Although it is designed to reduce the epidemic of ACL injuries in female athletes, which is about 500 per day, many are reporting that APS aides in recovery and with hip injuries as well.
New Haven, CT (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Aspaeris launches its NoACLHurt Trial by providing the newly released Aspaeris Pivot Short (APS™) to sports medicine professionals and qualifying National Athletic Trainer Association (NATA) members. Trial participants include over twenty premier sports medicine centers, including Cleveland Clinic Healthcare Systems Rehabilitation, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Utah Valley Sports Medicine; as well as athletic trainers at twenty NCAA Division I schools, including Penn State, Columbia, Auburn, Wisconsin, Minnesota State University, Amherst, University of NC, George Mason, University of MD, Western State, and University of CA.
“Feedback from sports medicine professionals via the NoACLHurt Trial will allow Aspaeris to improve future product and continue the fight against sports injuries in female athletes. We are already astounded by the positive response from athletes wearing APS. Although it is designed to reduce the epidemic of ACL injuries in female athletes, which is about 500 per day, many are reporting that APS aides in recovery and with hip injuries as well,” said Chris Fuentes, CEO of Samara Innovations, Inc.
Research shows that, combined with good coaching technique, APS™ may help prevent tears to the anterior cruciate ligament, speed recovery from knee injury, and enhance athletic performance. Coaches and trainers are eager to try the shorts with patent-pending Dual Sensory Compression Bands™ on female runners and girls who participate in pivot sports, such as basketball, lacrosse, and soccer. Select high-risk athletes will be given three pairs of shorts each to wear during practice and games for six weeks. Aspaeris will use the feedback from trial athletes, trainers and physical therapists for further product development.
