ACTIVE THIGH/GROIN BRACE WITH STRAPS
Thigh muscles injuries
The thigh has three sets of strong muscles: the hamstring muscles in the back of the thigh, the quadriceps muscles in the front, and the adductor muscles on the inside. The quadriceps muscles and hamstring muscles work together to straighten (extend) and bend (flex) the leg. The adductor muscles pull the legs together.
The hamstring and quadriceps muscle groups are particularly at risk for muscle strains because they cross both the hip and knee joints. They are also used for high-speed activities, such as track and field events (running, hurdles, long jump), football, basketball, and soccer.
In English league the athletes injuries are observed my specialists. According that, average recovery time of football player after semitendinosus and semimembranosus injury is 23 weeks. In sprinters this time is 16 weeks. Improperly treated injuries cause injury relapse even in 30% patients.
Soft tissues injuries of thigh occur in 10-55% all of the sport injuries. We know following injuries f soft tissues: enthesopathy, bruising, pull, strain or rupture. Enthesopathy based on stress, microinjuries or pull.
Above injuries can be result of:
1. contact contusion (bruising) where soft tissues, blood vessels and bones are injured,
3. Concentric contractions,
4. Eccentric contraction,
5. Isometric contraction,
6. Sudden stopping move
7. Passive extension
Typical hamstring injury during sprint occurs when muscles go from eccentric contraction into concentric (knee flexion in 30o). According to researchers, 69-80% hamstring injuries relate to the biceps femoris.
Thigh/groin brace AS-U-01 protects leg against the injury. Pull of the muscles is very painful.
Our AS-U-01 thigh sleeve is anatomic-shaped brace with orthopaedic stays and polyamide buckles. There are elastic, easy to attach, circumferential straps with Velcro fasteners. Trial Compressive System allows to adjust the level of compression in different thigh areas according to condition and needs.
Our thigh/groin brace is made of PowerFit.
This is 3-layered textile that fits to body precisely making ‘the second skin’ and can be stretched in all directions. External layer is made of spandex that provides excellent compression and it’s resistant to the dirt and damage and reduces muscle vibrations. Internal layer is soft and skin-friendly. The innovative construction of PowerFit allows to maintain cool joint even in hot temperature and it heats it in winter. The braces made of PowerFit are the most innovative devices on the orthopaedic market and almost invisible for patient.
Anatomic-shape of the sleeve allows to use it for right and left leg.
Purpose of use
- muscle pull
- strain and rapture of soft tissues
- stressed thigh muscles
- pain in the groin area during activity
