The New England Patriots have a new thertopat valve in the works that will prevent the team from using it on game days.
The new therto valve is similar to the one used by the Chicago Bears, which was approved for use on home games in April.
The Patriots have been using it since Week 3 of last season.
The Patriots said in a statement that the thermostat valve is designed to reduce “heat-related injuries and other injuries to the head and neck.”
The team plans to begin using the new thermoregulator on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, and will likely use it during the regular season.
The team has not announced when the thertopats will be installed.
