Default Borrowing equipment

If you can't afford to buy a cooling vest or other cooling products contact your MS Society. They will likely have funds to buy equipment for you or they might have equipment they can loan to you.

The best cooling towels I've found are Mission Enduracool sports towels available in many sports outlets in the USA, harder to find here in Canada.

With heat in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, this topic is, well, rather hot. Bumping.

Mouse, I realize this is an old thread, and thank you to Dave for the resurrection, but I'm hoping you might still be interested in this subject.

I used to experience Uhthoff's. For me, it was strictly temperature (read:heat) related, and induced the visual pseudoexacerbation you describe. Yes, cooling vests are expensive. Have you looked in to any organizations in the UK that offer a cooling equipment program? Luckily we have the MSAssociation of America here in the states. Over the years I have received 2 different cooling vests from them, for free.
