The power of palm cooling – the next major cold therapy trend
29 Nov 2023
/ Idai Makaya
The performance benefits of cold therapy have filtered from professional sports into the mainstream consumer in recent years.

Ice baths and cryotherapy are regularly used by athletes to maximise performance and optimise recovery, and now, palm cooling is the latest technology to be integrated into leading sports teams worldwide before making its way into commercial gyms.

Idai Makaya, is a 24-hour Chin Up World Record Holder and owner of Bodystreet EMS personal training in Milton Keynes, UK. Makaya set the world record for chin-ups in 24 hours in 2020, achieving 5,340 repetitions.

Having heard about the incredible benefits of palm cooling, he began to integrate the CoreTx GO palm cooling device to boost his performance.

“I’ve built my career on the innovative use of fitness and health technology to improve health and fitness outcomes – and I like to be at the forefront of leading new health and technologies,” he said.

“I can do a very heavy circuit training workout with palm cooling intervals while performing much better than I would without the palm cooling, enhancing my overall training.”
However, Makaya quickly recognised the benefits for his clients as well.

“A colleague of mine based in Germany had been using palm cooling with a variety of his clients for improving recovery after training, but also for improving a variety of health conditions affected by overheating – such as multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, long covid and even some menopausal issues.”

Makaya’s clients found it beneficial to cool down the body both during and immediately after training, especially for less fit clients or people with chronic fatigue, who may typically struggle to recover adequately from hard efforts and activity.
The CoreTx Go Palm Cooling device is the latest technological development from world-leading cold experts CET.

CET, who dominated the elite sports sector in Europe with its CryoSpa Ice Baths, has developed this new palm cooling device, based on Stanford University research, to drastically improve performance and reduce fatigue.
