Our mission was to create a passive rewarming device to assist the Canadian Coast Guard with hypothermia patients after cold water rescue.
Rigorous research regarding physiology, insulation materials, case studies and manufacturing was conducted. Data analysis was completed with the research and ideation and full-size prototypes were delivered for ready-to-use scenarios. Details such as aesthetics, waterproofing, user feedback and the thermal equation were taken into account to produce ENIX.
