Vibration Therapy is all the rage in athletic recovery. Its use has expanded well beyond the physical therapist’s office and onto sidelines and into gyms and dugouts all over the world. And now one of the best vibration therapy wearables from Myovolt is on sale at Touch of Modern.
All the Myotech wearables are slashed right now; most, like the shoulder, back, and knee wraps, are $90. But the elbow sleeve is just $80. That’s about $40 off the retail price.
The New Zealand-based company made a splash at CES in 2017, and in two short years is now among the industry leaders. Myovolt delivers localized vibration therapy to muscles, ligaments, and joints through a wearable format that is easy and practical to use.
Myovolt is a hands-free technology that feels soft and comfortable against the body and does not restrict movement or activity. The module is held against any part of the body so that treatment can be applied exactly where it’s needed. You don’t have to lie against a wall or floor to get the treatment into the right spot. You can use Myovolt whenever and wherever it suits you.
The benefits of Vibration Therapy for the human body are well known and supported by a wide body of research in sports science and medical fields. These include increasing circulation, boosting muscle power, relaxing muscles or ligaments and reducing pain. Research clearly supports the benefits of vibration therapy, particularly as it applies to athletic and workout recovery.
What Is Vibration Therapy?
Whole Body Vibration, which involves standing on a machine with an oscillating platform, was used in the 1960’s by astronauts on their return from space to improve bone density, reduce the risk of fractures, and enhance muscle strength. This technique is used today by sports physiologists, in particular to improve muscle performance in athletes.
Localized Vibration Therapy (LVT) is an associated technique where vibration can be targeted at a specific area of the body or muscle group. It is typically applied using hand held vibrating tools to massage, enhance circulation, and stimulate blood flow. LVT acts similarly to stretching, so it can be a good option for warming up before, and relaxing the muscles after, training.
