Kinetexx Sports was set up specifically to research and develop devices that would speed-up physical rehabilitation. Our key product PFLEXX® is a proven success which helps you rehabilitate and protect you knee muscles.
Les Pape, Managing Director has over 30 years experience in Executive Management & Product Development having headed manufacturing, technical and R&D operations in the UK, Europe and USA.
Les loves golf and was devastated when a knee injury forced him off the fairways. Full fitness was a distant dream as he faced a long and slow recovery. Disappointed and frustrated, he decided to do something about it. That moment was the birth of Kinetexx Sports.
Les started to design and develop devices that could speed-up physical rehabilitation and get people back on their feet faster. Les invited leading experts to develop the technology. Teams of analysts, researchers and academics from the fields of bio-mechanical engineering and sports science at Northumbria University and Newcastle University carried out research projects, feasibility studies and field trials. Beginning with the Pflexx Knee Muscle Activator, physiologists worked with Athletics Clubs, Rugby League, County Cricket and countless other sportspeople to put the Pflexx Knee Muscle Activator to the test.
Meticulous and intensive analysis proved the new device dramatically increases the activity of under-developed muscles around the knee – by up to 30% when walking and up to 400% when running. We are all very proud of the Pflexx evolution. From early designs, to prototypes, to thorough testing and finally the precision-engineered devices that are now available, it has been quite a journey.
Now everyone has access to this life-changing technology. So if you’re recovering from an injury (like Les), want to boost your sports performance, or simply get fitter, Pflexx will help you reach your goals faster.
