Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does compression gear work?
    Compression gear works by applying pressure to the area it covers. This pressure helps improve blood flow, reduce swelling, and relieve pain. The level of compression can vary depending on the product and the desired outcome.
  • What are the benefits of wearing compression gear during a workout?
    Wearing compression gear during a workout can help improve circulation, reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, and support the underlying structures of the knee, elbow, or ankle joints. It can also help to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
  • What are the benefits of wearing compression gear for recovery?
    Wearing compression gear during recovery can help to reduce swelling, improve circulation, and promote healing. It can also help reduce muscle soreness and fatigue and provide support to the muscles and joints.
  • How do I know what size compression gear to buy?
