As opposed to other Raynaud's gloves, which predominantly use nichrome resistive wire, Soletics uses a specialized conductive thermal fabric that heats when current is applied. This fabric approach provides a much more effective and comfortable heat distribution throughout the hand. It also acts as a fail-safe. If some of the fabric is damaged, the glove will still function; whereas damage to gloves using traditional wires would render the entire system useless.

Additionally, sensors are placed strategically inside the glove. These sensors constantly monitor the temperature inside and outside the glove. When a user's body temperature begins to drop below optimal, the sensors inform the glove how much heat is needed and where. This responsive approach allows the Soletics Raynaud's Smart Glove to perform at increased efficiency.
