Nestwarm / Heating product


Diurnal temperature variation may place young children, elderly, and immune-compromised patients at an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. According to Seoul National University School of Public Health, an average of 10°C diurnal variation was shown to weaken the immune response, change the hormonal system, and increase mortality by 2.6 times.
The tube is modular in design and uses the Tetris as motif.
We propose to utilize the thermal energy of the savanna climate in a modular "heat pack tube" for use in the colder night time in order to offset negative health effects of high diurnal temperature variation.
