Researchers at Purdue University have developed an efficient thermoelectric, wearable body heating and cooling system device. Whereas an electric heater only allows for heating, this thermoelectric heat pump provides hot and cold therapy with a higher efficiency. Furthermore, the thermoelectric generator can be operated by rechargeable battery(s) and can be used over several hours. Additionally, this technology can be used in a jacket or a vest in extreme weather conditions by soldiers, first responders, and others working outdoors.
