Game Ready, created by CoolSystems, was born out of a revolutionary idea-that spacesuit technology can treat athletic injuries. As a designer for NASA and inductee into the US Space Foundation's Hall of Fame, our founder Bill Elkins helped pioneer the technology involved in controlling temperature and pressure within a flexible garment. In 1998, Elkins began working with athletes, athletic trainers, and doctors to expand his discoveries into the realm of sports medicine. The positive feedback associated with Game Ready' first Game Ready prototypes was overwhelming. Sprains, strains, and bruises healed better and faster. Post-operative patients recovered more quickly. And our patented cooling system helped reduce the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Many top athletes-including Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Troy Aikman, Bruce Smith, Warren Moon, and Jack Kemp-liked the system so much they became part owners in our company.
