OWELL MedicFlow Tights uses the Advanced German Compression Weaving Technology to create a BIO-Mechanics Graduated Compression (BGC).
BGC is a revolutionary “fabric-hugging” system where compression is controlled and graduated — strongest at the ankle (100%) and gradually reduces towards the calf, knee, thigh and hip (see figure on the right). This helps to fight the effects of gravity and assist the body in venous return (deoxygenated blood flowing back up to the heart). Therefore, encouraging blood circulation in the lower body while boosting metabolism and muscles oxygenation.
Additional compressive pattern weaving can also be found at precise sections of the tights to provide extra targeted pressure over key leg muscles (e.g. quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and calves). This stabilizes the muscles and reduces unnecessary muscular vibration, therefore reducing muscle fatigue.
