About this project
After years of dedication and research, Astec Int and Zondo have developed a unique fabric which draws energy and reflects body heat. The world's first "Self Heating Gloves and Insoles" are entirely battery free.
There may be as many as ten million people who suffer from Raynaud`s disease in the UK (one in 6). It is thought, up to 20% of the adult population worldwide suffers from varying degrees of the condition. Having products that will help circulation in their hands and feet is groundbreaking. In testing, positive results were reported by people who had used these revolutionary new products, after only 10 minutes.
The Self Heating Gloves and Insoles are not just for people with Raynaud`s disease. Anyone who has poor circulation, or like me, has spent many an uncomfortable hour or two with freezing hands and feet supporting my favourite team on a Saturday afternoon, will love these amazing products!
History of material
The materials used in the gloves and insoles were developed for the German military and have had many forms over the past 7 years. The materials are used by major corporations such as Airbus, in the screening and absorption of energy, EMC, RF frequencies.
Body screening products are a very new concept, but they have been welcomed enthusiastically by many people over the last year. Our newest material is the best yet giving amazing initial results in body screening.
How it works
The patented heating fleece reflects the radiation from the body in order to raise and maintain your natural body temperature. The polymer metal coated fibers create an excellent circulation of warmth.
Our Specialist nano fabric is touch screen compatible so you can always have what you need at your finger tips!
We have created a variety of pledges to suit everyone's needs. We have added some of the www.zondo.co.uk products into the mix. Please take a look.
Added Value to Pledges
The Zondo Booties are luxuriously warm and act as an insulating sock but with a weather resistant shell. The combined rubber and EVA sole provides a flexible, cushioned and anti-slip base to provide maximum comfort whilst keeping you steady on your feet. A soft fleece lining sits inside a water resistant nylon coating to maximise warmth, comfort and to create the perfect indoor and outdoor footwear crossover. As well as being ultra-lightweight the Zondo booties also come in a wide variety of colours to appeal to everyone’s taste. The booties are ideal for both camping and for casual wear around the home during the chilly winter months.

Feedback from people with Raynaurd`s disease on insoles and gloves:
- Positive warming effect on the condition.
- The warming effect was noticed in 10 minutes.
- The effects are best noticed when moving around or exercising.
- They work very well in wet and cold conditions as well.
Average user wears the insole 10-12 hours a day, they found it very comfortable and would recommend it to friends and family as well as others who suffer from the same condition. Some results show that after wearing the gloves for 90 minutes the patients hands were pleasantly hotter than usual because they had not had any circulation in their fingers for so long.
Isobel has been suffering with Raynaud`s for over 25 years. See her results yourself. Hardly any blood supply got to Isobel`s finger tips before she tried the gloves but look at the picture after 30 minutes of wearing the gloves.
