T:25 Technology

Changing the way athletes and patients are cared for.  

Topical Gear patented technology applies 25mmHg to muscles or ligaments with T:25 pads incorporated into our products to enhance proprioception and neuromuscular communication, reducing risk of injury and enhancing performance.

Agonist and antagonist muscles work together to create bodily movement.

  • Agonist Muscles– can cause movement to occur through their own contractions. Also called “prime movers”, because they are the muscles considered primarily responsible for generating a specific movement.
  • Antagonist Muscles– oppose a specific movement. Controls a motion, slows it down and returns the limb to its initial position.

The T:25 Knee, Vlosity and Pro Taco products are all designed to apply topical pressure on an agonist and antagonist muscle to optimize movement.

T:25 Knee

  • By applying T:25 pads to the medial quadriceps and medial hamstring (agonist and antagonist), proprioception and neuromuscular communication are enhanced, causing the femur to be externally rotated improving knee alignment.

  • Thin and light– only 2 oz.
  • Easy to apply and remove
  • Indications: post-op ACL reconstruction, patella femoral and patella tendonitis issues and Osgood-Schlatter disease
  • Use: Wear 1.5 hours/day for 10 days in motion. Then 1.5 hours/every other day for 6 weeks in motion. After initial training of the key muscles are complete, this can be worn as desired.

The Pro Taco

By applying two T:25 pads to the peroneal longus and brevis, behind the lateral malleolus and a T:25 pad to the anterior tibialis on the medial posterior side of the malleolus (agonist and antagonist muscles), we enhance neuromuscular communication.

Another T:25 pad is placed on the lateral side of the foot, applying topical pressure to the ATFL and CFL to enhance proprioception.

  • 50% lighter and less bulky than an ankle brace
  • Easy to apply and remove
  • Allows for full range of motion
  • Indications: apply post injury or post-op
  • Use: Wear 1.5 hours/day for 10 days in motion. Continue to wear if anticipated for a minimum of 1.5 hours/every other day for 6 weeks. Then as desired.

–If an individual has been wearing a brace or tape for more than four months, transition into wearing the Pro Taco over 7 to 14 days.

The Vlosity

The Vlosity contains a self-adjusting tensioning system that draws the upper torso back, training the rhomboid and trapezius muscles to enhance posture.

When this occurs, the scapula moves into a posterior tilt, allowing the humeral head to move more freely, improving mechanics of the shoulder.

  • Zips on and off
  • Breathable and lightweight
  • Self-adjusting tensioning system
  • Ability to quantify progress
  • Indications: post injury or post-op shoulder, cervical, thoracic or lumbar.
  • Use: Wear 1 hour/every other day for 14 days while not in motion, reading, on the computer etc . Then wear 1.5/14 days and as desired afterwards.
  • The Vlosity should fit firm against the body.
