Deborah Bails of Malvern, Iowa was out walking one morning when she nearly suffered a heat stroke.
“I am an avid walker and one morning temperatures reached 80 degrees by 8 a.m.,” Bails said. “I was not prepared. The cap I had on did not allow the heat to escape and I suffered heat exhaustion. I was very close to heat stroke.”
Bails’ experience inspired her to invent a headgear that would provide ventilation and cooling.
Visor Cooling Cap is a common cap with a sweatband lining that has a cooling crystal locked within the band. The invention will be featured at InventHelp’s INPEX invention trade show in Pittsburgh, Penn. June 19-21.
The show exhibits new products and innovations that are available to business and industries to manufacture, license or distribute. The show will include INPEX Inventors University, a series of seminars, presentations, and panel discussions to provide information that inventors may find useful in pursuing their ideas. Reichart Von Wolfsheild and Scotty Ziegler of History Channel’s “Invention USA,” will be the keynote speakers this year.
