Title
(EN) PROPRIOCEPTIVE TOPICAL ANKLE GEAR AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) EQUIPEMENT TOPIQUE, PROPRIOCEPTIF POUR CHEVILLE ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is directed to topical ankle gear for enhancing performance and reducing the risk of injury. The topical ankle gear and kits preferably comprise a flexible sleeve and a lateral foot-ankle buttress, Achilles buttresses, and/or an extendable strap. The topical ankle gear of the present invention is designed to be worn during periods of physical activity to reduce injury and to train and strengthen the athletes muscles against injury, advantageously increasing proprioception by stimulating critical sensory and tactile receptors in the foot and ankle.
(FR)
La présente invention porte sur un équipement topique pour cheville qui permet d'améliorer les performances et de réduire le risque de blessure. L'équipement topique pour cheville et les nécessaires comportent, de préférence, un manchon souple et un renfort pied-cheville latéral, des renforts du tendon d'Achille et/ou une bande extensible. L'équipement topique pour cheville selon la présente invention est conçu pour être porté pendant des périodes d'activité physique afin de réduire les blessures et pour entraîner et fortifier les muscles d'athlètes contre des blessures, augmentant avantageusement la proprioception par la stimulation de récepteurs sensoriels et tactiles critiques dans le pied et la cheville.
