Under Armour’s new sleepwear line speeds up recovery with infrared technology

No, its not a misprint. Under Armour has released a line of high tech pajamas that are designed to help speed up your recovery.

The fancy garments, which debuted earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, use infrared technology to reduce inflammation and help you sleep better. They were created in collaboration with star NFL quarterback Tom Brady’s wellness brand TB12.

Dubbed the Sleep & Recovery System, it is the first of its kind. The key is the print on the inside of the sleepwear, which uses bioceramic particles to absorb the body’s natural heat and reflect back “Far Infrared.” This helps the body recover faster while promoting better sleep as confirmed by a NIH independent study.

The technology is currently used for therapeutic purposes in lamps and saunas. Apparently, the idea for the garment came from Brady himself some two and a half years ago. The company has been working since then trying to figure out the best way to embed the infrared tech into clothing.

“I firmly believe that sleep and recovery are critical aspects of an effective and holistic training program,” Brady said in a statement regarding the Sleep & Recovery System.

“Proper sleep has helped me get to where I am today as an athlete and it is something that I continue to rely on every day.

The fitted, but not tight and uncomfortable pyjamas come in a variety of colours for both men and women. They cost anywhere between $80 to $100 and are available at UA.com and some Under Armor stores.
