The second part of the OPROtec ethos focuses on recovery.
Unfortunately, injuries happen and we know being side-lined from activity is tough. But at OPROtec, we want to get you on the road to healing as soon as possible. Our sleeves, supports, and braces have all been created with materials and designs that warm and compress muscles to encourage blood flow and kickstart your body's natural healing process.
Neoprene is a padded, stretchy, weather-resistant fabric with several unique qualities that promote recovery, the most important being its thermal properties. The neoprene in OPROtec products provides thermal compression and heat retention that promotes more efficient healing and muscle and joint movement. Neoprene retains heat - this leads to an increased oxygen consumption that aids in raising lactic acid thresholds. This, in turn, maximises blood flow to the area and reduces inflammation and pain.
The OPROtec ankle, calf, knee, and elbow sleeves all feature seamless knitting technology. Unlike other materials that may have thick seams that dig into the skin, the seamless design is specifically engineered for long-lasting comfort during athletic activity. OPROtec knitted sleeves help improve muscle performance and muscle recovery from injury through compression and increased blood flow to affected areas.
