The NBA uses therapeutic heat packs on sidelines to curb player injuries. Today’s packs lose heat quickly, are unsanitary, and smell. The Milwaukee Bucks set out to redesign these packs to make them more safe, effective, and desirable to use. The team’s final design features a variable-setting temperature controller and is made of nonporous material, which renders it disease and smell resistant.
