The underlying mechanisms and function of joint stabilizers

...working towards a comprehensive understanding

Joint stabilizers (JS), such as braces, bandages, compression garment, taping and corsets, are commonly applied in clinical and sports settings. It is believed that JS's enhance proprioception by stimulating cutaneous receptors and by pressuring the underlying musculoskeletal structures. However, it still remains unknown if and how JS's enhance proprioception, stability at various joints amongst athletes, sedentary individuals of both sexes and across all age groups. Thus, this study aimed to generate a comprehensive understanding of the underlying mechanisms and function of various JS amongst different population groups.
