1. COMPRESSION WORKS
Research shows a drastic decrease in pain sensation when compression is applied to injuries. Additionally, compression is a key component of the RICE method, which has been an effective method for treating injuries for over forty years.
Compression treatment of the supporting muscles and tendons eases the burden on the injured tissue. In addition, it's been scientifically proven that increased blood flow and reduced fatigue occur with the use of compression products. A Helix consists of comfortable, uniform, medical-grade compression in the range of 20-30 millimeters of mercury (or mmHg in the scientific community.) The higher the number, the more pressure we feel.
Now that you know compression is effective for pain management, it's important to know that not all compression is created equal. Body Helix compression is different and here's how...
2. BODY HELIX STRETCHES UP TO 300%
Many of our competitor’s products will only stretch up to 50%, which often restricts joint movement while being active. Body Helix compression sleeves are made of the highest quality compression material available and will stretch more than the human body. What this means for you is simple: you won’t need to alter your mechanics of motion when you serve, swing, bend, or run. You can continue to play your game, your way, without limits.
3. A HELIX WON'T SLIP
You’ve seen the person at the gym or on the court stop to pull up their knee sleeve or adjust their thigh wrap. That won’t happen with a Helix. Thanks to our fabric’s Moisture Activated Adherence, our sleeves utilize the heat/sweat from your body and allow the fabric to act like an adherent between your skin and the product. It won’t slip or move during activities.
4. EVERY HELIX IS MACHINE WASHABLE
Because a Helix features Closed-Cell Fabric Science technology, it won’t hold sweat or water and you’ll never have to worry about odors or health issues from trapped bacteria. The benefit to that closed-cell technology is also a bonus because you this means you can safely machine wash and dry your Helix after every use. It won't affect the longevity of the sleeve/wrap.
