The body adopts a venous blood system delivering oxygenated blood to the muscles and returning used blood back to the heart. The veins returning used blood back to the heart sit closer to the surface of the skin. This is why you sometimes see ‘blue’ or dark veins near the surface.
SKINS compression applies pressure to these ‘blue’ veins accelerating the blood flow back to the heart. SKINS pioneered engineered gradient compression following years of research. When you apply compression to specific body parts in a balanced and accurate way, it accelerates blood flow. This means you get more oxygen to your working muscles – and boosting your performance.
Better blood flow also helps your body to get rid of lactic acid and other metabolic wastes – which helps you work at a higher rate for longer. Plus, improved oxygenation reduces the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness and accelerates muscle repair. SKINS engineered gradient compression play a big part in helping you recover from exercise too.
