GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- A new company based in West Michigan has developed a special glove for those suffering from a unique condition.

Vanessa Gore, co-founder and chief communications officer for Team Soletics, helped create the heated glove for those with Raynaud's Disease, a disorder that affects the body's arteries.

The glove has added features like individual heating zones for each finger and automatic temperature control.

Team Soletics is in the process of developing this product through the emerge Xcelerate program, an early-stage business accelerator in West Michigan.
