Proven Technology

Protonics patented resistance technology has been backed by over 20 clinical studies and endorsed by some of the top sports performance professionals and clinicians in the world!  
Studies have clearly identified a prevalent, but not optimal biomechanical (movement) strategy in the right side dominant human population.  This movement strategy encompasses the entire musculoskeletal system and can affect people to varying degrees.  Protonics was designed to restore and promote optimal biomechanics.  
A Biomechanical Explanation
Core stability is an extremely common term among sports medicine and sports conditioning professionals.  Accepted kinesiology include five muscular groups as the primary stabilizers of the core; the abdominals, the back muscles, the quadratus lumborum, the psoas, and the muscles that connect the pelvis with the legs.
The last group of muscles, until recently, have not been thought of as part of a core strengthening program.  The emphasis for years has been on just the strength of the abdominals and back extensor muscles.  Now, over the last decade, the discussion has moved more to the role of hamstring activation in maintaining proper joint alignment and muscle length.
Most people don’t think of the hamstrings as "core stabilizing muscles”, but actually they are the longest and could be considered the most influential core stability muscles we have.  Unfortunately, many individuals are always trying to keep these muscles stretched out when they are already hyper-extended.  The hamstrings need to be short and tight enough to be able to oppose (counteract) all the muscles that have anterior rotation force or leverage on the pelvis, specifically the back extensors and the hip flexors, which tend to be very strong on most individuals.  To accomplish this,  the hamstrings must activate properly during function to oppose excessive anterior translation force of the tibia (the lower leg) which has huge implications for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) integrity.
Protonics was designed to optimize biomechanical balance and reduce right-side dominance by functionally requiring key hamstring muscles on the left side of the body to activate properly prior to activity.  By reinforcing the correct muscle firing pattern, the individual can perform in a balanced state even after removal of the Protonics System.  This allows the individual to maximize the amount of available strength, speed, and agility, while helping prevent more problematic symptoms and injuries.
