Thomasian science, after checking out national athletes, has plunged to an unheard of depth—socks.

Burlington Industries Phils., Inc., has asked the Center for Research on Movement Sciences (CRMS) to test its newest line of shock-absorbing socks this month “to establish the scientific bases of the product.”

“(We are coordinating with the CRMS) para malaman ang capacity ng medyas namin at kung tama ba ang pagkakagawa nito, “ Burlington marketing assistant Lala Buenaflor told the Varsitarian.

“Nag-sponsor na kami dati sa UST at trusted na ang mga (researchers doon),” she added.

According to CRMS director Prof. Joven Cerdenia, the Center is currently comparing the distribution of the pressure and the comfort levels in regular socks and Burlington’s new apparel.

“We’re doing tests on about 80 students para makita kung aling parts ang namumula before and after running and jumping,” Cerdenia said.

The CRMS has also been asked by another sports-related company to do tests on its new product, but Cerdenia has declined to specify.

“Sila ‘yung lumapit (sa atin) because they wanted a ‘scientific basis’ in their marketing (strategy),” Cerdenia said. “We will be doing tests from December to January (because the product) will be launched in February.”

Meanwhile, Sports Science chair Josephine Joy Reyes clarified that only the water polo and fencing teams had their athletes trained and tested by the Center, as reported earlier in the Varsitarian. The cooperation between CRMS and the dragon boat and basketball teams was meant to expose students of the College of Rehabilitation Sciences to national-level athletes, she said.
