Last summer UC Davis conducted a field study to determine “The performance and perceptual benefits of sustained cooling while cycling in the heat.
The results of the study have been submitted for publication and the abstract will be in the June issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise [MSSE], the flagship journal of the American College of Sports Medicine. Additionally on May 28, 2015 UC Davis made a “poster presentation” on the study findings.
Key results and conclusions from the study include:
1. Statistically significant reductions in the level of fatigue using a cooling system.
2. Lower levels of thirst
3. Lower levels of perceived heat index
4. Evidence of less dehydration using an external source of water to effect evaporative cooling
