Compression & Support Sleeve: Tourmaline Far Infrared (FIR) Series
Whether your purchasing to simply warm your knees during the day, use as a recovery aid from sports related injuries, suppress chronic pain, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis, or to provide that needed compression during sports activities, this sleeve was designed to maximize its use.
What makes this sleeve unique?
1. Free Range of Motion, Stays Firmly In Place: Designed for maximum comfort, there are no hard edges, instead, the elasticized fabric is ergonomically designed to provide the needed compression and support while keeping the maximum possible comfort.
2. This product is made with activated Black Tourmaline, a naturally occurring semi-precious crystal, containing Boron and complex silicate minerals - known as the "Electric Stone" - as it has been shown to produce a weak electrical charge, which is what enables it to produce and emit Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and Negative Ions. Before the Tourmaline is infused into the fiber it is crushed into powder and altered at the nano-scale to better react with lower temperatures (your own body temperature) to safely emit the Far Infrared Rays.
What Does This Mean?
a. The Tourmaline gives the product an antibacterial activity.
b. The FIR, while invisible to the naked eye, elevates the knee temperature without making you feel hot.
c. The FIR promotes the repair of tissues and the regeneration of cells, aiding in the reduction of inflammation and pain.
d. The Product gives you the comfort and support you need, while providing a bonus therapeutic property to the knee.
My take on it:
I've been experiencing issues with my knee for about a year now. I don't have a lot of pain, but it crunches when I bend it and the one is noticeably weaker than the other. It's worse when I keep up with a workout regimen.
I have tried other braces and support sleeves and it's all about finding one that fits and is comfortable. I find braces too cumbersome for exercise. I'd also tried sleeves which work so much better for me, but have occasional issues with them rolling down. That is why I was looking forward to trying out these support sleeves.
I like that they come as a pair, so you can have coverage for both knees. Even if you aren't experiencing pain yet, it provides nice support while you exercise.
What I found different in these knee supports than others I've tried is the length of them. I find that it actually gives me more support and doesn't shift at all like others I've tried.
With the issues I've been having with the one knee, I now wear both of these as a pair as a preventative measure for the other one when I jog or exercise. Also, they have a fun design which I like.
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
