The LP EmbioZ Shoulder Support Compression Top (Long Sleeves) features a Power System that runs along the center of your trunk, shoulders, upper arms and forearms. The Power System is core to the benefits offered by this Compression Top:
- It improves the efficiency of the kinetic chain that starts at the torso and extends through the shoulders and along the upper and lower arms. As a result, you will experience increased explosive power in performing activities that rely on torso rotation or similar movements. Such movements would include swinging, striking or throwing.
- It acts on the surface of the skin, using your skin’s natural elasticity to slide and recoil against the underlying muscles to allow freshly oxygenated blood to more quickly return to those muscles. It also improves your lymphatic circulation and accelerates the removal of metabolic waste from muscles. The net result is reduced muscle fatigue and improved staying power. To understand this type of action in more detail, please refer to our post explaining how kinesiology tape works.
- The Power System applies general compression to the upper body to reinforce the blood and lymphatic circulation benefits described above. The result is a further reduction in muscular fatigue during those long workouts.
- It also improves the proprioception of the upper body. This means that its ability to instinctively sense and prevent unnatural movements that could cause harm will be enhanced. The result is less risk of injury even when performing complicated movements during intense physical activity.
The Comfort System of the support wicks away perspiration and ensures adequate ventilation of your body. As a result, its temperature remains in a safe range. Together, these properties increase your comfort level during prolonged and intense physical activity.
The seamless design of the LP EmbioZ Shoulder Support Compression Top (Long Sleeves) further improves your comfort level. Despite its high compression, you will not experience marks, welts or other damage to your skin after wearing this support for extended periods.
Tip – for best results, please ensure that you position the 3D Weaved Channel under the chest.
