What Do Arm Compression Sleeves Do?

Dec 14, 2019

From basketball to football, we have all seen athletes wear those sleek compression sleeves during a game or practice. Sure, they look cool with a variety of designs and colors available, but you might ask, “What do arm compression sleeves actually do?” Turns out, compression sleeves actually do a lot more than you might think! Read on to discover the many benefits the Bauerfeind Sports Compression Sleeve for the arm below. 

 

 

IMPROVES CIRCULATION

Thanks to the medical compression technology seen in Bauerfeind’s Sports Compression Sleeves, athletes can benefit from increased oxygen and, in turn, improved circulation. This will result in higher endurance, faster muscle regeneration, slower fatigue, greater levels of energy, and reduced damaging muscle vibrations. Additionally, this increase in circulation from our arm compression sleeve also works to prevent swelling and inflammation to reduce an athlete’s risk of injury.

PROTECTS AGAINST THE SUN

Another great benefit of wearing our arm compression sleeve is sun protection. Featuring an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 80, the Sports Compression Sleeve for the arm is eight times more effective than a light t-shirt and keeps your skin protected even when stretched or wet. This is ideal for sports that practice or play on fields during sunny afternoons.

RESTS COMFORTABLY ON THE SKIN

No athlete wants to be distracted during a game or practice because their compression sleeves are uncomfortable. That is why our Sports Compression Sleeve features highly-breathable, temperature-regulating microfiber that keeps the joints and muscles warm without digging into the skin. The zones of the sleeve are strategically placed at the more sensitive parts of the arm to ensure a comfortable, breathable fit. No matter your sport, you will notice a difference in endurance, comfort, and relief when you add the Bauerfeind Sports Compression Sleeve for the arm to the mix.
