WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
ZEROPOINT COMPRESSION & BENEFITS
WHAT IS COMPRESSION?
The blood in your veins works against gravity to flow back to the heart. Anything that interfere or disrupt the blood flow—such as circulation problems, lack of movement, excess load, or weakness in the walls of the veins of the legs may result in blood pooling in the veins of your lower legs or feet. This may cause swollen legs and feet, achiness and fatigue. Compression wear adds pressure and squeeze the leg tissues and walls of the veins, enabling blood in the veins to return with oxygen more efficiently to the heart.
Compression wear also improves the flow of lymph which enable you to reduce tissue swelling. Compression socks is used for its benefits by a wide variety of people and professions from runners, crossfitters, pilots, soccer players, rehab patients, athletes and pregnant women.
MEDICAL GRADE GRADUATED COMPRESSION
At ZEROPOINT we use only medical grade graduated compression in all our socks and sleeves. When referring to graduated compression we refer to the special weaving technique where the strongest compression is around the ankle which then gradually decrease towards the top of the sock/sleeve. The graduated compression technique is preferred in socks and sleeves as it does not cut off circulation at a certain point, rather it helps the blood to flow in the right direction in order to efficiently transport the blood back towards the heart and speed up the lactic acid removal.
The compression levels are always designed for a specific use. The harder compression ranges (20-30mmHg) such as Intense and Pro Racing are created for intense sports and should be worn during activity or shorter periods of time. Whereas our medium compression range (15-20 mmHg) Hybrid and Merino are designed for long term use which make them perfect for recovery or travel purposes. Each sock is carefully designed with an anatomical cut in order for you to get the most out of your compression experience. To generate the optimal compression it is important that you get the correct sizing. Carefully measure your calf and ankle circumference and follow our size guides in order to determine your size.
