About

1) You (or someone close to you) are anxious and can't effectively deal with what is going on in your life because of anxiety. OR

2) You (or someone close to you) is emotional (angry, uncontrollably sad, frustrated) and can't function in the moment due to heightened emotions. OR

3) You (or someone close to you) is too hot either because of pregnancy, menopause, or hot conditions and therefore is extremely uncomfortable and angry.

All of these situations prevent healthy functioning because your body is too overwhelmed.

Calm Cuffs effectively communicates to your body via technology that has existed for years in the behavioral health field. Applying cold to a specific point on your body (here, the inside of your wrists), your body and mind are relaxed and you can be brought back to healthy functioning within minutes, if not seconds. 

How to apply Calm Cuffs to your wrists


  • Anxiety causes physical symptoms such as a rise in heart rate. Calm Cuffs provide a sudden surge of cold to your wrists, instantaneously slowing your heart rate and contributing to a feeling of calm and general well-being.
  • Body temperature can rise dramatically when you are under stress. Applying cold to the wrists at that moment triggers a relaxation response.
  • When your body is in a fight or flight state of heightened emotions, targeted cold application can stop you from acting on this response by giving you time to calm down.
  • The physical act of putting on the Calm Cuffs puts you back in the driver’s seat of controlling your emotions. It empowers you to handle the way your body is feeling rather than feeling like you are at the mercy of your body and its emotions.
  • Applying cold directly to the skin is the fastest way to cool down the body.
  • Hot flashes occur when blood vessels dilate near the surface of the skin. The cold from Calm Cuffs sends a message telling your body to relax and encourages the blood vessels to return to normal.
  • Calm Cuffs allow for targeted application of cold—putting it in the right place and holding it there so that you don’t have to. Put your Calm Cuffs on, sit back, and relax.

Calm Cuffs come in pairs and are worn on both wrists at the same time. When Calm Cuffs are needed, remove from freezer or insulated bag and attach to both wrists. Then sit in a relaxed position and let the Calm Cuffs work! Once you feel relief, remove and place back in the freezer.

Our mother is a saint. Except when she gets too hot. It's always been like this. This sweet woman would be lovingly sewing our Halloween costumes one day and then the next she's hurling a spatula across the kitchen because the oven is on and the pasta is boiling and it's too hot.

Our nephew? He's an angel. But he's also five. So when things don't go his way, they REALLY don't go his way.

One day, instead of fleeing, we raced to the freezer and put a bag of frozen peas on our mom's wrists. This concept is a skill that Jennifer had learned in DBT—Dialectical Behavioral Therapy—years ago after she had gone through a bad break-up. (Left-the-apartment-keys-on-the-counter-when-I-was-out-of-town-kind-of-break-up.) 

Putting the extreme cold on our mom’s wrists worked as if we'd switched the "off" button. She felt better instantly and was back to her old self in seconds. We tried this with our nephew the next time he was upset, and he had a much easier time taking deep breaths and calming down.

Nowadays, our mom’s stress and/or overheating doesn’t bother her (or us) anymore. When things are getting tense, one of us just says, “I’ll grab the Calm Cuffs!!” She pops them on and feels better in a flash—a cool flash!

We believe that this product will help you and your family as much as it has helped ours.

Risks and challenges

We have run a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign before, so we know many of the potential issues that can occur after a project funds. For this campaign we already have signed-off manufacture-ready samples and a factory that is ready to produce the Calm Cuffs.

We have worked with this facility in the past and have always had positive results. We don't foresee any problems or delays but will consistently update backers after the project funds to share every step of the manufacturing and fulfillment process until your Calm Cuffs are delivered!
