Heat Injury Prevention Solutions (HIPS):

Why HIPS? Heat injuries pose a significant risk to your team's health, efficiency, and future prospects. A single heat injury not only incapacitates the affected individual but also diverts team members to provide care. Consider a new military service member: a heat injury could prematurely end their career, making them ineligible for any outdoor work and placing a financial burden on the organization responsible for their medical expenses and medical retirement, potentially costing millions over a lifetime.

Enter HIPS by Qore Performance: The ICEPLATE® Curve stands out as the only thermoregulation solution effective in all climates—both arid and humid—without adding weight to the wearer's gear. It transforms the water personnel already carry into a consumable resource for thermoregulation, offering hydration as well as cooling or heating during use.

ICEPLATE® significantly lowers the risk of heat injuries. By maintaining optimal core body temperature in extreme environments, ICEPLATE® also reduces recovery time from heat exhaustion, ensuring that operational capacity and organizational productivity remain unaffected by austere environments.

In summary, HIPS offers:

  • Prevention of heat injuries

  • Enhanced operational capacity

  • Minimized downtime

  • Reduced costs (Expenses related to incidents, medical care, and retirement)

How does HIPS work?

HIPS streamlines heat injury prevention, allowing thermoregulation experts to take over the logistics. Whether you represent a military installation, unit, agency, drive-thru chain, construction site, or any other entity, getting started is an easy three-step process:


To get started, we just need a few details:

Who: The number of individuals needing ICEPLATE® gear. For larger organizations, we suggest ordering a few extras to ensure everyone is covered for extreme weather conditions.

What: Specify whether the gear is for military, law enforcement, customer-facing roles, or safety purposes (e.g., construction, wildland firefighting, EMS, etc.). This helps us tailor the ICEPLATE® equipment for your specific needs, including whether you require cooling or heating capability.

When: The date and duration for which you need Heat Injury Prevention Solutions.

Where: The delivery location for the ICEPLATES®. We can accommodate any address or coordinates.


We'll deliver your ICEPLATES® via cooler-equipped trucks on the day of your field training, event or day to day operations. Our team will then distribute the ICEPLATES® and set up the necessary Qore Performance gear.

Proceed with your training or daily operations as planned. We will supply replacement ICEPLATES® as needed until the reserved amount is utilized. Used ICEPLATES® will be collected for cleaning and preparation for your next event.

Easily schedule your next training, secure in the knowledge that heat injuries are a thing of the past!

For ongoing needs, multiple dates can be arranged at once. Ensure your team's safety and success with a hassle-free consultation from our experts!
