Compex , Leaders in Electronic Muscle Stimulators, Sponsors the Jelly Belly Cycling Team Presented by Kenda

The sport team will be incorporating the Compex neuromuscular electrical stimulation device to their training regimen.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- Compex® Electronic Muscle Stimulators recently announced its sponsorship of the Jelly Belly Cycling Team presented by Kenda– a US Continental pro men’s cycling team which competes at National Race Calendar events and select UCI races overseas. The team is known for their colorful jersey and the sport performance jelly beans Sport Beans® by Jelly Belly Candy Company.

DJO, the worldwide leader in the research, design and manufacturing of Neuromuscular Electrical Muscle Stimulation (NMES) technology through its Compex® brand of products, is the first U.S. company to offer consumers a FDA-cleared, over-the-counter, portable muscle stimulator for enhanced sports performance and improved physical fitness, which is used by professional sports teams and athletic training coaches worldwide.

“Compex and the Jelly Belly Cycling Team presented by Kenda have a great synergy – we’re excited that the Team has incorporated Neuromuscular Electrical Muscle Stimulation (NMES) technology into its 2010 training regimen. Compex can help the cyclists achieve the highest level of performance possible,” said Greg Houlgate, Director of Sales and Marketing for Compex.

NMES enables users and sport participants to exercise more muscle fibers in less time by reproducing the body’s natural process of voluntary muscle contractions with high-intensity “optimal” electrical impulses. Numerous clinical studies conducted over 20 years in sport participants have proven that when Compex is applied to the motor nerve, it provokes a deeper and more complete muscle contraction than what can be attained through standard voluntary training or activity.
The Team is pleased to join the ranks of elite athletes worldwide who have embraced this technology, said Danny Van Haute, Team Director Jelly Belly presented by Kenda. “Compex will help the team achieve a more efficient workout regimen and will also help them recover quicker after a strenuous training session or race.”

After training with neuromuscular electrical stimulation, athletes can expect progression in their overall strength, power and speed, as well as a quicker muscle recovery after training. In addition to enhanced muscle performance, athletes can also expect to experience improvements in their circulation and faster reduction in lactic acid blood flow.

Compex will feature an Active Recovery Zone at many of the expos where the Jelly Belly Cycling Team presented bv Kenda will race this year. For more information visit
