Abstract: This study tested a cooling vest on individuals with multiple sclerosis. The tests helped determine the amount of cooling that should be delivered to the subjects in order for them to perceive that they are cool, reduce fatigue levels and to potentially show a slower rate of rise in core temperature and a faster recovery after exercise.
