SIGVARIS to supply Active Therapy Socks to NBA team

SIGVARIS, the global leader of graduated compression garments and ardent advocate for DVT prevention, will supply NETS Basketball with socks from their Active Therapy line for training, recovery and travel.

A growing trend among competitive athletes and weekend warriors, professional sports athletes are using compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. 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.

“True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout. In addition to improved circulation, wearing compression during and after strenuous exercise or competition may help flush out lactic acid and provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness.

In addition to NETS Basketball, SIGVARIS has partnerships in place with the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts NFL teams for the 2010 and 2011 football seasons. SIGVARIS, through the Athletic Recovery line of socks, already has established several strategic partnerships with established sports organizations in North America, such as: Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing).
