By August 5, 2010 News No Comments

Following the recent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) health scare for golfer Lee Westwood at the French Open Championship, gctech™, producers of medical grade graduated compression socks, have seen an increase in sales to other professional golfers on the world stage.  Westwood’s scare turned out to be a false alarm, but the risk of DVT to golfers and other sports stars, particularly those who train, travel and perform all around the world, remains.

gctech™ socks provide targeted graduated compression of the lower leg and are considered a mechanical ergogenic aid with a wide range of benefits which contribute to performance enhancement in sports and exercise through muscle compression technology. The key areas where wearing medical grade compression can help in sport are: performance, recovery after sport, injury rehabilitation and conditioning daywear and all travel.

gctech™ is fast becoming the world leader in medical grade compression products.  Follow this link to watch a video of the Westwood drama with expert commentary from Compression Advisory expert, gctech™’s Medical Director, Akbar de Medici, as well as the views on gctech™ compression socks by leading Danish golfer Anders Hansen.
