OS1st Orthosleeve FS6 Black Compression Foot Sleeves are designed to help people with plantar fasciitis. The company felt that the existing products on the market were bulky, heavy and caused people to sweat which meant that those in need of help due to foot pain, gave up on these products quickly. The FS6 is lightweight and comfortable and helps relieve foot pain with targeted compression. It has six targeted support zones with three levels of compression. The toe and the area above the ankle are gentle compression areas, while there is moderate compression around the ball of the foot and the heel. The arch and the ankle have firm compression which increases circulation; this in turn helps reduce swelling and relieve foot pain.
