Frequently Asked


Why Thermaband?

Thermaband’s mission is to reframe midlife and empower women to control their thermal comfort through the Zone device. Rather than accepting hot flashes as a new way of life, and suffering in silence as strong women tend to do, Debbie partnered with her daughter to revolutionize how society deals with menopause. This smart personal thermostat provides heating and cooling sensations, as well as digital health data, and was co-created with a robust community of women. Believing that women deserve a natural, effective and desirable solution designed by women for women and their families, they created it.
