Scientific validation studies have proven that many musculoskeletal disorders are responding to simple preventative and curative techniques aimed at improving the quality of body movement.
Research on Opedix sports knee support technology conducted at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, CO, found that wearing the tights during running significantly reduced painfully destructive, peak compressive knee pressures. Additionally, professional skiers from well-known ski resorts reported dramatically reduced quadriceps muscle fatigue, knee pain and stiffness as well as improved muscular recovery while skiing. Data from these studies suggests that athletes can perform longer and reduce the risk of joint pain and injury when wearing Opedix KNEE-Tec tights.
“The science of compression tights has evolved from simply squeezing the muscles to serving as a conduit for the delivery of anatomically directed tensions to the body. The Opedix line of KNEE-Tec tights have a scientific tensioning system. This advanced design kinetically activates the legs, via a form fitting compression layer of fabric, for improved internal knee and hip joint functions during physical activities. These improvements lead to better movement quality and kinetic health; and have applications for exercise, training, recovery and athletic performance enhancement,” said Dr. Decker.
KNEE-Tec sports knee support tights are sold at selected retailers and online at Opedix.com. For more information on kinetic health, visit http://blog.opedix.com.
