Tube heater

The tube heater reduces condensation in the ventilator tube when the user is out in the cold

A thick piece of fabric is wrapped around the ventilator tube and attached with Velcro.

Authors comments
Condensation forms when the air in the ventilator tube is cold so the user uses a tube heater when she is outdoors.
