Vetenskapen bakom SKINS funktionskläder

SKINS Kompression - Vetenskap

DEN HEMLIGA FORMELN BAKOM SKINS KOMPRESSIONSKLÄDER

Forskningen som används i de olika stegen av SKINS funktionkläders utveckling låter oss ständigt pressa fram gränserna inom teknologi och kompression – vilket bland annat har lett till utvecklandet av Dynamic Gradient Compression som används i SKINS funktionskläders A400-linje.

Mängden publicerad forskning om SKINS funktionalitet är oöverträffad inom den här branschen. Hittills har tio utförda studier om SKINS funktionskläder blivit publicerade i oberoende, granskande medicinska tidskrifter.

Publicerad efterforskning av den här typen har bidragit till att SKINS funktionskläder godkänts och rekommenderas av the Australian Physiotherapy Association, och även kvalificerats för registrering som terapeutiskt hjälpmedel av the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.

Preliminary development of a wearable device for dynamic pressure measurement in garments.

Existing garment pressure measurement devices are predominantly limited to static pressure measurements and not well suited to monitoring dynamic pressure during sports activities. This study illustrates the construction of a wearable dynamic pressure monitoring device (WDPMD) that measures changes in pressure between a subject and garment during activity. Results of accuracy and precision from the study reveal the WDPMD compares favourably to existing static compression devices and was found to be suitable for monitoring changes in pressure dynamically between a subject and garment. The authors conclude the WDPMD had advantages in terms of functional testing, portability, memory, communication and power capacity.
