A Wearable Device for Maintaining Body Temperature
Non-Confidential description of the invention
The invention provides a wearable device around the neck which maintains body temperature when it is not in a climate controlled environment. Thermoregulation of one’s body temperature is achieved by placing a Thermoelectric module in contact with pulse point (Carotid Artery) in neck region and a one wire temperature sensor is programmed to detect body temperature and change to cooling or heating mode automatically. This is achievable as the change in polarity of peltier module makes the cooling side heating and heating side into cooling.
