Medical Grade Compression

Historically, compression has been designed for function under strict regulations in the medical community. With knowledge of the proven benefits becoming more widespread, many sports and fashion retailers added ‘compression’ to their offerings, however, the retail market does not enforce any of the strict medical standards for manufacture, fitting and product sales – so brands often misuse the medical research to sell any tight clothing under the guise of compression.
