About SIGVARIS Sports:
When an athlete slips on a SIGVARIS sports product, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout. Unlike the SIGVARIS Sports products, many other sports products do not feature “true graduated compression.”
Medical studies show that true graduated compression helps improve blood flow. Studies also show that graduated compression can help reduce delayed onset muscle sorness in active individuals. In 2010, three dozen golfers, both men and women, ranging in skill level, were evaluated wearing SIGVARIS socks during a round of golf. After the study, 86% (31 of 36) of the golfers, responded that their legs and/or ankles felt LESS tired and aching at the end of the golf round when wearing the SIGVARIS graduated compression golf sock.
Many professional atheletes have endorse the SIGVARIS Sports product line. Carl landry, professional basketball player, recently said, "After 40-plus minutes against some of the top athletes in the world, nothing feels better on the long ride home than SIGVARIS SPORTS...I know other athletes that try these products are going to experience great results."
