It is supposed to use the IR heat from the body and reflect it back with the ceramics in the fabric to increase circulation and promote healing. It gets hot fast! But its not like sweaty hot, and Ro seems to really enjoy the effects. He gives a lot of releases with it on (chewing, stretching, etc..) which my RMT even has trouble getting sometimes. The reason you are supposed to introduce it slowly is because it can cause pain and swelling in areas with chronic issues, but as they heal this subsides.
What sold me on it is my friends husband who shattered his ankle in December and was in a lot of pain started using the ankle brace. He got almost instant relief and it has sped up his healing a lot. My friend swears by the stuff and has almost everything in the product line.
I don't think we can get the helmet here - which sucks - but I love my Kep :)
