HeadCoolie™ Adjustable, Reusable Head Wrap Provides Non-Chemical, Non-Prescription Therapeutic Relief for Fever Symptoms and Headaches

HeadCoolie™ Stays Colder Longer; Perfect for a Hot Day Outdoors

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -  American Diversified Medical Corporation, a majority owned subsidiary of ThermaFreeze Products Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TZPC), today unveiled its newest product line, the HeadCoolie™. HeadCoolie™ is a unique reusable adjustable headband designed to provide children and adults, non-chemical, non-prescription therapeutic relief for fever symptoms and headaches of all kinds, including migraines. HeadCoolie™ is used to provide pain relief, but it's also great for keeping cool during hot summer days, while playing sports or watching sports, for a day at the beach, during a road trip, just before bedtime and more. HeadCoolie™ can be worn around the head or on the back of the neck as needed.

Developed in the US by American Diversified Medical Corp. the HeadCoolie™ is comprised of an adjustable neoprene headband with an internal pocket that holds a proprietary lightweight, reusable insert that can be used hot or cold. The HeadCoolie™ is insulated to retain heat or cold longer than a traditional hot or cold pack and its adjustable strap and Velcro closure keep it comfortably in place allowing the wearer to move about freely as they wear it. HeadCoolie™ wraps comfortably around the wearers head and provides a soothing, consistent pressure that gently compresses blood vessels to help relieve the discomfort and pain of fevers and headaches, including migraines.

In a study published by the Archives of Family Medicine, head wraps like the HeadCoolie™, that provide extracranial pressure coupled with heat or cold to treat headaches were shown to alleviate migraine and tension headache pain in 87% of patients. According to the National Headache Foundation, over 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches and of these, 28 million suffer from migraines. About 20% of children and adolescents also have significant headaches.

 "We are pleased and excited to offer this new relief option for the millions of people that suffer tremendous pain and discomfort from chronic and often debilitating headaches on a daily basis," said Holly A. Ruma, of American Diversified Medical Corp. "For many generations placing a cold cloth on the forehead has been a traditional home remedy and means of relieving the pain and discomfort of fevers and headaches for both children and adults," said Ms. Ruma. "The HeadCoolie™ takes the old concept of a cold cloth on your forehead and brings it into the 21st century, by making it more comfortable, more convenient and most importantly more effective than anything else available in the market."

Available now, HeadCoolie™ can be purchased at pediatricians and physician's offices across the country or directly through the company's consumer web site, www.headcoolie.com.
