Orthosleeve® uses decades of industry experience and proprietary textile engineering, called Compression Zone Technology®, to create top-shelf products that target specific conditions and pain points.
Compression Zone Technology® is made on a high-end knitting machine that creates varying levels of medical grade compression strategically placed to affect a certain part of the body with either more or less compression.
Every product is accompanied by a “zone image” to help illustrate how Compression Zone Technology® is applied for that particular use listing what kind of medical-grade compression is applied in the zone. The image for the FS4 Plantar Fasciitis Sock is show below for reference.
A zone with light compression (less than 15mmHg) can be applied to:
- Help ensure proper fit
- Added comfort
- Relieve pressure
A zone with moderate compression (15-20 mmHg) can be applied to:
- Relieve friction
- Assist blood flow
A zone with firm compression (20-30 mmHg) can be applied to:
- Provide support
- Improve circulation
Each zone is meticulously designed to seamlessly work with the next and create the overall benefits of Orthosleeve® compression. And, Orthosleeve® is voluntarily subjects itself to FDA regulations to ensure quality standards. This ensures that the medical grade compression levels in each “zone” are what is stated to consumers.
One thing we can focus on this year is the power of gift giving. Gift-giving guru, Stephanie Pappas, writes that a scientifically proven way to make gifts meaningful is to get something that shows how well you know the person. And, what says “I know you” more than a gift specific to your loved-ones needs.
