Design for Personal Cooling Garment

The objectives of this project to analyze existing products in the proposed categories and create a better designed product by eliminating the gaps found during phases 1 & 2 of the research. Development of a new prototype and testing it in order to confirm functionality, thermal comfort and aesthetics. The final stage of this project is to analyze prototype field testing data and implement modifications and improvements. Identifying and examining gaps in garments designed for cooling purposes in different clothing categories. Anticipated research outcome is the creation and testing of improved design of a garment for personal cooling that will help with thermoregulation.
