A collaborative partnership to investigate the increase usage of compression garments with women collegiate throwing athletes. Project was executed in three phases: (1)survey, (2) body scanning & prototype development, and (3) lab performance testing. Lab performance testing with motion capture indicated there was a significant performance enhancement in the throwing regiment when wearing the postural compression garment when compared to a control garment. This collaborative project produced an improved compression garment with research-backed performance enhancing benefits.
