Original Thesis Abstract The dangers of cold weather have affected many regions of the world on a daily basis. Past experience has helped adults to prepare and protect themselves for present danger, although children have not gained an understanding of the threats. The goal of the Frostbite Prevention Glove was to create a glove that easily communicated the user’s active body temperature to them while providing a built-in heat source and air-barrier that would provide necessary survival essentials to extend onset time. After a thorough examination of the ailment, treatment and survival techniques, the design began to metamorphose. The various technologies in concert with nature became vital throughout the design process of the glove. With the complexities of frostbite, there was need to create more than one preventative solution for all of the potentially affected muscle groups. The subsequent preventative prototypes were designed to easily integrate into today’s society.
