Temperature trials

Study done by: California equine orthopedics

Hypothesis: A germanium impregnated sleeve (Incrediwear) soaked in warm or hot water would result in an increased rate of surface

Discussion: The combination of Germanium (Ge) with warm water (H2O) ostensibly results in an endothermic reaction leading to the absorption of heat from the water phantom or the subject. A similar, but more intense, response was documented in the live horse resulting in an immediate 23F (5C) drop in the surface temperature lasting for over an hour. These results seem to indicate that the live subject, by constantly producing body hear at the same temperature, continues to drive the endothermic reaction for as long as the fabric remained wet.
