Innovative training gear maker Zensah has developed a series of high-performance compression clothing using a proprietary knitting process and materials. The company’s bestselling dual action shin sleeve treats shin splints and calf pulls, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain. The sleeve’s front is designed to prevent shin splints by incorporating a ribbed chevron pattern to help support muscles in the shin area. The deep groove ribbing also helps increase blood circulation, getting oxygen to the muscles faster, while the back of the sleeve provides support of the calf and Achilles tendon with micro ribbing and vertical line which mimic the calf muscles. Chevron ribbing, when aligned with the middle-front of your shin, reduces risk of shin splints and associated pain. About Compression Graduated compression features the greatest amount of compression in the part of the garment farthest away from the heart, and the least amount compression in the part closest to the heart (for example, socks have more compression in the ankle and less in the calf). With graduated compression, veins’ cross sectional area is decreased and a pressure gradient is created, which leads to physiological benefits including: Deoxygenated blood goes back to the heart faster as a result of improved venous return, thus enhancing blood circulation throughout the body Faster recovery following strenuous exercise and improved performance, by aiding in the removal of blood lactate Reduced blood lactate concentration during maximal exercise bouts, allowing for an increased lactic threshold for improved performance Enhanced warm-up via increases in skin temperature Reduced muscle oscillation and vibration upon ground contact, providing stability to the muscle to help prevent micro-trauma, making for a faster and easier recovery Reduced effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise through alleviating swelling and inflammation Increased muscle support, which increases performance through improved muscle efficiency Improved leg power and vertical jump through enhanced proprioception Studies have shown that those that have gained most by wearing compression are those transitioning from an inactive to active lifestyle. Older populations have experienced great benefits from use of compression socks and sleeves. Amateur athletes may see physiological improvements through using compression. About Zensah Based on the Italian word ‘senza,’ meaning ‘to be without,’ Zensah was created to help athletes at all levels improve their performance by utilizing unique, seamless sportswear designed to enhance performance and speed recovery. The company’s innovative seamless design consists of a breathable, moisture-wicking fabric that draws sweat away from the body, allowing the garment and athlete to stay cool, dry, and light. The Zensah Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve provides dual action support and compression to the calf and shin area for muscles support and pain relief. The chevron ribbing at front helps to alleviate shin splints. Graduated, pin-point compression provides shin and calf support to reduce strain and sooth cramps. Zensah uses a special seamless knitting process for a fabric that is soft, breathlable and wicks moisture. The Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve are also valuable recovery aids since the more oxygen the muscles receive, the faster they recovery allowing athletes to push the envelope in their training. The Zensah Calf/Shin sleeve is ideal for runners, cyclists and triathletes. Sold in single units. Purchase two if you require a pair. Compression Leg Sleeves Sizing When choosing a size, calf size should be used as the primary determinant. Measure the calf at the widest point. We list height for those who do not know their calf size. If between two sizes, recommend sizing down.
