What is Acticel?

Acticel™ is a high-performance orthopedic material that provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.

Acticel™ High-Performance Fabric

The comfort problem with orthopedic supports

Traditional Neoprene supports provide excellent compression, but are non-breathable so they prevent heat and sweat from escaping. This causes over-heating and excessive sweat build-up, making them very uncomfortable to wear for more then a short period of time.

While having advantages over traditional non-breathable Neoprene in certain circumstances, “Breathable” supports provide minimal therapeutic heat benefit because of their uncontolled heat loss. This causes condensation of sweat, which cools the skin. At higher levels of activity, the support will eventually become soaking wet and very uncomfortable. There is also a significant reduction in the compressive and elastic qualities of the material.

What are the benefits of Acticel™?

Acticel™ creates a perfect therapeutic microclimate between your skin and the support by maintaining optimum therapeutic temperature and low moisture (sweat) at any level of physical activity.

This patented technology is why Therion orthopedic supports can be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without sweat build-up.

How does Acticel™ work?

Acticel™ uses a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers, each with a tiny hole at the top to replicate the way the leaves of a plant transpire (lose water vapor).

While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny holes at a controlled rate. The chambers flex and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small holes. This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside.

The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user's level of physical activity. This ensures that body heat, blood flow and compression remain consistent during a wide range of activities.

What is the science behind Acticel™?

Acticel™ technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion where heat will always move from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature; and water vapor will tend to move from an area of higher density to an area of lower density in order to regain equilibrium.

The unique design of the Acticel™ vapor chamber provides the required air space for excess perspiration to evaporate and collect as vapor. This creates the necessary conditions to establish a steep diffusion gradient at the tiny hole on top of the chamber, allowing maximum removal of vapor, while minimizing therapeutic heat loss.

Quick Overview

  • Maximum relief for more severe wrist pain, carpal tunnel, arthritis and tendinitis
  • Powerful magnetic fields help speed healing and recovery from injury
  • Reduces inflammation, restores flexibility
  • Acticel™ has you covered - Exceptional support and comfort at any level of activity. Wear as long as you want, without overheating and without perspiration build-up
  • Fully adjustable, can be worn on right or left wrist

Experience relief from pains, tingling, and numbness – symptoms often associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

You need powerful magnetic fields to achieve wrist pain relief – especially for chronic and more severe wrist pain. The Platinum magnetic wrist support does exactly this, using 6 maximum strength 13,800 gauss neodymium and 4,300 gauss ceramic magnets placed around the wrist and hand to penetrate through the entire wrist.

The strong magnetic fields help reduce inflammation, restore flexibility, and speed recovery, especially after a sprain or injury.

The Platinum magnetic wrist support is made with patented Acticel™ high-performance fabric. Acticel™ provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.

Acticel™ technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of physical activity, allowing the support to be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without perspiration build-up.

The tension strap is adjustable for optimum compression. That means you’ll experience extra support when you’re flexing or moving your wrist. Universal size fits both left and right wrist.

 

Please note: Not everyone can use magnets. There are a few restrictions.
