Nexus is ideal for sport, even professional or extreme. For that reason, the company has been collaborating with sports doctors, teams and professional athletes for years. Wearing Nexus fabric improves performance and recovery times, whether you are a professional or an amateur. Wellness available for anyone wearing Nexus. Why do without?

EFFECTS OF NEXUS ON A CYCLIST'S PERFORMANCE

Laboratory/Author:
Dr Carlo Giammattei, Dr Enrico Orsoni - Department of Sports medicine and traumatology of Lucca

Description:
Two tests carried out within one week of each other on two homogeneous groups of athletes, one wearing Nexus, the other normal sportswear.

Result:
Improved performance “Analysing results you can see how Nexus clothing ..., improves maximum performance ... as we have an increase in maximum, average and threshold power during the test.”

EFFECTS OF NEXUS FABRIC ON HYDRATION, ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND ON DOMS
(DELAYED MUSCLE PAIN) IN A CYCLIST

Laboratory/Author:
Dr Carlo Giammattei, Dr Enrico Orsoni - Department of Sports medicine and traumatology of Lucca

Description:
Athletes training were asked

  • Not to have their usual draining massages
  • To wear Nexus clothing all the time, in training and races (sportswear) and when resting, as underwear

Result:
Better hydration and less DOMS “In this study we have proved that wearing Nexus textiles - for 7 days continuously [...] hydrates cells better, causes less delayed muscle pain and, with a suitable recovery period, improves athletic performance.”

ACUTE EFFECTS OF NEXUS - ON PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Laboratory/Author:
M. Levi Micheli, E. Castellini, C. Pipia, M. Marella - FIGC Training Methodology and Applied Biomechanics Laboratory - FIGC Sports Trainer

Description:
This survey was to understand whether, wearing Nexus - for a short period (hours) you have benefits in physical performance terms. They selected a sample [...] where two identical training sessions were done within a few days of each other, wearing Nexus once and a placebo fabric the next.

Result:
Less fatigue. Several indicators show objectively less fatigue:

  • Savings of intra cellular water
  • A less consistent decrease in strength tests carried out under fatigue conditions
  • A drop in the heart rate average
  • A subjective assessment of lower physical commitment (with Borg 1-10 scale)

EFFECTS ON PERFORMANCE IN GIRLS PLAYING BASKETBALL WEARING NEXUS

Laboratory/Author:
Dr Carlo Giammattei, Dr Enrico Orsoni - Department of Sports medicine and traumatology of Lucca

Description: Two groups of athletes were monitored for two consecutive training sessions. The athletes were subjected to the same type of identical training in both duration (90 minutes) and intensity.

Result:
Greater hydration and recovery "Based on data collected we can suppose [...] how Nexus garments act increasing muscular capillarization and cellular metabolism, improving it and enabling better contraction of muscle cells and greater oxygenation of the cells themselves reflecting on an increase in the athletes' capacity to work."

EFFECTS OF NEXUS - ON A FOOTBALLER'S

Laboratory/Author
M. Levi Micheli, E. Castellini, C. Pipia, M. Marella - FIGC Training Methodology and Applied Biomechanics Laboratory - FIGC Sports Trainer

Description:
Preliminary comparative analysis against traditional clothing of the effects of Nexus textiles in chronic situations in a team of semi-professional footballers.

Result:
Drop in the fatty mass and increase in muscle mass "During the observation period, Nexus textiles, presumably increasing exchanges at tissue level hence guaranteeing a greater flow of oxygen and improved removal of metabolic waste, contribute to decreasing fatty mass and to an increase in muscle mass.”

INFLUENCE OF THE PHOTO-IONISING SYSTEM ON PERFORMANCE

Laboratory/Author:
University of Turin - Inter-faculty university School in Motor Sciences (decree thesis) FIGC Sports Trainer

Description:
Preliminary comparative analysis against traditional clothing of the effects of Nexus textiles in chronic situations in a team of semi-professional footballers.

Result:
“We can state that the NEXUS fabric has important effects on: recovery, anaerobic threshold, maximum strength in excellent conditions, maximum strength in fatigue conditions, maximum running speed.”
