For over ninety years, Bauerfeind has been constantly researching, testing and providing compression sleeves to doctors and patients across the world. Now they're at the very fore of compression technology and comfort.
Whether it's sports sleeves for all the Olympians that Bauerfeind work with constantly, some compression for the marathon runner training at home or just some recovery sleeves for a gym-goer feeling some pain in the legs, sport compression sleeves don't come better than Bauerfeind.
How do these help my muscles?
Compression benefits the muscles in two main ways. The first is that it increase blood-flow, which speeds up recovery of the muscles from injury and fatigue. The second is muscular stability, reducing excessive strain so energy isn't wasted on the muscle moving any which way, but focusing each flex, for more power in each movement, more endurance and less fatigue.
Will these weaken my muscles?
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
Can I wear these all day?
Virtually all our medical supports are designed to be worn for any length of time, whether it's half an hour after exercise to recover the muscle, or first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
How do I take care of these products?
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
What is the warranty for these products?
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
How do I know they'll fit?
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
