The name of the concept the inventor has chosen is SS HotSpot, although she is open to the possibility of a name change and reserves final approval regarding the official name. Branding is important, of course, but the concept is the official foundation for the invention and any forthcoming applications of the invention.

 The concept Ms. Lunde Mr. Johnson have envisioned is innovative, thin and flexible “heating” units that can be placed, with adhesive or within pre-designed pockets, to provide warmth to areas of the body, which are especially vulnerable to being cold. It is designed specifically to provide heat for the body’s core, including the bottom, the back and the front and backs of one’s legs. A further, more detailed explanation of the functionality of this invention will be elaborated upon in the following segment.

3111-3d-2Ms. Lunde and Mr. Johnson have been designing and documenting this concept for quite some time. They have several “mock-up” drawings of the invention, which have provided the inventors with a sense of how the concept will appear once brought into production.  This is beneficial for making any necessary modifications and revisions for improvements; thus promoting a more satisfactory and overall accommodating product.

As currently designed in the technical drawings and 3-D models, the invention has unique features not presently available in the marketplace.  Although the system has not yet been engineered and is still in the 3-D developmental stages, an explanation of possible functionality is as follows:

As currently designed in the technical drawings and 3-D models, the invention has unique features not presently available in the marketplace. Although the system has not yet been engineered and is still in the 3-D developmental stages, an explanation of possible functionality is as follows: SS HotSpot is designed to provide heat for places on person’s body, which are particularly vulnerable to getting cold when the person is outdoors during freezing weather. These thin heating pads can be secured to the inside of an existing article of clothing with an adhesive backing. They will be available in specialized shapes to fit flat against one’s bottom, to fit across one’s back and wrapping round the ribcage towards the front of one’s body, and to fit into the tops of a person’s legs, front and back. Jackets, bottoms and one-piece suits will be designed with strategically-placed pockets for inserting these heating units. There would be two pockets on the front covering the chest, one pocket in the front of each upper leg and one on the back of each upper leg, as well as one across the bottom, so a heating unit can be inserted to keep the bottom warm when a person is seated. The adhesive-backed pieces will be available in bright, primary colors, as well as fun prints, like camo and animals. The jackets and one-piece suits, with specially placed pockets for inserting SS HotSpots, would be available in variety of sizes, colors and prints to appeal to consumers of all ages.

The unique features of this invention will provide the following benefits for consumers everywhere:

  • A convenient way to keep vulnerable parts of the body warm when a person must be outdoor during cold weather

  • Will provide warmth and comfort for everyone, while enjoying outdoor activities and while working outdoors

  • Will keep people warm and safe, by protecting them from cold during an emergency situation

  • All products will be very flexible while being worn, and will not hinder a person’s movement in any way

  • Can be worn under waterproof clothing, like underwater rescue dive suits, to keep emergency personnel warmer; no more dumping hot water down a suit to remain warm

  • Will be worn by our Military men and women, hunters, fishermen, hikers, campers and those watching/participating in outdoor sporting events to stay warm while seated as well as in motion. The SS HotSpot will provide hours of continuous warmth and safety!
