Zensah® Performance Apparel Debuts Marathon Recovery Sleeves at the Boston Marathon
Innovative leg sleeves reduce recovery time for marathon runners helping marathon runners to recover faster.
Boston, MA April 17, 2008 -- Zensah® the originator seamless performance apparel announces the global debut of marathon recovery sleeves this weekend at the Boston Marathon. The marathon recovery sleeves will be available for viewing at Zensah® booth #940 at the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo taking place at the Hynes Convention Center from April 18- 20.
One of the greatest challenges is not making it to the finish line, but making it to the starting line. Many runners don't make it to the starting line due to injuries as part of their marathon training. Recovering from long runs is paramount in any marathon training program. Until now there was no specific way for targeting the lower leg.
"The Boston Marathon is the most prestigious marathon in the world." said Ryan Oliver of Zensah®. " We're thrilled that Zensah® will be able to showcase its innovative products to the over 25,000 elite runners of the Boston Marathon."
"Runners from all over the world will now have the chance to improve their training and set new P.R.'s with the Zensah® recovery leg sleeves."
The company says that for the first time pinpoint pressure is applied to the calf and shin area. Studies have shown that boosting oxygen blood circulation speeds recovery and reduces post race soreness
Features & Benefits
The Zensah® marathon recovery sleeves uses elevated grooves, and engineered ribbing to provide pinpoint gradient compression. The calf is made of different muscles which include the gastroc muscle, and soleus. The same knit fabric found in regular compression socks do not provide the tailored support. The Zensah® marathon recovery sleeves were developed to provide an answer to this problem.
The company engineered compression sleeves features and benefits include:
- Alternating groove compression to increase muscle recovery and circulation
- Longitude ribbing for deep calf support
- Chevron ribbing or inverted "V" pattern to reduce shin splint injury
- Improve Performance
The marathon recovery sleeves can be used in numerous endurance sports such as trail running, 1/2 marathon, ultra running, and triathlons. It also is used for injury prevention, and other sports medicine applications. The company envisions developing further products based upon its proprietary alternating groove compression fabric.
