Maintaining body temperature is very complex; it also takes a lot of energy. The effect of temperature and moisture in skin integrity within pressure management is well documented and acknowledged as a key extrinsic factor.

  • Excess body heat is absorbed, which charges up the fabric
  • When the body seeks thermal equilibrium, heat gets released through the fabric
  • When the body temperature becomes cooler than the Omnitherm layer, heat is cycled back to the body
