DonJoy Performance would like to welcome 2X US National Lacrosse Team Member Kyle Harrison to the team. Harrison, who plays midfield for the Ohio Machine, will be using DonJoy Performance bracing and compression products for injury prevention, performance enhancement and recovery throughout the 2016 season, all designed to keep athletes in the game and playing their best.
A life-long lacrosse player, Harrison’s highly successful lacrosse career began at the age of 4, following in his father’s footsteps. Harrison played for John Hopkins University where he was recognized as a 3X All American, 2X Midfielder of the Year, 3x Tewaaraton Award Finalist and helped carry the team to the 2005 National Championship win. His professional career kicked off as the 1st Overall Pick in the MLL draft and he has since been named a 6X MLL All Star, a US Lacrosse Baltimore Hall of Fame Member and is a 2X US National Team Member.
“We are thrilled to be working with one of the top lacrosse athletes in the country, and we look forward to helping Kyle extend his career for many more years. It is an honor and true testament to our products that Kyle has chosen DonJoy Performance to stay in the game and to give him the confidence to play at his highest level. Our products help athletes of all levels and all ages play their hardest by offering industry-leading support at the consumer level,” said Toby Bost, president DJO Consumer.
As Harrison looks to extend his lacrosse career, his focus has become on injury prevention and proper recovery. Having suffered a quadriceps tear earlier in his career, he is no stranger to the importance of proper rehab and support. Harrison relies on the TRIZONE ankle and knee sleeves to give him confidence to push his body during daily workouts and games. As part of his overall conditioning and recovery program, Harrison also uses the Compex USA Wireless device, a brand within DJO’s leading portfolio of sports medicine products, on a daily basis.
“Since I started wearing the DonJoy Performance TRIZONE braces, I’m more confident than ever about my ability to take my training and game to the next level without reinjuring myself. Proper recovery has become critical to my success and Compex USA Wireless makes it easy for me to speed up the process,” says Harrison.
