= Substantial Increase in Risk of Arm Injury

THE REAL DEAL IN

The Real Feel

To minimize the risk of injury, it is CRITICAL to identity and reduce any compensation patterns an athlete has during repetitive actions.

The American Sports Institute states that:

Regardless of arm slot, the shoulder abduction angle should be about 90 degrees. In other words, the throwing elbow should be approximately on the shoulder-to-shoulder line at the instant of ball release. Having the elbow far below or far above the shoulder line is dangerous for the tendons and ligaments in the shoulder joint.

Reducing Injury

90 degree angle & upper arm in line with shoulders = Reduced risk of injury

2" Hole in Landing Area

Causes the pitcher to raise his release point by about 3.5 inches, which creates a greater than 90 degree angle and takes his upper arm out of alignment with the shoulders.
Increases the risk of injury

2" Hole at Rubber

Causes the pitcher to contract his release point by about 3.5 inches, which creates a less than 90 degree angle and takes his upper arm out of alignment with the shoulders.
Increases the risk of injury

RFP MOUNDS ELIMINATE MOUND-TO-MOUND INCONSISTENCIES THAT LEAD TO INCREASE RISK OF ARM INJURY

Practice mounds, bullpen mounds, and game mounds all use the same mound core.  Thus, they are all consistent! They all have the same slope; they all have the same height; and they all are incredibly easy to maintain (no holes).  Best of all, they will always be that way due to our patented design.

PATENTED DESIGN

Our patented mounds have a modular design; making them easy to setup, tear-down, and move.  Our mounds will always stay true to spec allowing pitchers to work on their mechanics without first having to adapt to the inaccuracies and variances of most other mounds.  Wear Spikes. Pitch with Confidence.
