Compression Sports Support
Pain during and after sport
At BodyHelix , we have been involved in sport all our lives. We know what it means to play with a strained hamstring, a bad knee or tennis elbow.
We have experienced pain both during and after sporting activity!
That is why we have consulted with some of the finest sports medical people in the world to develop an alternative solution for injury and recovery management.
We have incorporated the latest technological advances in fabric science to create products that stretch more than the human body. Our unique designs also are contoured to each specific problem area, and the products are anchored in place with moisture activation.
The result: each Helix maintains uniform compression across the entire affected area.
Why Uniform Compression?
The compression range is scientifically recognized to increase blood flow on our focused areas of support.
Our products are designed to stretch with you and that compression range stays uniform with your body movement.
For example, with the the Patella Helix, when you flex your leg the patella is supported but does not aggravate the tendons near the knee.
With no uniform compression the fabric would ram the patella into the tendons, providing no comfort or support.
Ever worn something like that? We have!
How Does This All Work Together ?
The unique closed cell (latex free) rubber allows tiny air cells to exist within the material but it does not absorb moisture like a sponge.
This gives it the spring and flex that gives you total freedom of movement. When the human body dissipates heat, it creates a thin layer of moisture on the skin, i.e. sweat!
The moisture causes the Helix to adhere to your skin. As a result of this and the form fit technology the BodyHelix doesn't slip! Joint compression provides support for the ligaments and tendons reducing stress and pain on the specific area.
Muscle compression increases blood flow, which in turn can delay the onset of fatigue during performance and aid recovery after performance.
Why Are We Passionate About BodyHelix?
It made no sense to us to treat a problem area with a product that had restrictive movement with no or misdirected compression.
We know you will benefit from the products our Science Medics have developed as much as we have.
