The youth version of the Kinetic Arm™ is currently in development and is anticipated to be available to launch by the Summer or Fall of 2022. Subscribe with us to stay up-to-date on new products and future promotions and events.
This athletic gear works by functionally stabilizing and reducing stress on joints during throwing/swinging mechanics. Its unique patented design has embedded MuscleWeb™ Technology, which acts as a flexible external support system that reinforces natural anatomical function, optimizing mechanics without restricting motion. The product has been tested and has proven to significantly reduce arm stress that is the leading cause of most overuse injuries. Click Here for Video
The Kinetic Arm helps optimize mechanics by not letting your arm go into vulnerable positions or dangerous ranges. As you fatigue the arm can tend to lag behind as the body rotates which causes impingement at the shoulder, and more stress on the labrum. The internal components pull in the same direction as your muscles to reinforce an efficient movement pattern.

The internal components are designed to offload the muscular system and connective tissue. This extra added layer of protection absorbs stress that would otherwise be harmful. CLICK HERE for video explanation of how the sleeve offloads stress and can help aid in injury prevention.
No. The Kinetic Arm™ patented design is lightweight and slim to contours to the shape of your torso and arm, so it does not restrict motion or change delivery, and can be easily worn under a practice shirt or jersey. There are adjustable straps so you can adjust how much assistance and support comes from the sleeve in acceleration as well as deceleration by adjusting the tension of the straps. If any restriction is felt, simply loosen the strap.
No. Studies show the sleeve offloads significant amount of stress, but there was no signs of atrophy to the muscle and or active tissue due to the amount of force still required to throw.
The Kinetic Arm™ is designed to stabilize joints while in motion, unlike traditional arm braces designed to immobilize joints and restrict motion. The sleeve offers more protective benefits than traditional compression sleeves, in that athletes can wear it for extra functional support during throwing or swinging mechanics.
The Kinetic Arm™ is designed for all throwing athletes who engage in repetitive throwing and swinging sports. It was originally designed for baseball/softball and football players as a workload management tool to aid in injury prevention. However, the sleeve was quickly adopted by other athletes that engage in throwing and swinging motions such as tennis, golf, lacrosse, javelin, and cricket.
No. The Kinetic Arm™ is designed for throwing athletes, and is currently being used in baseball and softball by all position players, as well as in football by quarterbacks.
Yes. The youth model is in process of production and is scheduled to become available by Summer or Fall in 2022.

Yes. There are no existing rules stating that an elbow or shoulder support system cannot be worn during games. Both collegiate and high school athletes have worn the sleeve under their jersey or shirts during the game. This sleeve is a form of protective gear.
There are instructional videos that will be emailed to you after placing order to give proper instruction on how to wear and adjust the sleeve. How to put on and make fitting adjustments to maximize the benefits of wearing the Kinetic Arm™? Our fitting instruction video is available online on our YouTube channel.
Yes. It is recommended to wear a lightweight shirt or base layer under the Kinetic Arm™ to prevent skin friction. 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 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.
