The LP EmbioZ Calf Compression Sleeve features a Power Band around the calf muscles that simulates the action of kinesiology tape by causing the skin to move against the underlying muscles as you perform your regular movements. By using the forces of pressure, elasticity and recoil, the Band accelerates the infusion of freshly oxygenated blood to the calves. It also promotes the removal of lymphatic fluid and metabolic waste from the area. These actions cause your muscles to remain fresh for longer periods. That in turn increases the period during which you can mainatin high levels of athletic performance.
This action is reinforced by the general compression that the sleeve provides to the calf. Compression will further accelerate the replenishment of fresh blood to the calves. It also speeds the removal of lymphatic fluids and metabolic waste from them. This helps you maintain high energy levels and fresh muscles for even longer. To gain an even deeper understanding of how the Power Band simulates the actions of kinesiology tape, please read our post on how this tape works.
Additionally, during physical exercise, the Power Band uses the sensory receptors of the skin to stabilize and stimulate your muscles. This improves prioproception which in turn increases your body’s ability to instinctively sense and avoid unnatural movements that may cause harm. The stabilization and stimulation of your muscles also increase and strengthen contractions of muscle fibers. This increases the explosive power of your muscles.
The net result of the above actions is a sleeve that increases your energy levels, improves your ability to perform actions involving the calf muscle (sprinting, running, kicking, jumping) and reduces your risk of injury.
