YOUTH SLEEVE

K2 Youth Sleeves- Ages 6+

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The K1 Sleeve is designed and recommended for athletes who play in high-intensity sports and throw or swing at max-effort. This sleeve is worn mostly by baseball/softball pitchers, javelin throwers, cricket, and quarterbacks. Best for rehabilitation throwing and swinging programs, because it has a multi-adjustable strap system to help customize fit and tension to assist in acceleration and deceleration control.

The K2 Sleeve is designed for people to wear in everyday practice and play - players of all levels who participate in recreational sports or activities. It goes beyond compression with its slim profile and embedded MuscleWeb™ design, and is worn by people who participate in repetitive throwing and swinging sports/activities such as baseball, softball, football, javelin, cricket, racket sports, golf, volleyball, basketball, disc golf, frisbee, and even fishing.

K2 Sleeve is designed for adult and youth players ages 6+. The youth sleeve is engineered to give a layer of arm protection to growing athletes to help improve arm mechanics, consistency, while reducing arm stress that contributes to most arm overuse injuries.

* Athletes do choose to alternate between both sleeves depending on workload, arm condition, and if they are wearing it in practice or game.

This athletic sleeve works by functionally stabilizing the shoulder and elbow to help optimize mechanics and reduce arm stress during throwing/swinging mechanics.  Our dynamic arm stabilizers have an embedded MuscleWeb™ design, that gives an external web of support over joints to help reinforce natural anatomical function, without restricting motion.  These dynamic arm stabilizers have been tested and proven to significantly reduce arm stress that is the leading cause of most overuse injuries.

These dynamic sleeves help optimize mechanics by promoting cleaner arm actions, and not letting your arm go into vulnerable positions or dangerous ranges while throwing and swinging. It helps reinforce and support the shoulder and elbow when the arm is in weakest range. During repeatable arm actions the arm can fatigue and start to lag behind as the body rotates which can cause stress on the elbow and impingement at the shoulder, and more stress on the labrum. The internal components are flexible and pull in the same direction as your muscles to reinforce efficient movement patterns.

The K1 sleeve is engineered with a multi-strap system to customize fit and tension to help promote cleaner arm actions, throwing consistency, accuracy, acceleration and deceleration control. This sleeve has been tested and proven to decrease elbow torque and reduce arm stress up to 30% while throwing. Externally reducing arm stress allows athletes to increase reps and power with less arm fatigue and wear and tear on joints. Giving athletes an opportunity to wear a workload management tool as they build strength and power to increase and sustain velocity. Video Explanation: Explanation: Click Here

The Kinetic Arm™ sleeves are all dynamic arm stabilizers that have our patented MuscleWeb™ design embedded within the sleeve. These internal components have a strategic elastomer web design that overlay joints and help reinforce and stabilize joints while the arm is in weakest range. This external support helps to offload the muscular system and connective tissue during repeatable arm actions. Wearing these stabilizer sleeves gives an added layer of protection to the arm to help absorb stress and tension while throwing and swinging.

No. The Kinetic Arm™ sleeves do not restrict motion or change delivery. These dynamic sleeves are lightweight, flexible, and designed to syncronize with all arm actions. Every sleeve can be adjusted to customize fit and contour to the shape of your torso and arm to be worn over or under clothes or uniform.   If any restriction in range of motion is felt, simply loosen the strap.

K1 Sleeve is great for throwing rehabilitation programs and max effort throwers, because it has a multi-strap system that can be adjusted to give more tension to help with acceleration and or deceleration control.

No. The Kinetic Arm™ sleeves are worn as an arm workload management tool to help reduce arm stress. There are no signs of muscle atrophy in long term use, because of the force generated and required to throw or swing.

The functional benefits go beyond compression, with its embedded patented MuscleWeb™ elastomer design that functionally stabilizes and supports the shoulder and elbow while throwing or swinging to help optimize mechanics and offload arm stress. Kinetic Arm™ sleeves are called dynamic arm stabilizers because this design functinally stabilizes joints while in motion. Unlike traditional arm braces that are designed to immobilize joints and or restrict motion.

The Kinetic Arm™ sleeves are designed for people who participate in repetitive throwing and swinging sports and activities to help maximize performance and minimize arm injury risks.

The K1 Sleeve is recommended for athletes who play in high-intensity sports and throw or swing at max effort. It is also the best option for those who are in rehabilitation throwing/swinging programs. This is because the K1 sleeve has a multi-adjustable strap system to help customize fit and tension to assist in acceperation and deceleration control. It gives the most support and stability to the shoulder and elbow while throwing at high-intensity.

K1 sleeve is worn mostly by baseball/softball pitchers, javelin throwers, quarterbacks, and anyone recovering from pain or injury in the shoulder or elbow.

K2 sleeve is designed for everyday practice and play. It still gives an element of stablility and support to the arm while throwing and swinging, and has a slim profile that can be easily worn under clothes or uniforms in practice or game.

K2 is worn by people who participate in repetitive throwing and swinging sports/activities such as baseball, softball, football, javelin, cricket, racket sports, golf, volleyball, basketball, disc golf, frisbee, and even fishing.

K2 is designed for adult and youth players ages+

It helps to improve arm mechanics, and offload arm stress that contributes to most arm overuse injuries.

The K1 Sleeve is designed and recommended for pitchers to wear as a workload management tool as they train to help offload stress and fatigue as they build and sustain velocity.

The K2 Sleeve is also worn by pitchers as a layer of protection on lighter days, or under uniform in game.

Yes. The K2 BioKinetic Sleeve scales down to ages 6+ .

The K1 and K2 sleeves are used in both youth and teen sports depending on size and throwing/swinging needs.

There are no existing rules in baseball stating that you cannot wear a sleeve underneath uniform. As long as it is a solid color and is not distracting. Rules are at discretion in different sport leagues.

There are instructions provided on box for proper fitting and adjustments. There are also fitting instruction videos available to watch that show how to put on and make fitting adjustments to maximize benefits.

Our K1 fitting instruction video is available online on our YouTube channel.

It is recommended to wear a lightweight shirt or base layer under the Kinetic Arm™ sleeves to prevent skin friction.

However, there have been a lot of athletes who prefer to not wear an undershirt or baselayer under Kinetic Arm™ sleeves.

The Kinetic Arm™ base layer has an ergonomic design to help keep the seams off high abrasion areas, increasing durability and comfort, with thumb access holes to help you keep the base layer in place while putting on or adjusting sleeve.

It is recommended to wear the K1 sleeve while you are engaging in the highest amounts of reps or max-effort during practice or pregame. The data shows that the Kinetic Arm™ can reduce arm elbow stress up to 30% during throwing mechanics. Wearing this sleeve gives an added layer of protection agains the accumulated stress that leads to fraying or tears to the elbow and shoulder.

The K2 Sleeve can be worn in everyday practice, play, and game.
