The LP EmbioZ Elbow Compression Sleeve will enhance your sports performance using seamless compression technology allied to the LP EmbioZ Power System.
What is the Power System in the LP EmbioZ Elbow Compression Sleeve?
The Power System uses the same concepts on which kinesiology tape is based to promote the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid through the elbow area. As with kinesiology tape, the Power System uses the siding movement of the skin against underlying muscles as normal movements are performed to improve the flow of fresh blood into the targeted area (the elbow in this case) and the removal of metabolic waste from it. You can read more about this in our post on how Kinesio tape works.
The Power System also applied compression to the elbow area. As we have described in our post on Graduated Compression Technology, the effect of this is also to accelerate the replenishment of oxygen rich blood to the area and reduce muscle fatigue.
The two features described above (simulation of kinesiology tape and compression) both help you to maintain higher energy levels for longer and to keep performing at a high level. They also reduce the risk of injuries like muscle strains.
The Power System also increases elbow stability and improves elbow joint proprioception. Additionally, it improves the accuracy of elbow motions. Finally, it improves the kinetic chain of elbow flexion and/or extension allowing for more effortless power. This accumulates energy and enhances performance of sports related activities like throwing, bowling, smashing or striking.
For Which Sports Is The LP EmbioZ Elbow Compression Sleeve Best Suited?
These would be sports in which the actions of throwing, striking, bowling or smashing are critical. The sleeve would also be helpful in sports that involve extensive and/or repeated elbow flexion and extension. Examples of such sports would be:
- Track & Field (e.g. Javelin or Discus Throwing)
