During 2019 the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) Forensic Services Team trialled the Feel the Warmth heat belts. Our Scene Examination staff, who work outwith the office, used the heat belts and noticed that they were able to work outside more comfortably for longer periods of time particularly maintaining heat in their hands and feet. Staff reported generally felt better at the end of a shift with less stress on their body as a result of not feeling cold. On the strength of this trial SPA Forensic Service purchased heat belts for all scene attending staff.

It wasn’t as though I felt any direct heat emanating from the Feel the Warmth belt at any point, it was more that I realised at the end of a very cold day in the mountains on my bike that hadn’t at any point experienced that deep down cold you get when you stop and start all the time. My temperature had been regulated very subtly which is exactly what you want from a product like this.

I had the chance to be fitted with a Heat Belt and within minutes felt the gentle, comforting warm that the small unobtrusive battery provided. I was amazed at the radiating warmth that the belt enabled throughout my body. And with a full battery on the low setting (and that was all I needed) it will cost me 16p per day. That's going to make a big dent in my heating bills since I'll be turning it down a notch or two. I should explain, I have a very challenging condition called Reynauds. Check it out on google; you find out that it means painful, very cold extremities that are prone to ulcers which can lead to amputation in severe cases. This product is a revolutionary advance for the care of people with this condition, Systemic Sclerosis (which I also have), Fibromyalgia, MS and the frail and elderly, many more; Hill Walkers, Sailors, RNLI volunteers..........the list is endless.

My back was playing up while on holiday but the heated belt really helped, used up both batteries while out for a few of the days then charged them up overnight. Next job is to adapt the 12v charger to work on the bike.
