KYMIRA’s infrared technology is built into the fibres of our fabrics, so that it is locked in and ready when you are. Originally inspired to create wound dressings, the use of our infrared technologies grew to include elite and amateur sporting applications for performance enhancement, injury prevention and recovery. Later this grew to include more medical applications in chronic pain management, treatment of chronic circulatory conditions, and to aid rehabilitation as part of a clinical pathway.

 

Technology Mission

The mission behind our infrared products has always been to develop a range of medical products that helps the wearer and improve lives. To fund this, we built our sportswear brand and reinvest sales into regulatory work and clinical research for medical applications. Even a pair of socks being bought helps us to achieve this mission.

What is KYnergy® Infrared Technology?

Our KYnergy® Infrared embedded fabrics feature specially designed fibres which contain carefully selected natural minerals. These minerals are selected for their ability to absorb otherwise wasted energy from the wearer and surrounding light. The energy is then converted into a targeted region of the infrared light spectrum, which causes an array of positive biological effects. We target a specific area of infrared because of the very specific effects it has to aid, support and enhance human performance and recovery. Unlike other infrared technologies on the market, our technology is locked into the fibres and can never escape until the materials are recycled, the technology is built to last the life cycle of the garment. This means that our technology will never lose its effectiveness and will never fail you.

How KYnergy® Infrared Technology Works

Our Kynergy® Infrared technology absorbs the natural shorter wavelength, higher energy radiation that is given off by our own bodies and elements such as visible light in our natural surroundings, and the minerals in our fibres convert it into infrared light, which is then emitted back into our bodies. For those that would like some atomic physics 101, this conversion occurs as the incoming photon causes exitation of the minerals at an atomic level. This is a less stable state for the atom, so it discharges the energy in the form of infrared light, within our targeted emission spectrum. This infrared will penetrate 4cm into your muscles and cause a peripheral effect of 2-3cm beyond that of the worn KYMIRA product.

How It Works

How It Works

Nitric Oxide Production

When exposed to infrared light, an enzyme in our blood vessels, called Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase is activated. This produces Nitric Oxide, which causes a number of other benefits

Increased Circulation

One of the primary effects of Nitric Oxide is vasodilation. Nitrous Oxide causes our blood vessels to expand, allowing for increased blood flow to and from our cells.

Increased Tissue Oxygen

When the body is exposed to infrared light for a prolonged period of time increases tissue oxygen can be observed. This can help an athlete fuel their muscles, through to accelerate post-operative rehabilitation.

Pain Relief

Nitrous Oxide is involved in the pain relief response that is activated when taking and opiate. Exposure to infrared light has been shown to active this pathway, helping to relieve pain.

Increased Respiration Efficiency

Research has shown that when the body is exposed to infrared, our cells respire more efficiently. Less Oxygen is consumed, for them to do the same amount of work.

Muscle Relaxation

Another affect of Nitrous Oxide is to help relax our muscles. This helps to improve muscle condition over time and could even help with spasticity.

Thermoregulation

Due to the properties of our infrared fabrics, they help the body to stabilise its temperature and thermoregulate better than normal.

Energy Production

Infrared light activates Cytochrome C-Oxidase in our mitochondria, stimulating ATP production and providing more chemical units of energy for our cells.

SPF & Antimicrobial

Our fibres will convert short wave UV – harmful to us – into longer wave UV that is harmful to bacteria. This gives SPF and antimicrobial benefits.

Sports

KYMIRA Sport infrared sportswear is used by Olympic athletes, international sports stars, elite teams and recreational athletes alike, allowing its wearers to exceed performance, enhance recovery, prevent injuries and accelerate rehabilitation; excelling human performance at its best.

Medical

Our infrared technology was originally developed for medical application and we now have a growing range of products to treat and manage the symptoms of medical conditions, assist with rehabilitation from injuries or surgery; and boost overall wellness.

Defense

Our wearable products are a technology platform which reacts and interacts with the human body to optimise it to its full potential. With a wide range of benefits and uses that IR tech provides, there is a number of defence applications, from enhancing physical performance, reducing the effects of DOMS and muscle aches, to effective thermoregulation and in-built SPF35+ to serve in variable climates. Our infrared clothing continues to push the boundaries of what is possible and keep its wearers pushing harder for longer.
