The Space Blanket is based on technology pioneered by NASA to prevent hypothermia. It is a lightweight, durable, and versatile blanket. Space Blankets reflect infrared light emitted from the body, keeping the body warmer by helping to prevent heat loss.
This is a great combination when using with infrared mats. When used with infrared mats, not only is the body's infrared relected back to the user, but also infrared emitted from the mat. This makes a more intense session on the infrared mat.
Our Space Blanks are hospital-grade. They use a special silver material coating and are lined with a soft, blue, patient-friendly inner surface.
Hospitals report that this Space Blanket:
- Improved patient outcomes
- Reduced surgical site infections (SSIs)
- Shorter hospital stays
- Reduced healthcare costs
- Povided more patient comfort
This Space Blanket is so trusted, it has become a part of the U.S. Military's Hypothermia Prevention Protocol.
The Space Blanket has proven effective in a variety of applications, including healthcare, EMS and survival gear.
Additional Therapeutic Considerations:
- Nonconductive (electrically safe in an operating room)
- Radio-translucent (does not obstruct X-rays)
- Safe in conjunction with laser surgery
- Meets "CFR Part 1610, Standard for Flammability of Clothing Textiles"
For trauma patients, or for any patient that has, or may have, the potential for a decrease in core temperature, it is a must...We use it for trauma, long outside exposure, blood loss...We have had excellent results...We would recommend it very highly for anyone..."

They are very light weight, warms the body very fast. In fact, they warm the body faster than a fleece blanket.
Keep one in your vehicle for emergencies.
We love our Space Blankets, and you will, too.
