Vulkan: Faster Injury Recovery

25 August 2017

The wrist is a small yet complex joint that is held together by lots of little carpal bones, tendons and ligaments to provide stability. If you don't take care of your wrists, you can experience lots of pain, aches and swelling, which can get in the way of living your normal life. Vulkan understand that fast recovery is essential so that you can get back to doing the things you love as soon as possible, which is why we decided to do a little write-up about the company and what they have to offer.

Who Are Vulkan?

Vulkan are a company that are dedicated to injury prevention and fast rehabilitation so that injuries don't get in the way of your daily life. A subsidary company of Patterson Medical, one of the world's leading suppliers of rehabilitation and medical solutions, Vulkan focuses on recovery and support to help athletes and weekend warriors perform at their best, and at very affordable prices.

Heat Retention for Speedy Recovery

Many of Vulkan's products use neoprene material for the most effective and durable support. Neoprene dramatically speeds up the body's natural healing process by keeping injured joints at an elevated temperature, which increases circulation in the area, improves elasticity and encourage pain-free movement. By having the muscles work towards retaining natural body heat, it helps protect against sprains and strains which account for almost two thirds of all injuries. What's more, Vulkan supports are very breathable, with moisture-wicking materials to help keep sweat away from injuries.

Vulkan for Prevention

Even for those who haven't experienced an injury, Vulkan products are great to wear to prevent them from happening in the first place. While the heat-retaining supports are great for speeding up recovery, they are also beneficial for preventing injuries happening, by keeping extra heat around the joint. This is especially great for cold-sensitive or weakened joints.

The Vulkan AirXtend Wrist Support uses Coolmax fabric to allow the skin access to oxygen, while moving perspiration away from the body at the same time. The support immobilises the wrist into a neutral position to prevent injury, while providing optimal comfort and support. It is easy and practical to wear under everyday clothing for protection throughout the day, providing compression and their heat retention to keep injury at bay.
