INJURY STUDIES

 

In the last five years, two studies have been conducted on the speed of recovery from wearing Incrediwear sleeves. The first study was conducted by USC Division of Biokinesiology & Physical Therapy in 2016 on the Real Salt Lake soccer club. The second was conducted in 2019 on the FC Cologne soccer club. Both studies focused on the effectiveness of wearing Incrediwear sleeves to reduce time-loss for professional athletes.

 


The 25 team players were instructed to wear Incrediwear braces and sleeves through the duration of the season. With injury, players would wear a sleeve on the affected area. Sleeves were also used during sleep, travel days, and before, during and after training sessions. In comparing the 2018 and 2019 seasons, FC Cologne found that the sleeves contributed to faster absorption of swelling and pain improvement in acute injuries. Players noted the high quality of comfort benefits of the sleeves and braces, with little to no restriction in their training performance.
