Some endocrine, metabolic and neurological conditions interfere with the ability to regulate body temperature, a type of dysautonomia. This symptom has also been observed in some patients with traumatic head injuries. Most interventions require changing the ambient temperature of a large space or using temporary heating or cooling pads. We will provide Wristify wearable heating and cooling devices to persons with temperature regulation dysautonomia in order to investigate the potential of these devices to provide relief for these symptoms. We will monitor the frequency of activation, track selection of heating or cooling and will assess perceived comfort level before and after activating the device. This work would benefit from inclusion of wearable thermometers to document external body temperature at the time of activation.
