Medically endorsed SIGVARIS is proud to announce the release of the SIGVARIS Performance Sock into the U.S. Market. The launch marks the latest addition to the Active Therapy line, designed for competitive athletes and weekend warriors.
SIGVARIS’ Athletic Recovery has been extremely popular since it launched last year. Now athletes will not only be able to improve their recovery time, they’ll also be able to peak their performance with the launch of SIGVARIS’ newest sock.
“Having been the global leader in medical compression therapy for the past 50 years, SIGVARIS is at the forefront of creating the most effective compression products,” says Jonas Thelin, director of marketing for SIGVARIS North America.
“It made sense for us to enter the sports market because the use of compression is such a huge topic in sports right now, and we had an opportunity to create truly superior sports compression socks. Our Active Therapy line was designed to optimize an athlete’s athletic performance as well as speed up post-workout recovery time.”
When a sportsperson slips on a SIGVARIS Active Therapy sock, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg.
Features of the Performance Sock include:
• True graduated compression (20-30mmHg)
• An extra-wide comfort band that stays in place without digging into the skin
• Safety reflectors for running at night
• Achilles Tendon protectors to reduce vibration on vulnerable ligaments
• A cushioned foot bed design to help keep feet blister free
• High-tech fibers for thermal and odor control – sock stays perfectly dry
SIGVARIS North America is part of an internationally active medical device group headquartered in Winterthur, Switzerland that focuses on the development, production and distribution of medical compression garments, including hosiery and socks.
