Colorado Storm has been conducting an ACL Research Study through the University of Denver with the 03 Girls ECNL team, in which they have been wearing the T:25 Knee from CEP Topical Gear. The purpose of these wearables is to enhance performance by increasing speed and vertical jump and reduce the risk of injury such as hamstring strains and ACL tears. This is accomplished by the T:25 pads, which applies topical pressure to train the medial quadriceps and hamstring muscles. You wear them for 1.5 hours per day, during motion, for 10 days. Continue to wear 1.5 hours every other day, during training or practice, for the next 6 weeks, or as desired. Colorado Storm and the Research Team at the University of Denver are very excited to examine data in how the T:25 Knee are making a difference in training and preventative measures.
CEP Topical Gear also has many other products such as the compression socks. I am encouraging all athletes, especially athletes/teams that travel many times throughout the year to purchase the 2.0 Run Socks, which are full length compression socks. The progressive compression technology, which has been scientifically proven to increase circulation by up to 40%, helps you feel lighter on your feet and less fatigued no matter the distance.
Unparalleled Wearability The socks mold to your feet like a second-skin, giving you a superior shoe fit with guaranteed blister prevention and wearing comfort.
Stay Cool Built in air-conditioning allows air to flow through the ribbed pattern on the front of the shin. Air will hit moisture that has been pulled from the surface of your skin and reduce skin temperature up-to 6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Goodbye Shin Splints CEP's high-tech compression fibers provide maximum support and stability, which helps prevent micro tears in the connective tissues that cause shin splints.
I would highly recommend compression socks for recovery after practices and games, especially when having to travel long distance via plane and the change in pressure. They will help prevent pooling of the lower extremity due to lactic acid build up as well as fluid retention and increase circulation for maximum recovery.
