Local Medical Professionals Comment on New First Aid Cap for Kids

What are local medical professionals saying about Cool Gel ’n Cap, the first aid cap brought to market by Western New Yorker Timothy Panicali, the company’s president and product co-inventor?

“Cool Gel ’n Cap is a practical, user and kid friendly device which can ease our little patients’ pain from head bumps, headaches or earaches,” said Dr. Robert Schulman, a pediatrician with Forestream Pediatrics in Depew. “The concept is genuinely well thought out and should be a value to parents.”

“The ‘Toby’ Cool Gel ’n Cap is a welcome addition to help our children get the appropriate local care for the lumps and bumps they get day to day,” said Dr. Shawn Cotton of East Aurora Family Practice.
