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 experience.
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.
