Calf Cramps

note-from-founder.jpg

Leg cramps — painful involuntary muscle contractions that typically affect the calf, foot or both — are the reason Kangapoda’s founder invented the product. A wide range of persons are prone to calf cramps for a whole host of different reasons.

Painful calf cramps are common during pregnancy, often striking at night during the second and third trimesters. No one really knows why pregnant women get these leg cramps. It's possible that your leg muscles get tired from carrying the extra weight. Or the cramps could be related to swelling from fluid buildup in your legs, a condition known as edema. Others posit that the expansion of the uterus may put pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the leg.

No matter the reason While you can stretch, and hydrate, and eat bananas…allow Kangapoda to remind you that pressure on your feet and toes when you want to be at ease  can help bring these cramps about. This is your special time. Let Kangapoda make your time under the covers awesome.

Athletes Are Prone to Calf Cramps
Athletes are also prone to calf cramps because they are so highly tuned. Muscles need to recover. When the workouts are over, and it is time to rest, relax, and recover, unwanted tension on the feet and toes can help bring about these sudden painful calf cramps.

Middle-Aged People Suffer Night Time Cramps
Nocturnal leg cramps are cramps happen during the night during periods of inactivity when you are off your feet. The contractions come on suddenly and painfully and occur most often in the calf muscles but also in the feet. The spasms may last from several seconds up to several  minutes. There might also be muscle soreness after you walk it off or the cramp goes away. Nocturnal leg cramps are more common in adults over age 50, but they also occur in younger adults and children. Both men and women seem to be equally affected.

Doctors’ and therapists’ advice regarding leg cramps strongly supports Kangapoda’s design:

  • If you lie on your back, make sure that your toes point upwards – placing a pillow on its side at the end of your bed, with the soles of your feet propped up against it may help keep your feet in the right position. 
    • Kangapoda’s ergonomic canopy allows you to lie on your back with your feet comfortably at a right angle.
  • If you lie on your front, hang your feet over the end of the bed – this will keep your feet in a relaxed position and help stop the muscles in your calves from contracting and tensing. 
  • Keep your sheets and blankets loose. 
    • Kangapoda’s patented ergonomic canopy has the looseness built in so the fabric gently drapes your feet rather than having the irritating pressure against your toes. 

 

Kangapoda was invented by an individual prone to calf cramps.
