Pain Study

Summary:

Two hours - control group subjects continued to feel worse or the same. 56% of treatment group felt significant improvement. Significance is .003.

24 hours - 25% of control had some improvement. 63% of treatment group had significant   improvement.

Three days - 30% of control group had slight improvement. 88% of treatment group had moderate to great improvement.

Seven days - 33% of control group subjects had again slight improvement. 91% of Goode Wraps treatment group subjects had great to total improvement. Significance is .004.


METHODOLOGY
A group of 32 injury victims were selected from two locations. One a pain clinic where the injuries ranged from sports trauma to falls, and two "old injuries acting up." The other location was an athletic training center at a large Western University during basketball, volleyball, and track seasons. The injuries involved were strains, sprains, and trauma from falls, etc. There were no broken bones or deep cuts.

The subjects were randomly assigned to two groups, red or blue. All subjects were required to sign a consent form in order to join the study, however, neither the subject nor the trainer/nurse/physician knew whether red or blue was experimental or control. Each subject was asked—and agreed—not to ingest any type of analgesic or other pain medication nor obtain any other methods of treatment for their injury while participating in this study.
Results - the perceived levels of pain were calculated by subtracting the perceived level at each reporting time from the original perception:

� Thirty minutes - all control group subjects felt worse or no change. 31% of the treatment groups felt somewhat better. Significance of .024.

� Two hours - control group subjects continued to feel worse or the same. 56% of treatment group felt significant improvement. Significance is .003.

� 24 hours - 25% of control had some improvement. 63% of treatment group had significant improvement.

� Three days - 30% of control group had slight improvement. 88% of treatment group had moderate to great improvement.

� Seven days - 33% of control group subjects had again slight improvement. 91% of treatment group subjects had great to total improvement. Significance is .004.

Anti-Inflammatory Study

SUMMARY:
These data indicate that Goode Wraps are an active topical anti-inflammatory agent when impregnated with rare-earth semiconductors on cloth or tape.

METHODOLOGY
The researchers studied the anti-inflammatory action of the semiconductors on mice ears. The test was made with croton oil solution. In one test, the comparatives were no treatment, hydrocortisone, plain ink, ink with 375, 400 and 500 jg/ear. The other test used the tape pads.

Semiconductors when formulated as ink has anti-inflammatory activity. Approximately 500 jg/ear and 400 jg/ear of semiconductors has comparable anti-inflammatory activity to 200 jg of hydrocortisone. Approximately 375 jg/ear of semiconductors had very little activity at 6 hrs., indicating that the concentration of semiconductors is very critical and a small decrease in concentration can result in a change from high anti-inflammatory activity to almost not anti-inflammatory activity.

The same test was made using our semiconductors impregnated tape pads. The results were the same. These data indicate that semiconductors are an active topical anti-inflammatory agent when impregnated on cloth or tape.

Muscle Relaxation Study

 

SUMMARY:

Once these standards were developed, the same procedures were followed only a Goode Wraps massage cone was applied to the belly of the muscles. The results show that massage cone quickly allows the muscle to move to full flexibility.

METHODOLOGY:
The research has proven to be more difficult than anticipated primarily because there has never been any research, at least documented, concerning how muscles relax or why muscles become more flexible.

The research was performed on mice. Basically they measured the flexibility that would occur over a 20 minute period by moving the mouse leg back and forth during this time period. Numerous tests were performed at three different frequencies to establish the control. The charts show how the muscle resistance decreases over time. In other words, warming up your muscles moves them to maximum flexibility.

Once these standards were developed, the same procedures were followed only a massage cone was applied to the belly of the muscles. The results show that our product quickly allows the muscle to move to full flexibility.

In another test, the muscles were at full flexibility and then our product was applied. In these tests nothing happened.

The next stage of the study will be 1) To record nervous activity in dorsal roots of the spinal cord during static and dynamic stretch, and 2) To determine static and dynamic muscle stiffness with or without topical application following cutting of dorsal roots.

We have no idea how, or if, this muscle relaxation relates to the pain relieve or the anti-inflammatory action noted in the other studies. However, it is possible injury could be prevented if muscles were relaxed by wearing our product.

Improve Athletic Performance

Summary:
Two primary observations were made of athletes wearing Goode Wraps compression shorts compared to placebo shorts. One involved a standing vertical jump and the other place kicking a football. Two motor tasks, vertical jumping and kicking, with two different varsity athletes were investigated.

  • The vertical jump results showed average jump height, vertical take-off velocity and vertical push-off impulse to be greater in the Goode Wraps jumps.
  • The kicking results showed that maximum ball velocity, knee joint angular velocity, and thigh and shank angular velocities at contact were larger in the Goode Wraps kicks.

METHODOLOGY:
Two primary observations were made of athletes wearing Goode Wraps compared to placebo wraps. One involved a standing vertical jump and the other place kicking a football. Two motorComp_Shorts1.gif (29872 bytes) tasks, vertical jumping and kicking, with two different athletes were investigated.

A NAC 400 High Speed Video Recording System was utilized to record ten kicks and jumps. In addition, the vertical jump was measured with a Kistler force plate. Each was tested 5 times with/and without the semiconductor imbedded wraps. The results for both were digitized utilizing an Ariel Performance Analysis System (ASPAS)..

The vertical jump results showed average jump height, vertical take-off velocity and vertical push-off impulse to be greater in the semiconductor jumps. Comparison of the best semiconductor and best control jumps revealed larger vertical impulse—resulting in larger vertical take-off velocity and jump height for the semiconductor jump. The kicking results showed that maximum ball velocity, knee joint angular velocity, and thigh and shank angular velocities at contact were larger in the semiconductor kicks.

Paired t-test, however, showed that the differences between the two conditions were not statistically significant (p<.05). although no significant performance improvement was found, trends in the data suggest that external application of semiconductors may have a positive effect on motor performance. it is recommended that a larger study be undertaken to further illuminate the subject.

Pilot Study for Delayed Onset Syndrome in Quadriceps  

Effects of Goode Wraps on Peak Muscle Torque and Integrated EMG Activity

Summary:

After 24-48 hours, the subjects rated intensity of soreness on a scale from 0-10.  The authors' preliminary reports supported the effectiveness of Goode Wraps in reduction of muscle pain compared to the placebo group.

Results: 

Enweneka et al. (1997) conducted a pilot study with five subjects to determine the effects of Goode Wraps on the performance of normal and sore quadriceps muscle groups.  One portion of the study measured the pain experience in this muscle group related to muscle soreness resulting from overuse.  The researchers applied cones and identical placebo with adhesive patches to these muscles.    Induction of muscle soreness in the dominant leg occurred by stepping up on an aerobic step that was 110% of the lower leg length while carrying an additional load of 10-15% of body weight.  The procedure was repeated for up to 10 minutes or until the subjects were unable/unwilling to continue exercising.  After 24-48 hours, the subjects rated intensity of soreness on a scale from 0-10.  The authors' preliminary reports supported the effectiveness of Goode Wraps in reduction of muscle pain compared to the placebo group.
