True Graduated Compression
When an athlete slips on a pair of SIGVARIS Sports Socks or Sleeves, his or her legs will instantly feel supported and comfortable, but the real benefit of wearing true graduated compression happens at a deeper level. All SIGVARIS Sports products use the science of true graduated compression. This means that the compression is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes up the leg (see diagram below). These compression socks act as a layer of muscle, gently squeezing stretched vein walls. This built-in feature helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart more efficiently.
When blood is properly circulated, it restores much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been deprived during a workout. SIGVARIS Sports products help muscles regenerate more efficiently and help to remove any lactic acid that has built up. Today’s athletes understand that true graduated compression helps to improve their performance, which is why athletes worldwide won’t leave home without SIGVARIS Sports.
Note: When you shop for athletic compression socks or sleeves, please keep in mind that many brands don’t actually offer the benefits of true graduated compression. SIGVARIS is the global leader in graduated compression therapy with more than 50 years in the field of medical graduated compression products.
