If you are new to calf compression sleeves, then you may not be aware of the reasons why so many athletes choose to wear compression garments in the first place. While compression sportswear is sometimes worn simply because it is popular, there is a great deal of scientific data that supports its use as a way to enhance performance and speed recovery time from injury.
The main reason we launched DinoDerm calf compression sleeves is because, as a couple who runs, we began to experience common running injuries like calf strain, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis…fortunately, not all at the same time.
Still, after dealing with a persistent case of shin splints and the lengthy ice/ibuprofen/rest recovery regimen, we turned to sports medicine to see if there is any way to speed up the time it took to recover.
That is when we learned about graduated compression calf sleeves.
After trying out all the big names on the market (some were good, most were garbage), we concluded that we could make a better calf sleeve that would be more effective, and less expensive than the ones being sold in sporting-goods stores.
So we committed a large chunk of our life savings to developing, testing, designing, and manufacturing DinoDerm calf compression sleeves.
Now, over a year later, and with hundreds of satisfied customers, we could not be happier knowing that we are providing a superior product to people who are either dealing with a running injury, or trying to prevent one.
But not all of our calf compression sleeve customers are athletes.
In fact, there are a number of healthcare workers, shift workers, teachers, and others whose jobs require them to stand and walk for hours every day.
You can read more about the science behind our compression sleeves in the compression sleeve articles section.
Most importantly, we want all of our customers to know that, as a small family business, DinoDerm is on your side and committed to helping you live the healthiest life possible. We hope that when you buy our calf compression sleeves, they will play a small role in improving your life and activity levels.
