Per Vivo Labs was founded on the idea that simple solutions can be found for complex problems. Drawing on years of experience within the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Mr. Hubbard, the companies founder is intimately familiar with the current method of “random bed sheets submerged in a cooler containing ice,” and developed the RMCS to account for what he says are “…numerous shortcomings.” “We’ve fenestrated the sheets to allow for the release of trapped heat, vacuum sealed sheets in ArcticAqua+, a proprietary, non-toxic, antifreeze solution that allows for sub-freezing storage while maintaining the pliable characteristics necessary for use, and prevented the possibility for molding or cross-contamination that typically lead to recurring maintenance and/or replacement costs. We’ve included specially sized, malleable freezer packs to assist with cooling around high blood flow regions in the groin, underarms, abdomen, and head, and provided simple instruction for use for those that may not be adequately trained with this process; all in a structure small enough to offer a mobile, man-portable, and therefore immediately accessible response.”

Each year thousands of soldiers and athletes fall victim to heat related injuries resulting in permanent disability or death. “There’s just no reason for it,” said the company’s Vice President of Sales, Karl Berling. “With summer just around the corner, our focus is on football programs, first responders, and officer training at Fort Knox associated with the U.S. Army’s Training and Doctrine Command. One more occurrence of heat injury resulting in calamity is too many when there is such a simple solution available.”

Per Vivo Laboratories, Inc., is a Service Disable Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) headquartered in Kingsport, Tennessee. The company is a provider of custom medical trays and kits as well as the Rapid Mechanical Cooling System.
