      • reduces core temperature
      • time worn is between 8-30 mins
      • Temperature: 5-16 degrees
      • can sustain intensity and speed, reducing thermal strain
      • allows increase in intensity at the end of performance
    • Post-Cooling
      • treat injuries for recovery (cryotherapy)
      • application of ice for soft tissue injuries to reduce swelling and blood leaks
    • Ice Baths
      • used for pain relief
      • good for high impact sports
      • can improve performance
