Tommie Copper launches copper-infused compression shorts
Apr '12
Tommie Copper has developed the world's first copper-infused compression shorts for men and women designed to help relieve pain and inflammation. The shorts utilize Therapeutic Copper Compression, a process that combines proprietary copper-infused yarn with an exclusive multi-directional compression fabric. Since compression only works when you wear it, the results are shorts that can be worn all day and night to help ease hip and groin pain, as well as reduce soreness and decrease recovery time in the quad, thigh and hamstrings.

Tom Kallish, founder of Tommie Copper, explains that the final design of the shorts couldn't have come sooner. “Tommie Copper's comfortable compression line has had a tremendous response from those living with chronic pain, however customers were asking for something that could provide relief for their hips and groin. Having had lower back and hip surgeries myself, I was the perfect test subject to begin developing them.

Just as we were arriving at a final prototype, I gave the shorts to Montel Williams to test for his chronic pain due to Multiple Sclerosis. Enthusiastic about their performance, Montel took the shorts prototype on a national talk show with a well-known doctor, explaining how he uses Tommie Copper to combat pain and, as an aside, added that they can help blood flow...down there. Needless to say, the website was shut down with inquiries. A good problem to have, if only they weren't still prototypes!”

Additional benefits include:
• Comfortable multi-directional compression can be worn 24 hours a day, even while sleeping
• Discreet design allows shorts to be worn under clothing or exercise apparel
• Stimulates blood flow, decreases inflammation and increases mobility
• Highly wickable fabric keeps skin dry
• Prevents chaffing

Tommie Copper's compression shorts are available in a female cut and a male cut that functions more as under-shorts. Shorts began arriving April 11th to an enthusiastic audience.

Tommie Copper is the leader in innovative copper compression apparel designed to be comfortably worn all day by athletes and non-athletes alike who want relief from everyday aches and pains.
