When professional volleyball player Jeff Rodgers founded his new company in 1991 it had only one product on the market: the Knee Pro-Tec patellar tendon strap. Now, Pro-Tec Athletics provides athletes across all sports massage therapy tools and informational guides to target injury recovery.
Recently Pro-Tec has come out with three new products: The Y Roller, Travel Size Roller, and Pre-cut Kinesiology tape. The Y Roller’s Y-shaped ridges provide the user with a dual or single ridge option, which allows for the option of a more targeted aggressive massage or a slightly gentler approach. The roller helps with increased flexibility and promotes myofascial release. The Travel Size Roller with its rounded grip ends allows for trigger-point release that promotes flexibility, and the roller is small enough to fit into most carry-on bags. The Pre-Cut Kinesiology tape provides relief for muscle tightness and most soft tissue injuries. It also promotes circulation and reduces muscle fatigue.
Pro-Tec products are endorsed by various volleyballers including Dax Holdren and Gary Sato.
