Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/11/2014 -- Reports from the health care industry indicate musculoskeletal disorders account for approximately half of all workplace injuries with slight industry specific variations in these figures. Through additional studies, researchers were somewhat surprised to find a comparable rate of such conditions among stay-at-home moms. While methods of reducing these numbers remain a topic of considerable debate, many medical experts endorse proper stretching of muscles, ligaments and tendons as a highly effective preventative measure.
A firm believer in the validity of these claims, J.C. Blake of ATMSAZ began researching products on the market designed to target and protect widely used muscle and connective tissue groups. Though he concluded foam rollers were among the most effective and user friendly devices available, he felt those currently in production fell short in the areas of efficiency and durability. In light of these findings, Blake and his team embarked on a mission to improve upon these aspects. With their efforts now complete, they have released the Vortex Massage Roller.
Blake affirmed, "Among the changes we made were the materials used in manufacture. Most of the products we found were made of EVA foam, so they don't last long and offer very little support. We added a plastic inner core and implemented a rubberized foam covering, creating a longer lasting product that gives much more stability during use and is easy to clean afterward. At 1.5 pounds, it's still light enough to carry easily."
Studies reveal foam rollers aid in lengthening muscles, the tendons connecting them and the ligaments connecting muscle to bone. Gently extending these tissues increases flexibility, which reduces the risk of straining and tearing during strenuous activities. Doing so also improves blood flow, which helps prevent achiness and cramping. These devices also aid in maintaining or restoring muscle alignment for greater mobility.
While the Vortex Massage Roller provides injury prevention benefits, it can also be used in the treatment of existing injuries through physical therapy exercises. The contoured surface featuring helical texture exerts an ideal amount of pressure for releasing tension and soothing sore muscles. Additionally, the same degree of improved circulation found to prevent muscle tightness can aid in the healing process of muscles and connective tissues.
The features of the best foam rollers available provide positive effects in a number of occupations, including construction, manufacturing and health care; furthermore, the Vortex Massage Roller has been found beneficial for those who spend the majority of their time on their feet and those with desk jobs alike. Aside from injury prevention and treatment, this product has also received notoriety as a helpful tool in core body training and as a supplement to yoga and Pilates routines.
Concluded Blake, "Our product is made of the highest quality materials and manufactured according to stringent regulations. Our revolutionary design offers a number of advantages similar products are lacking. This improved construction helps users prepare for a trying day as well as recover from one, regardless of what their lives demand."
