Aang Ku then tried to emulate this process but found no success.
“I tried and it burned my hand, I knew I was missing something.”
During one of the holidays Aang Ku decided to visit his hometown. When he was back in Lake Inle he experimented further.
“What I found was mind blowing! The stone found in Inle Lake has special properties. It’s minerals allow it to sustain certain temperatures for a long time.”
“When heated fully, they go up to exactly 116.45 Fahrenheit and no more, no wonder I have never burnt my hand as they can’t overheat.”
When Aang Ku got back to the United States he cooperated with Dr. Peter Dorrell, a famous Orthopaedic from his research team to create his breakthrough findings.
“116.45 Fahrenheit is the perfect temperature for muscles to relax, anything higher would burn the skin and anything lower would lose its effect.”
“This temperature is apparent in traditional Japanese hot springs…”
“That are known to carry healing properties bringing vitality to the body.”
Because of the Intha stones being too heavy, they couldn’t bring them back, so they tried other ways to emulate its temperature retention capability, after many years of research finally they succeeded in producing a blanket that covers the whole back.
