A glove that works "better than steroids"?

In humans, AVAs are most prevalent as networks in the face, on the soles of the feet and on the palms of your hands ? right where that gypsy predicted you would lose $20 to a fraud. The Rapid Thermal Exchange, or RTX, applies vacuum pressure to the hands. That pressure makes the AVAs expand and draws more blood into them. Once the blood is in cycling through the hand, it?s cooled by water running along the outside of the vacuum glove. That blood then cycles back into the body at a lower temperature, which quickly causes the core temperature of the body to drop. Like a very fast, high-tech ice bath, that lowering of temperature helps athletes get more out of every workout and enables them to perform consistently better over time, showing a performance boost about equal to that of illegal steroids.
