Compression Science


Compression clothing has been recommended to patients post surgery for over a century to improve recovery and minimize bruises. Studies have proven that compression applied on the surface of your body increases blood circulation around your muscles, moves blood quicker to your heart and provides muscle stability.

When Do We Need Compression?

> Before and during sports
> Post-activity for recovery
> When standing up for extended hours
> During long flights

As a Result

> You increase your fitness performance
> You reduce soreness and muscle injury
> You minimize muscle oscillation and vibration
> You improve your recovery in no time

“Compression helps reduce the amount of lactic acid that accumulates in the muscle and eliminates toxins during and after an intense activity.”

Dr. Stuart Zoll explains the concept of compression.

The Advantages

During Training

While running or performing any intense activity, compression reduces muscle vibration, preventing muscle damage and injury. Enhanced blood flow provides better endurance, improved performance and prevents inflammation.

After Training

Of course, eating the right foods and sleeping sufficiently are important to recover. However, adding compression to your regimen accelerates muscle repair, reduces inflammation of the tissue and allows for faster recovery.

Studies

UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX


A study by the University of Essex Human Performance Unit concluded that compression leggings improve "energy expenditure while exercising, hasten recovery and improve proprioception.” The researchers took eleven recreational runners and over four sessions, used analysis software, took blood tests and measured oxygen levels as they ran and jumped in fitted or oversized compression tights. ”The runners demonstrated that they used less energy when running at a sub maximal speed.“ Other Research Data >>
