SIGVARIS Performance Sock
The use of compression socks and sleeves is a growing trend among athletes worldwide. When athletes wear true graduated compression, compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition, it helps flush out lactic acid and provides symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. SIGVARIS manufactures a Performance Sock, a Performance Sleeve and an Athletic Recovery Sock to help athletes peak their performance and speed up their recovery time!
At the event, representatives from SIGVARIS and Natural Strides store will be on hand to properly measure and fit athletes for sports compression sleeves and socks. A proper fit is essential to ensuring the maximum health benefits when using graduated compression products. Wearing true graduated compression socks during travel can also help prevent a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), a high-risk for high-endurance athletes. SIGVARIS representatives will also share information about how improving circulation with graduated compression helps to prevent chronic venous disorders.
SIGVARIS sponsors several sports events each year to help educate athletes about the benefits of wearing true graduated compression. Participants who stop by the SIGVARIS booth may enter to win a pair of SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Socks and participate in the free leg health screening by Vein Clinics of America.
