Professor Craig Heller from the Human Biology at Stanford, along Professor Dennis Grahn invented the Core Control Rapid Thermal Exchange Hand Cooler. When your hand goes in the machine, it is vacuum sealed in, allowing the suction to pull warm blood into your hand to be cooled by the ceramic cone that you grip. I just used it last week during a rugby match and it prevented me from cramping.

I’ve also used this, though I can’t really attest to any amazing performance gains I will say that it does help calm the body down (and I haven’t cramped after using it as well).
