Frequently Asked Questions


What is "Graduated Compression" and how does it work?

Within your veins there are valves. If the valves become damaged or weak, compression gives them a boost and helps them to be more efficient. More blood flow back to the heart can improve your health.  It can also speed up the healing and recovery process. Compression Sleeves reduce pain and inflammation that come from strenuous workouts and sports-related injuries.
Graduated Compression is a new type of technology that will give you continuous compression. Graduated Compression helps your veins work at their greatest level. Compression Zone Technology® improves your circulation and supports your tendons, ligaments and muscles.
A Compression Sleeve helps you heal so that you don’t have to slow down.

Can you explain Compression Zone Technology®?

Compression Zone Technology® refers to a medical grade compression technology that OS1st invented. Compression Zone Technology® uses varying levels of compression to create orthopedic support. Every compression sleeve uses medical-grade compression equipment. OS1st invented the technology for surgical stockings and supports. They then utilized the technology to create light weight performance compression sleeves for athletes.
OS1st combines this technology with comfortable and lightweight materials. Their compression sleeves give support to athletes who push their bodies to the limit.
