In closing the sponsor pool of Amorotto Trail 2016, also the famous firm BV Sport will be partner!
BV SPORT PATENT
BV SPORT CONCEPT
The venous physiology
Blood in human beings is distributed by arteries which provide muscles with oxygen, and by veins which eliminate toxins. During intense effort, cardiac output can increase by 5 to 6 times and the blood capacity of muscles can increase by up to 20 times the normal amount.
Human beings have the principal heart and 2 peripheral hearts which are located on the calves. The blood inside the calf is so far from heart and lungs that its flow upwards is very difficult.
While playing sport, whether competitively or recreationally, and while carrying out work which involves walking, sitting or standing for long periods of time, the calf acts like a quickly absorbing sponge. At the end of the day, the calf is full of toxins and is dilated. This results is a venous dilation, and an increase of blood pressure causing poor muscle oxygenation, heaviness, fatigue, leg cramps and a weaker performance. If these conditions occur repeatedly, a fragility of muscle fibres on the calf will follow, along with a major risk of injuries.The application of specific andgraduated calf support during sporting activity enables better elimination of waste matter and toxins.
BV SPORT ADVANTAGES
BV SPORT Progressive compression patent. The BV SPORT compression effect will act on the main venous reserve of the CALF, which is a true muscular and vascular sponge.The pressures adapted to the CALF allow the efficiency of the peripheral heart (the calf) at any movement.It helps a quicker elimination of the venous blood bad oxygenated and full of toxins (lactic acid, free radicals, CO2…).
BV SPORT Progressive compression patent.The SUPPORT effect (or aponeurosis), thanks to a graduated pressure on the calf, enables a better oxygenation and improve the muscle performance during the physical effort.
A NEW SUPPORT COMPRESSION SUPPORT
Validation by eco dopller ultrasound
For the high level athlete, it is possible to calculate precisely the support force to apply, using a technique protected by an international invention patent. The device used is a pressure cuff with an acoustic window. Doppler ultrasound (a non-invasive technique) allows us to measure the pressure of the veins, in particular in the muscles of the calf.
Validation by morphological, dynamic and functional MRI and by CT venography
The picture resulting from the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance confirmed the beneficial effects of BV SPORT on the veins of legs and the need of a strong pressure on the calf in order to obtain an effective size reduction of veins and to increase the venous flow.Several Centres (Saint Etienne, Zurich, London) participated in the testing of these Nuclear Magnetic Resonances during the stages of lying, standing and sitting.The results have been presented during the World Congress of Angiology in May 2000 and the French Day of Radiology in October 2001, and were published later on.
