The sliding effect has been tested through various product development and laboratory studies. Product development test has shown that fifteen volunteers did not sustain any injuries when simulated various inversion movements with Spraino and a moderate weightbearing load. Laboratory data shows that the moments involved in the rescue situation – where the Spraino rescues the player in an injury situation by stabilizing the players foot – is reduced with more than 80% of the moments experienced under the control conditions without rescue/sliding.

 

None of the players have sustained a lateral distortions of the type Spraino prevents during our development program comprising of players from three basketball teams and various players within handball, basketball and dancing.
