Why choose Isobar Compression?

Isobar's compression socks and sleeves are custom fitted to provide the optimal level of compression. This enhances circulation and increases the oxygen intake of your muscles – boosting your performance. Improved circulation also helps to flush out lactic acid and other metabolic waste that builds up during intense activity. 

Isobar compression is clinically proven to improve recovery after training and competing by increasing blood flow, reducing muscle fatigue and swelling. Meaning you recover faster and can train harder and longer next time.

 

Isobar has five distinct benefits for athletes

“There are two major limitations of most commercially available garments that Isobar addresses:

1) Isobar’s 3D scan means the athlete gets the perfect fit. Elite athletes from a range of sports come in many different shapes and sizes; hence the simple sizing system used by most companies is inadequate.
2) Isobar provides a clinical level of compression that is quantified. Many commercial garments provide unknown levels of compression, and lose their compression over time.

Our experiences with Isobar over the years have been nothing but positive. The price is worth it and the turnaround time rapid.”

Recommendations from a leading sports scientist

We pride ourselves on the scientific integrity of our Isobar compression garments. Dr Jonathan Leeder (Lead Physiologist British Cycling and Lead Physiologist and Lab Director at English Institute of Sport) has weighed up the scientific evidence on compression garments for us.

Dr Leeder comments on the following seven topics: 

  1. Recovery – What is it and why is it important?
  2. How can compression garments enhance recovery?
  3. What is the evidence that compression garments work for athletes?
  4. Compression versus other recovery techniques
  5. Specifics of the Isobar compression garment
  6. Recommendations for using compression garments
  7. Travel

“As an Applied Physiologist, I am concerned with ensuring optimal graduated compression and role of fit is critical to achieving this. Truly graduated pressure has to be measured in some way. We have a wide range of sizes across the swim team and specificity is important – otherwise you are just putting on a tight pair of socks. And you don’t want to occlude blood flow by wearing a sock that is too tight and in the wrong areas.

Customised fit is the only way to do that properly and so scanning a cross section of the calf makes perfect sense. As a scientist, this is important. The athletes I have worked with have really benefitted from Isobar.”
