    NASA-Funded Technology Reduces Menopause Symptoms

    The American space agency NASA has a great impact on all aspects of human life. The commercial sector has generally benefited from technology transfers from NASA. As part of its latest effort to improve human life, his space company has funded technology that could help ease the symptoms of menopause.

    On release, said NASA that London company Fifty One Apparel is using its technology to create a line of temperature-regulating clothing for women going through menopause.

    The clothing line, named after the common age at which women begin menopause, uses NASA-funded Outlast technology to maintain their ability to regulate body temperature while maintaining the look and feel of premium fabrics.

    According to a US-based space agency, Fifty One owner Ms. Louise Nicholson discovered that while researching high-tech temperature control products, these products tend to be cooling fabrics that ignore the cold that often follows the heat during menopause.

    Ms Nicholson’s search soon brought her a technology called Outlast.

    From desk chairs to underwear, Outlast has been used in many products. However, Ms Nicholson found that there were no companies using this technology explicitly for menopause. Walero, which uses the material in race car drivers’ clothing, has sold some of its Outlast clothing to menopausal women.

    The Johnson Space Center in Houston, operated by NASA, was looking for ways to improve the insulation of space suit gloves in the 1980s.

    The Center and the Triangle Research and Development Corporation entered into a Small Business Research contract to investigate the use of phase change materials, which maintain a constant temperature as they change from solid to liquid or vice versa.

    The company’s first product line consisted of just a collection of four different styles of shirts, initially sold at parties to customers in the London area.

    However, the business has now evolved to offer online sales of shirts, underwear, and nightwear to customers worldwide.

    Turbans, face masks, and scarves are just a few Fifty One products that use space technology to keep menopausal women cool.
