Title:
SPORTS TRAINING AND PHYSIOTHERAPY GARMENTS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2020/115122
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A posture and movement training garment (100) comprises at least one elastic element (1-22) arranged to be stretched upon movement of the wearer's trunk and/or at least one of the wearer's limbs away from a predetermined rest or neutral position, thereby to provide the wearer with gentle elastic recoil sufficient to provide the wearer with additional kinaesthetic and/or touch feedback resulting from the movement, substantially without inhibiting the movement. A complementary sports training or physiotherapy garment (300) comprises a fabric base and pockets (50-55) for the reception of weights, the garment further comprising strips of relatively inextensible material (67) forming a network interconnecting the base material within the pockets, in which the majority of the strips run generally longitudinally of the wearer's limbs and torso and form a branched network with bases mainly originating at the wearer's shoulders and/or hips; and wherein the network does not completely encircle the wearer's limbs and torso. The weights may comprise a body (220) formed from an elastomer, in which the body contains an embedded plurality of pieces (216) of a harder, denser material, each piece having a minimum dimension of at least 1.5 mm and in which the individual pieces are movable relative to one another, whereby the body retains its flexibility.
