Let’s imagine that we...
