Sport Compression

Sports Solutions

Graduated compression socks deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases toward the top of the sock. This promotes better blood flow against gravity and assist in the prevention of swelling and varicose veins. They act like a layer of muscle, gently squeezing stretched vein walls and helping muscles recover by removing lactic acid. This design allows the ACHI socks to function like a massage up the leg while pumping and circulating the blood towards the heart.” Lunatik Athletiks

Arterial Benefits

Compression accelerates the blood circulation by improving perfusion of muscles which are supplied with more oxygen due to the improved blood supply. Optimum muscle performance and longer endurance. 

Venous Benefits

The pressure gradient in compression socks  helps accelerate and improve the flow of blood back to the heart, resulting in faster transport of low oxygen blood and metabolic substances. Fewer muscle symptoms and faster regeneration.

Muscular Benefits

Compression supports, stimulates and stabilizes the leg muscles under stress. Compression reduces muscle vibration on the ligaments. This can reduce chronic symptoms of inflammation especially degeneration of the Achilles tendon. The number of muscle fibre ruptures are also reduced. Fewer muscle injuries, stiff muscles and cramps.
