DermaTherapy can help with skin conditions and night sweats according to their website. The night sweats are what caught my attention in a press release from the company. They stated:
During a workout, the body can typically get as warm as 105 degrees, causing the body to trigger its sweat mechanism to dissipate the excess heat. For serious exercisers, especially those who work out at the end of the day, the sweating can persist until well after bedtime.
I had never considered this aspect of night sweats, but it makes sense.
Wanting to know more information, I sent a few questions to DermaTherapy. Traci Broughton, Sr. Market Manager for Precision Fabrics Group, Inc. was kind enough to respond.
Our questions are listed below with Traci’s answers as they were sent.
1) How is DermaTherapy different from normal bedding?
DermaTherapy is very different from “normal” bedding as most normal bedding is intended to just be decorative. DermaTherapy actually does something for you while you sleep. The fabric itself is designed to wick moisture away from the body and disperse it through the fabric so it dries very quickly and leaves you feeling dry as well which in turn allows you to sleep better.
2) What is a Class 1 Medical Device and why is it important for DermaTherapy?
The FDA’s classification of a Class 1 medical device is the device is not intended for use in supporting or sustaining life or to be of substantial importance in preventing impairment to human health, and they may not present a potential unreasonable risk of illness or injury. This classification is important to DermaTherapy because it has been through the FDA screening process and allows us to make claims about a better night’s sleep.
3) How can the CoolSensations bedding help those who work out?
CoolSensations bedding made with DermaTherapy technology can help those who work out by keeping them cooler at night while they are sleeping. It is proven that your body temperature is elevated during a work out, and that it can take some time to “cool back down” so especially for those folks who work out in the evenings, CoolSensations bedding will help them stay cool and therefore more comfortable during the night.
4) Do the antimicrobial properties need any special care?
Yes, to keep the antimicrobial properties effective, you must not use any type of fabric softener during your laundry process (in the washer or dryer sheets). Also, we do not recommend the use of bleach on the fabric.
5) How important is sleep to the proper exercise regiment?
Sleep is important to all aspects of our lives. When we get a good night’s sleep, we feel better during the day, and typically have more energy to do the things we want to do – such as exercise!
