Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS HXT?
HXT is a system that supplies external heat to various areas of the body. Hands, feet, head etc. The technology allows the amount of heat, delivered to the body, to be adjusted and directed to specific areas.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Specially designed packs, containing microwaveable materials, are placed in specially designed and patented heat chambers, These special heat chambers can be placed in many different accessories, hats, gloves, socks to name a few. Heat can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of time the pack is micro-waved. Heat can also be increased or decreased by adding or removing packs. Heat can be directed to specific areas depending on which heat chamber the packs are placed.
ISN'T THIS THE SAME AS GLOVES CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET THAT USE CARBON HEAT PACKS?
No. Carbon heat packs are not as efficient as HXT. When placed between the hand and the glove they do not receive the amount of oxygen they need to produce full heat. When placed in the zippered areas that some glove have, most of the heat escapes to the outside and is not directed to the hand. HXT contains a second component, the patent pending "Heat Chamber". The heat chamber directs over 90% of the heat to the hand and prevents heat from escaping to the outside.
BUT, CAN I USE CARBON HEAT PACKS IN MY HXT GLOVES?
Sure! If you do not have access to a microwave (for example when you are tailgating or skiing) you can extend the heating time of your HXT gloves up to 10 hours by using carbon heat packs. However, remember carbon heat packs are not reusable or eco-friendly.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN THE HXT GEL PACKS BE USED AND ARE THEY DURABLE?
HXT packs can be re-used an unlimited number of times and when used according to directions will last thru many winters.
HOW LONG WILL HXT GEL PACKS PRODUCE HEAT?
There are a number of factors that determine heat time. Number of gel packs being used, microwave time, outside temperature, and personal warmth. However, the average time of heat production with microwaveable packs is up to 3 hours.
WHO IS THE TYPICAL CUSTOMER?
Studies have shown that up to 40% of the population are not satisfied with their current cold weather accessories. This is often caused by poor circulation due to physical symptoms Raynoulds syndrome, Arthritis, Diabetes, Low Blood Pressure, use of blood thinners, age related circulation, and simply living in an extremely cold climate. While outdoor sports enthusiasts, such as skiers, snowboarders, runners etc, are target customers. HXT also lends itself to daily activities such as driving, shoveling snow, and just keeping warm while watching TV or at a kid's soccer game.
I HAVE ARTHRITIS. WILL HXT GLOVES HELP?
Absolutely. If you receive relief from the application of heat, HXT is the perfect application. Your HXT gloves can relieve pain and give added flexibility. HXT gloves can even be used inside. They can provide relief while watching TV, reading, or doing light housework.
