Knowing that one-in-ten college female athletes and one-in-a-hundred high school female athletes will suffer an ACL injury demands our attention.
New Haven, CT (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
Aspaeris, a new company that provides injury-prevention compression sportswear for female athletes, donates $5,400 retail value of their Aspaeris Pivot Shorts (APS™) to Kohl’s Cares for Kids Sports Injury Prevention hospital partners, including the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children of Orlando, FL. These sports medicine programs were chosen for their focused ACL injury research and community outreach work.
“We are excited to place APS in the hands of these highly recognized programs that work with ACL injury prevention and rehabilitation. Knowing that one-in-ten college female athletes and one-in-a-hundred high school female athletes will suffer an ACL injury demands our attention. Athletic trainers finally have a tool to aid them in the fight,” said Chris Fuentes, CEO of Samara Innovations, Inc.
Each hospital’s sports medicine department will be given 30 pairs of APS™ to use in their community outreach programs and for their department research. Aspaeris hopes that information on how APS™ affects recovery, reoccurrence and prevention of ACL injuries will help athletic trainers use APS™ in the most effective manner. Prior 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.
Founded by Samara Innovations, Inc in 2010, Aspaeris is a female-centric sportswear company that strives to protect athletes from injury and enhance their performance with advanced compression apparel. The Aspaeris Pivot Short (APS™) was created to help prevent non-impact ACL injuries in high-performance female athletes. APS™ is a unique compression short that has two layers. The outer short is a high performance compression short designed to support muscles. The inner short uses patent-pending technology called Dual Sensory Compression Bands™ to help guide the athlete into proper position while she pivots and runs. Aspaeris sponsors the NoACLHurt blog which features stories on recently injured or recovering female athletes.
