EARLY-WARNING SYSTEM HELPS PREVENT HEAT STROKE IN ATHLETES

alert-aptchMore than 300 people die each year from exposure to heat, and heat stroke is the third leading cause of death for high school athletes.

Athletes may find the new “Body Temperature Alert Patch,” handy. It’s a single-use patch that changes from black to yellow if the person is in danger of over-heating.

You’ll see the Alert Patch, from ionX, in 550 retail outlets, such as Sports Authority, starting in mid-to-late June. More info at ionxalert.com.
