Whether that means running marathons, playing golf on the weekends, or playing in the backyard with your grandkids. So why is a compression clothing brand talking about lifetime adventures? Good question. Part of enjoying an active lifestyle later into life is having healthy legs and feet to carry you there. Queue graduated compression. We believe that wearing graduated compression is a lifestyle choice and an investment in a better future. Let us explain.
Graduated Compression = Lifestyle
When you choose to wear graduated compression socks / leg sleeves you are making an investment in the present and future condition of your legs and feet. Graduated compression, as the name implies, is designed to offer different levels of compression throughout the garment. For example, a graduated compression sock will offer the most compression at the ankle and then lessen in value as it reaches the top of the calf. This technology helps to improve blood flow, prevent injuries, and speed up recovery. No matter what age you are, these simple health benefits can help you enjoy to the fullest the adventures your life has in store.
