"The most important findings of the present study were that FR was beneficial in attenuating muscle soreness while improving vertical jump height, muscle activation, and passive and dynamic ROM in comparison with control."

"In conclusion, an acute bout of SMR of the quadriceps was an effective treatment to acutely enhance knee joint ROM without a concomitant deficit in muscle performance."

"Our results support the use of a foam roller in combination with a static-stretching protocol. If time allows and maximal gains in hip-flexion ROM are desired, foam rolling the hamstrings muscle group before static stretching would be appropriate in noninjured subjects who have less than 90° of hamstring ROM."

"These results indicate that SMR using a foam roller reduces arterial stiffness and improves vascular endothelial function."

"Foam rolling effectively reduced DOMS and associated decrements in most dynamic performance measures."

"In the study, Rivet and Pronko found that the VYPER system, which combines auto-massage and vibration, is a major asset in muscle relaxation."
- Schroeder et al. 2015: Is Self Myofascial Release an Effective Preexercise and Recovery Strategy? A Literature Review. Current Sports Medicine Reports 14(3):2 00-208.
"SMR appears to have a positive effect on range of motion and soreness/fatigue following exercise."

"FR, SS and FR+SS all lead to acute increases in flexibility and FR+SS appears to have an additive effect in comparison with FR alone. All three interventions (FR, SS and FR+SS) have time courses that lasted less than 10 minutes."
