Compression Zone Technology® explained
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.
