Isobar compression is designed to be effective; it is proven to expedite recovery after training allowing cyclists to recover quicker, giving them the edge.
The science: The personalised and customisable pressure level and pressure profiling enables the compression therapy to focus on either the venous return (time taken for blood to return to the heart from the ankle) and blood oxygenation or on the performance and recovery of muscles, preventing swelling and removing metabolites or a combination of both.
- 59% reduction in venous transit time (the time taken for the blood to return to the heart from the ankle) therefore improving blood oxygen and removing waste from the blood quicker.
- 100% recovery in strength after 48 hours
