We have always had compression stockings, but they always came in the boring white, black, or nude colours. Now, we have them in all sorts of colors and designs. Check out a few of our samples!
How they work?
The noticeable compression it exerts improves circulation in the legs, reduces muscle vibrations and speeds up recovery. Its light, breathable material feels comfortable on the skin. This makes it the ideal support over long distances, when running or cycling for example.
- Improves circulation
- Speeds up recovery
The positive impact on circulation and the muscles protects the vein system when it is under persistent stress, this promotes a quicker recovery. Endurance athletes benefit from this in particular. This was highlighted by a medical study* conducted on the 2011 Paris Marathon and runners using compression stockings. The participants reported less muscle pain, a reduced feeling of swelling and much better muscle recovery in the first four days after the race. Their calf veins had not dilated during the race in spite of the increased strain.
This also has similar effects to the non-athlete. If your job demands that you be on your feet all day, this is a way you can combat muscle soreness.
