The SIGVARIS Performance Sport Compression Socks (20-30)mmHg
What is true graduated compression, and how does it work?
When an athlete slips on a SIGVARIS Active Therapy sock, 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 Active Therapy socks 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). The compression socks actually act as a layer of muscle, gently squeezing stretched vein walls. This built-in feature helps fight the force of gravity and circulate the blood back to the heart more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been deprived during a workout. Active Therapy Socks help muscles regenerate more efficiently, as well as help remove any lactic acid that is built up. Today's athletes understand that true graduated compression helps their performance, which is why athletes worldwide won't leave home without these socks.
Note: When you are looking to buy athletic compression socks, make sure the sock offers true graduated compression. Many products that claim to have compression don't feature true graduated compression. When you wear the SIGVARIS Performance Sock, you are guaranteed maximum compression at the ankle. The Active Therapy Line was created by SIGVARIS - a company with more than 50 years in the medical compression industry.
