|Active Patch 4U - World Series main sponsor|
Active Patch 4U, the new prevention and treatment concept for sport and wellness will be main sponsor of the Skyrunner® World Series, joining prestigious outdoor brand partners, Salomon, Scott, inov-8, Arc’teryx, La Sportiva and Compressport.
So what is Active Patch 4U? It looks like these little patches are creating quite a stir on the international race scene, decorating the bodies of top international runners like colourful tattoos. Kilian Jornet, Emelie Forsberg, Anna Frost, Francois D’Haene, Ryan Sandes are just some of the top names on the Salomon Team sporting the patches, but also top runners Timothy Olson (TNF) and Anton Krupicka (New Balance), have become proud ambassadors.
The patches, composed of a small membrane attached to a rectangular adhesive tape, are designed to stimulate recovery and return energy – just what runners need. The patches offer much more however, and can be used in a number of ways from prevention to performance, applied by an expert, or at home, following the self-help instructions on the website.
Twenty different metal oxides and rare metals are the principal components of the membrane, which work by stimulating specific energy points on or far from the organ to be treated, transmitting information to the cells. Among the areas that can be treated are joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The results are extraordinary, as testified by the athletes that have been using them for some time.
The man behind this innovative product is Frenchman Arnaud Tortel, who, together with the originator of the membrane, Jacques Casper, has patented the product. Tortel, a physiotherapist and Arctic explorer, further developed the patches over a three-year period, working closely with the top athletes to perfect the product before launching it on the market.
From France, where the product originates and is produced, it is spreading steadily to other countries and is now available online in various languages.
