Rehband is a trusted and loved brand by athletes at all levels, from most sports, in more than 60 countries worldwide. Rehband now launches a new Rx Knee Sleeve in the colour Carbon Black. This knee sleeve is developed together with elite athletes and tier 1 units within military, police and rescue services in order to provide a more discrete and low-profile option.
Background knee sleeves
The knee is one of the most vulnerable areas of the body and requires extra support during heavy or long workouts as well as following an injury. The Rx Knee Sleeve has a patented anatomic construction and provides higher muscle coordination, increased joint stability and reduced energy waste.
Knee sleeves work by providing warmth and compression to the knees. The compression increases the blood flow and the receptive input from the knee, helping an athlete perform more controlled and stable movements. An increased receptive input means that your brain is receiving more information from the part of your body experiencing the compression, making us more aware of how we are using that joint or body part. When using a knee sleeve, you can perform movements better – both in terms of balance, coordination and muscle activation. The warming effect of the knee sleeves helps with increasing blood flow quicker and is effective for keeping knees warm throughout an activity.
The intention with the RX Knee Sleeve Carbon Black is to provide a new colour option, with the black sleeve and a matted black logo on. The product is aimed at customers who wants to be discrete with branding. The Carbon Black Rx Knee Sleeves have been designed and created in collaboration with top athletes, to provide the support that is aligned with the guidelines, rules and regulations of visual appearance in competitions. The anonymity and low profile of the product is providing you with an option regarding regulations of logos at competitions. In addition, the Carbon Black Knee Sleeves has been developed together with tier 1 units to fit with uniform regulations for military, law enforcement and rescue services. Providing a tactical black low-profile option.
Annie Thorisdottir, often referred to as Icelandic Annie, is a CrossFit® Games Champion. She won the CrossFit® Games both in 2011 and 2012, claiming the title of “Fittest Woman on Earth”. First, it was all about winning. Later on, Annie’s goal changed to focusing on coming back from a back injury as a better athlete. It became an important challenge to inspire others that might be going through the same thing and to become better than before because of the set-back, not in spite of them.
”As an athlete, as a human being, you never want to become a hundred per cent again. You want to become
better than you were before, you always strive to become better, faster and stronger.” – Annie Thorisdottir
Annie Thorisdottir and Rehband are both strong supporters of the Functional Fitness Community and the amazing potential that athletes around the globe show through spirit and dedication to the sport. We always strive to become better, faster, and stronger.
