Step beyond the current limits of physics? All clear ahead! Effektor Running Powershirt. The blood in your arms have a tough road back to your heart – long, against the force of gravity and against the centrifugal force created by your arm movement. The Effektor Running Powershirt therefore not only has performance-enhancing X-Bionic Partial Kompression in the entire upper body, but it also increases the compression applied to the arms. The return of venous blood has an easier time of it, and your cardiovascular system saves energy. You gain even more power with the large 3D-BionicSphere System on the back. It relieves your body’s own need for temperature management.
3D-Bionic Sphere System
Leaves residual moisture on the skin that the body does not interpret as dampness. We have no sensors for sweat. We can only perceive sweat mechanically once drops form and begin to trickle down. Only at that point do we register “wet”. Sweat Traps absorb this moisture before it is felt, drawing it away to be evaporated and disposing of it through thermal dynamics. Only a thin film of moisture remains on the skin. Cooling is of course not possible without moisture.
X-Bionic Partial Kompression
Partial Kompression by X-Bionic utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting to cool. During sports activities, body warmth is created. In extreme situations up to 1,200 watts worth. Up to 90 % of this is released by the athlete from the skin to maintain a body temperate of 37 °C. X-Bionic Partial Kompression applies targeted pressure on 1 mm wide ridges. Left and right of the ridge is a compression-free area where compression could have a negative effect on blood circulation to the skin. In this way, the blood flow through veins and capillaries remain unimpeded. Partial Kompression uses the skin as a surface for cooling and, thus, can take advantage of the body’s personal micro-climate for optimising performance.
Trap perspiration before you start to feel it. Wick perspiration away so it can evaporate using heat dynamics. A film of perspiration – too thin to be noticeable – is left behind to cool the skin.
Effektor Technology recognises neural physiology as an extra boost to performance ability. With X-Bionic Partialkompression it exerts constant targeted pressure on the peripheral neurons and sets up a constant state of fight-or-flight. This constantly activated relationship to the nervous system enables an optimised muscular use and creates decisive performance advantages.
