Thermaband focuses on hot flash help

Amy Martinez | 5/26/2021

Two years ago, Debbie Dickinson, a Harvard-educated lawyer and mother of four, began experiencing hot flashes due to perimenopause, the time leading up to menopause.

To relieve her symptoms, Dickinson used an array of ice packs, wraps and fans, all of which worked well enough until she visited her daughter Markea, who was a Yale MBA student Dickinson realize that what she really needed was a portable, technology-driven solution to hot flashes, she says.

Markea tapped into expertise available at Yale, and mother and daughter launched Thermaband, a Miami-based digital health venture focused on menopausal women, chemotherapy patients and others struggling with body temperature control.
