Bio Skin® Calf Skin™ Sleeve
Bio Skin’s® Calf Skins™ give excellent compression to ease
the pain in injured calves or shins. The thin, breathable material allows
perspiration to evaporate to keep you cool. The unique SkinLok™ feature of the
Bio Skin® material mean the sleeve won’t slide down the leg, even during
Studies show that compression garments reduce muscle fatigue
and improve strength, power, and endurance. The high-level compression provided
by Bio Skin improve athletic performance and endurance by decreasing muscle
vibration. When you jump, the compression keeps your muscles in the position
necessary to fire more quickly and with less effort. This saves energy and
keeps you from feeling as tired, which can also prevent injuries. Correct
positioning from muscle compression enhances performance by increasing
endurance, strength, stamina, and power.
Indications: Contusion, shinsplints, and strain
Benefits of Compression
We understand our products are being used by people who want
to be active, so we have designed materials that provide excellent compression
without limiting activity. Bio Skin® is a unique, patented material designed to
provide high-level compression without creating any discomfort. Bio Skin is
thin and gives radial compression so it conforms nicely to the curves of the
body. Bio Skin is also breathable, so perspiration evaporates right through it,
and is hypo-allergenic so you don’t have to worry about skin reactions. These
characteristics make wearing Bio Skin products a surprisingly satisfying
Revolutionary, Micro-Thin, Bio Skin
The Family of Bio Skin Materials have a tri-laminate design
to dramatically enhance comfort and wearability. It is constructed of Lycra on
the inside and outside with a thin polyurethane “SmartsSkin” membrane in
between. Yet, it is only 1.05mm thick and much stronger than neoprene and other
fabrics used in orthopedics.
SkinLock Anti-Slip Mechanism
The SkinLok characteristic is one of BioSkin’s greatest
assests and most unique qualities. When the skin begins to perspire, the
SkinLok feature activates and increases the coefficient of friction between the
material and the skin. This increase causes the brace to stay more firmly in
place, even during heavy activity, while still allowing perspiration to
evaporate through the material.
Radial Stretch- Contours to the body shape
Bio Skin material stretches in all directions and contours
wonderfully to the body. Bio Skin 4-Way, radial stretch qualities allow maximum
clinical level compression to the joint, while offering maximum comfort. Bio
Skin stretches to fit the shape of the body.
Breathability- Air and perspiration release
Bio Skin material is specifically designed for orthopaedics
and sports medicine – providing maximum compression and maximum comfort.
Breathability is imperative for healthy skin and maximum comfort. Bio Skin
allows natural body temperature regulation.
