Warming up before a competition to improve muscle elasticity and joint mobility is an essential component significantly affecting the performance of an athlete. However, not only sufficient warming up, but also maintaining the body warm should be ensured before a competition. WOOLGALAXY® products (elastic warming massage belts and bandages with camel or alpaca wool) allow athletes to warm up and increase the temperature in those muscle groups and joints that are particularly important for competitive performance.
The warming up of muscles and joints increases the overall performance of the body by strengthening the vegetative functions. An increase in body temperature, mainly in the muscles, is of great importance for improving performance, especially during fast movements. Furthermore, the performance of skeletal muscles is increased, degradation products, especially lactic acid, are completely oxidized, the performance of the muscles is increased, and their fatigue reduced. At the same time, the increase in body temperature ensures faster metabolic processes and increasing oxygen consumption with higher utilization.
All the above-mentioned conditions to produce unique elastic fabrics (patent pending) allow us to sew our exclusive products: elastic warming bands and bandages (for knee joints, elbow joints, lower legs, wrists, ankles, shoulder joints) with fine massage effect made of camel or alpaca wool. The interaction of a special combination of fibers in terms of length, fineness and type of wool guarantees optimal warming and massage effect.
Research providing substantiation of the efficiency of the products “WOOLGALAXY® Curative tubular woolen bandages” for sports.
Tеsting a WOOLGALAXY® knee guard.
The aim of the study was to compare the data of local temperature in the knee joint area protected with a knee guard (area A) and that of the similar area of the contralateral knee joint (area B). The study procedure comprised registration of the NEC thermal imager before the knee guard application, after 30 minutes of the knee guard wearing and 20 minutes after removal of the knee guard.
After performing the study, the resulting thermograms of both knee joints gave a stable temperature difference:
On the following day, a new study was carried out with a more complicated algorithm (while the knee guard was put on, the tested person was performing symmetric cyclic exercises comprising flexion and extension of the knee joints, as well as with the increase of axial load onto both knee joints, including squatting for 5 minutes.
After performing the study, 30 minutes later, a uniform local temperature growth of 3 degrees was observed at the area A and that of 1 degree centigrade at the contralateral area B.
15 minutes after removing the knee guard from, a temperature growth conservation was observed (of 3 degrees) in the area A, while at the area B, a non-uniform local temperature decrease was observed (by no less than 1 degree centigrade).
Considering the above data, one can come to a conclusion about a real efficiency of the use of the products “WOOLGALAXY® Curative tubular bandages” at the training stage of sportsmen.
