During last night’s exhibition vs. Georgetown College, you may have noticed Immanuel Quickley wearing a black wrap around his midsection on the sidelines:

After the game, Quickley told reporters that the wrap wasn’t a brace, it was actually a vibrating heat belt designed to keep players loose while they’re not in the game.

“[UK Basketball trainer] Geoff [Stanton] gave me a little vibrating machine for my back,” Quickley said, assuring reporters he was not injured. “It was just some new technology that he let me try out. It vibrates, heat, all in one, so I put it on while I’m on the bench.”

Hyperice’s Venom Back belt retails for $249 and is used commonly in the NBA. Quickley said Stanton put the belt on him before the game as well, which could help explain his quick start. In the first four minutes of the game, Quickley scored seven points, got a rebound, and made an assist.

Venom belts for everyone?
