Whether you experience pain in the knees, back, hands, elbows or shoulders, Bauerfeind Train® braces are designed to restore mobility and improve performance. They are made from an anatomically knitted breathable fabric with visco-elastic inserts. As the joint moves, they provide a therapeutic massage and stability. This stimulates the circulation and promotes the healing process.

The assortment includes different designs, colors and compression levels to fit different lifestyles of all walks of life. Manufactured with premium quality double covered yarns, all VenoTrain products are designed to provide controlled gradient compression providing maximum pressure at the ankles, decreasing gradually going up the leg. VenoTrain provides effective relief for a wide range of conditions, from tired, achy legs and varicose veins to more severe problems such as chronic venous insufficiency.
KZT® is a breakthrough design that provides the benefits of a kinesiology taping treatment without the inconvenience of its temporary and binding nature. Using a hypoallergenic gel stabilizer system with high resistance fabrication zones, KZT® creates a strapping type effect in specific areas to steady and help secure supportive joint structures. The result is stabilization without immobilization. Proper medical-grade compression in combination with KZT® provides a slip-on therapy solution for use whenever you need it. KZT® is found in the newest OS1st products, the AF7 Ankle Bracing Sleeve and the DS6 Decompression Foot Sleeve!
Compression Zone Technology®
This patented, evolutionary approach to performance sleeves and socks uses top-of-the-line, precision knitting machines to seamlessly transition levels of compression from moderate to firm within a sleeve or sock to target specific conditions. By targeting compression to support affected areas, C-zone technology alleviates and prevents pain.
Every product is shown with a zone chart explaining where the targeted compression zones are within the sleeve or sock. We use anatomically correct placement to maximize the impact of the zones, and provide a sizing chart to help guarantee the correct fit every time.
NormaTec is an innovative tool for enhancing recovery from a wide range of athletic endeavors. Initially used by elite athletes in endurance sports such as marathon running to cycling, NormaTec has been quickly spreading among all fitness levels as a clean, simple yet very effective recovery tool. Now it is becoming more frequently used by competitive olympic weightlifters as well as crossfitters.
Movéo Sport and Rehabilitation Centre provides the NormaTec Pro as a treatment tool (or complement to treatment). A patient wears two full-legged boots, which are pumped with air in a given pattern. The generated “dynamic compression” squeezes the lower limbs with a “peristaltic pulse” to increase circulation and reduce edema (Hutchinson, 2014). This helps to speed up the repairing of microtrauma in muscles following strenuous activity. To imagine the sensation, using the NormaTec is similar to “a cross between a compression sock and a massage” (Hutchinson, 2014).
NormaTec is unique from other compression pumps. It uses its patented Sequential Pulse Technology that imitates the physiology of the body. Unlike traditional compression therapy that uses a single pressure, NormaTec uses a dynamic pulse. This mimics and enhances the skeletal muscle pump mechanism which promotes venous return. It propels fluid from the legs towards the heart, flushing the limbs of inflammation and metabolic waste from exercise and stress. While the pulsing pressure works its magic in one area, a static pressure is held just distally. This mechanism is akin to rolling up the end of a toothpaste tube. It prevents backflow and accumulation of fluid in the distal area, allowing maximum pulsing pressure to drive the blood and fluid towards the heart. This is done to replicate the action of one-way valves that are found in the veins.

Rip Cords Resistance Bands
- The various tension levels of Ripcords mean that you can always find an exercise band that will suit your needs with resistance levels ranging from 3 lb with our yellow band to 92 lb with our Platinum. Ripcords allow you to perform over a hundred different exercises, with the freedom of doing them in the location of your choice. Adding a door anchor to your Ripcords will protect the rubber of your resistance band and can turn any door into a cable machine allowing for sport specific movements and many other full body exercises.
Adding a Ripcords Versatility Anchor will protect your resistance band when training outdoors or when anchoring around a pole, beam, tree or other structure that may have a rough edge or surface leading to premature wear of your band and may lead to injury. Always ensure you never stretch your Ripcords more than 2x the original length, if the band becomes too light it is recommended not to continue to further stretch the Ripcords exercise band as this may lead to damaging the band and potential injury, instead purchase a higher tension band with more resistance.
Whether you want to create a leaner, more athletic physique or build muscle, Ripcords has a resistance level to help you meet your goals.
