How does Incrediwear Work

Incrediwear products increase circulation to reduce inflammation & swelling, relieve pain, restore mobility, and accelerate recovery. Unlike compression products, Incrediwear products do not need to compress to work. Instead, our technology incorporates semiconductor elements (Carbon & Germanium) within our fabric blends. These elements can be found in Group 14 on the periodic table of elements and all contain four valence electrons in their outer shell. These elements react with body heat to release negative ions into the body. The negative ions activate cellular vibrations that increase blood circulation and lymphatic flow. Increasing blood flow and speed facilitates the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the damaged tissue, which optimizes the body’s natural healing process to reduce inflammation & swelling, relieve pain, and accelerate recovery.

The Science of Recovery

Allowing proper recovery time from injuries and between workouts is essential to preventing long-term damage and pain.  Recovery and rest ensure that your body is able to rebuild and repair damages effectively, so it can handle this stimulus better in the future. While many variables contribute to recovery, the supply of nutrients and oxygen to damaged tissue is vital to quick and effective healing.

Process

When an injury occurs, the body’s response to the damage is inflammation. Inflammation is a defense mechanism in the body in which the immune system recognizes damaged cells, irritants, and pathogens. When an injury occurs, the body goes through stages of inflammation. When a tissue injury occurs, the body releases various chemicals (Kinins, Prostaglandin, and Histamine). These chemicals work together to increase vasodilation and permeability of the capillaries. This leads to increase blood flow to the damaged tissue. In response to these chemicals, the body undergoes leukocyte migration, which aids in the healing process by engulfing bacteria and dead cells. This clears the area and enables new cells to grow. Inflammation is often accompanied by edema (swelling), which can inhibit nutrients and oxygen from reaching the damaged cells. Incrediwear stimulates blood and lymphatic flow to flush out the excess swelling, and bring ample nutrients and oxygen to the site of the injury. This allows the body to heal at its optimal rate by eliminating healing barriers.

Recovery for Performance

Recovery is an essential component of any athlete’s success. Allowing adequate recovery time is one of the most important elements of improving performance. When exercising, muscles endure substantial stress, which causes micro-tears in muscle fibers. Recovery and rest ensure that your body is able to rebuild and repair effectively, so it can handle this stimulus better in the future. Over time, our bodies are able to adapt to the magnitude of stress that accompanies athletic lifestyles. If our bodies receive inadequate time to recover, overall performance will gradually decline and the risk of injury increases significantly.

Training over time
Over time, our bodies are able to adapt to the magnitude of stress that accompanies athletic lifestyles. If our bodies receive inadequate time to recover, overall performance will gradually decline and the risk of injury increases significantly.

Incrediwear products promote faster healing, allowing athletes to train harder and longer without the risk of over-training injuries and fatigue. We have shown powerful results in accelerating recovery of various injuries and conditions.

Following a workout or activity, our bodies immediately begin a recovery process in response to the micro-tears sustained during the exercise. During this process, cells begin repairing the damaged tissue and replenishing any lost nutrients. Incrediwear products facilitate oxygenation and nutrient transport, putting the body in an optimal healing state to accelerate muscle recovery and relieve fatigue.

*In a study conducted with 20 elite triathletes, Incrediwear showed a significant reduction in Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness following their workouts.

Recovery from Injury

Incrediwear stimulates blood and lymphatic flow to flush out the excess swelling, and bring ample nutrients and oxygen to the site of the injury. This allows the body to heal at its optimal rate by eliminating healing barriers. Our products have shown powerful results in accelerating recovery of soft-tissue injuries and post-surgical healing.

In a study conducted with USC and a professional soccer team, the effects of Incrediwear products on Time-Loss showed a significant reduction in recovery time for lower extremity injuries. Incrediwear products were scientifically proven to accelerate recovery of soft-tissue injuries by up to 46%.
