EMCOOLS was founded in 2005 based on intensive R&D at the University Hospital of Vienna. The company nowadays develops easy and efficient surface cooling pads for therapeutic hypothermia and fever treatment. Thanks to the patented HypoCarbon® technology, the cooling capacity of Flex.Pad™ and Brain.Pad™ is 15 times better than ice without side effects like e.g. skin burns. The systems are applied within minutes and ensure cooling rates of up to 3°C/h in both treatments and can be used in the pre-hospital and in-hospital setting.
