New Product Prevents Football Injuries; AirArmor is First of its Kind Worn Before Knee Injuries Occur; Photo Available


PHOENIX, Aug. 23 -- The sports medicine experts at ArmorSports believe there’s plenty of truth to the old adage, “The best defense is a good offense.” Their product, AirArmor is the first on the market designed for players to wear before they are injured to prevent damage to the knee and leg.

Key information on the product:

-- The FDA has classified AirArmor as a Class 1 medical device

-- A study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that NCAA players who wore AirArmor saw a 95 percent decrease in the amount of knee and leg injuries occurring on the field

-- AirArmor weighs only 22 ounces and is supported from the waist ensuring it is the least restrictive to the players’ movement and agility while remaining securely in place with no migration

-- AirArmor was designed by an orthopedist with the most common knee injuries in mind: damage to the MCL and ACL

-- College programs at Ohio University, LSU and East Carolina University have recently placed large orders for AirArmor because of the success of the product during team trials (see 30 players wear AirArmor ECU vs. Duke Sept. 3 on CSTV)

“The idea is to keep the players playing harder for longer,” said ArmorSports CEO Michael Austin. “So many careers have ended because of knee and leg injuries, we want to keep that from happening.”

ArmorSports, with its regional headquarters based in Dallas, has revolutionized the sports-medicine industry with the only device specifically designed to prevent knee and leg injuries. AirArmor is proven to reduce knee injuries by 95 percent in NCAA football, and can also be used for hockey, soccer, motocross and skiing.
