Table 1 Comparisons between the unloaded (SJ) and loaded (MPP JS) vertical jumps and 20- and 70-m sprint performances in the placebo and compression conditions

From: Effects of compression clothing on speed–power performance of elite Paralympic sprinters: a pilot study

  Placebo Compression Effect size (90 % CI) Qualitative inference
SJ (cm) 39.49 ± 5.75 41.19 ± 5.09 0.26 (0.01; 0.52) Possibly
MPP JS (W) 484.06 ± 158.20 474.24 ± 147.70 −0.06 (−0.18; 0.07) Unclear
20 m sprint (s) 3.24 ± 0.20 3.27 ± 0.11 0.15 (−0.54; 0.83) Unclear
70 m sprint (s) 9.12 ± 0.44 9.07 ± 0.39 −0.10 (−0.42; 0.23) Unclear
  1. CI confidence interval, SJ squat jump, MPP JS mean propulsive power in the jump squat exercise
