Frequently Asked Questions
BSc Body Science Compression
Targeted compression to major muscle groups improves performance, delays fatigue, reduces injury and speeds recovery.
Therapeutically rated knit construction offers highest denier and gsm for longer life compression and durability.
Advanced targeted perception of movement arising from stimuli within the exclusive design.
Body Mapping Technology
Enhanced circulation from independently tested body mapping gradient compression assists in reducing lactic acid build-up.
A statistical measure based on muscle and your body mass index (bmi) algorithm.
Muscle Power +
Calculated power yarn means focused force, power and control over muscle vibration.
Advanced permanent catch, move and release system, wicks moisture faster and further. Keeping you drier longer. Moisture doesn’t have a chance.
Optimises body temperature for the life of the garment. Keeping athletes cooler, faster and longer.
Anti-bacterial and microbiological silver weave does not wash out, unlike other chemical treatments.
Anti Chaffing Technology
Fits like a second layer of skin and moves with your body to help reduce abrasions, chafing and skin irritation.

What is meant by graded compression?
What is this new targeted compression technology?
Patent pending design target muscle groups by the panels and seams so compression is applied to individual targeted muscle groups
Allows the garment to move with the t...
What use could compression garments be in the workplace?
Efficiency of movement and management of fatigue is important in terms of occupational health and safety as well as workplace productivity. At one end of the spectrum you have occupations such as f...
Won’t wearing tight compression garments restrict movement?
Compression garments are very thin and don’t impair movement. In fact research in athletes has shown that athletic technique is not restricted by wearing compression garments (4). Prior to trying t...
Could compression garments be used to facilitate recovery from occupational demands?
Despite many occupations being as physical demanding as sport, recovery techniques are rarely applied in the occupational setting. Compression garments have been shown to facilitate recovery betwe...
Will compression garments lead to overheating?
Obviously when worn in an occupational setting compression garments will be worn under traditional work wear or uniforms. As a natural consequence of muscular activity the body produces heat, howev...
I want my on field performance to be more explosive, could compression garments help?
Explosive power has become a prerequisite to success in field based sports. Much of the pre-season training for field sports such as Rugby Union, Rugby League and AFL are dedicated to increasing th...
Compression garments feel like they give support to the muscles, could this reduce injuries?
Obviously in contact based field sports compression garments are going to do very little to protect against contact injuries. However many non contact injuries occur because joints are pushed into ...
I currently use hot and cold baths as part of my post match recovery, how could I incorporate compression garments?
Interestingly compression garments have been shown to be just as beneficial in terms of post match recovery from muscle damage as hot and cold baths (4). If you want the best of both worlds you can...
Some companies quote the pressure exerted by their garments, is this accurate?
The truth is that there is no globally accepted methodology to measure the compression that commercially available compression garments provide. This is why many manufacturers will quote compressio...
Will compression garments reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)?
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) occurs in the days following intense or novel activities and symptoms can range from muscle tenderness to severe debilitating pain (5).
Is there any research to suggest that compression garments can facilitate recovery in the hours following intense exercise?
A recent study investigated the effect of compression garments on recovery between two maximal exercise tests. The study investigated the effect of wearing compression garments during an 80 minute ...
Is there any research to suggest that compression garments could facilitate recovery in shorter periods of time such as a couple of minutes?
In recent times compression garments have become popular in many field based sports such as rugby league, rugby union, soccer and AFL. These sports require a fitness component termed “repeated spri...
Is wearing compression garments as effective as other recovery techniques?
In an attempt to facilitate post exercise recovery, many athletes and teams implement recovery strategies such as contrast water therapy and low intensity active exercise protocols. However sometim...
I hear that compression garments enhance proprioception and reduce muscle oscillation. What does this mean in English?
Proprioception refers to joint position sense or more simply an overall awareness of bodily position. The importance of propriocpetion can be appreciated in terms of injury. Proprioceptors in the s...
Do compression garments reduce blood lactate concentrations?
Blood lactate is a by product of anaerobic muscle metabolism. High muscle and blood lactic acid concentrations can present a challenge to the body’s ability to maintain pH within the narrow physiol...
Is it true that compression garments can reduce the pain associated with intense exercise?
Pain in muscles working at high intensities is a natural occurrence (6). Preliminary research investigating the effect of compression garments on muscle pain has produced some interesting results. ...
Do compression garments enhance explosive power such as vertical jump?
A study conducted by Doan and co-workers (7) reported that vertical jump height increased by 2.4cm when performed wearing compression garments. In an earlier study it was reported that the average ...
Will compression garments enhance endurance performance, VO2max and anaerobic threshold?
VO2max and anaerobic threshold are physiological measurements that are deemed to be highly correlated to success in endurance sports. VO2max is defined as the greatest rate of oxygen uptake by the ...
Compression garments seem popular among male athletes, can females benefit from them as well?
Although there are gender differences in terms of human physiology, the physiological benefits of compression garments are available to both males and females. Research reporting enhanced performan...
I am a 65 year old masters athlete. Am I too old to benefit from compression garments?
The physiological benefits of compression garments are not limited to young athletes. In a recent study scientists investigated the effect of compression garments on performance in 63 year old spor...
