Our compression range consists of arthritis socks and gloves as well as compression clothing for active enthusiasts such as compression leg sleeves, arm sleeves and compression socks.
Compression clothing comes in many guises – shorts, shirts, tights/leggings and underwear. The aim of compression garments is to keep the muscles warm during and after exercise in order to prevent muscle strain and fatigue. Compression gear also wicks moisture away from the skin, thus preventing chafing. We stock an excellent selection of compression leg sleeves, compression arm sleeves and compression shorts and gloves.
Compression clothing is made for most parts of the body from the head, right down to the feet. Compression garments were developed scientifically to try and improve performance and prevent muscle strain and fatigue. The compression gear applies balanced pressure over various parts of the body which, in turn, increases blood flow which accelerates the delivery of oxygen to the various muscles groups. The improvement in circulation helps to remove metabolic wastes such as lactic acid.
Compression wear is made from fabric which wicks moisture away from the body thus making you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. The wicking effect also prevent sores from chafing. Many items in the compression apparel range also contain an antibacterial property which helps to prevent body odour.
Compression clothing can be used by all sportsmen and women, whether they are playing basketball or soccer or running and cycling, they will benefit from less muscle soreness after a workout and a much quicker recovery time. Some scientific studies have also reported an increase in muscle power and strength after periods of strenuous exercise among athletes and sportsmen.
