FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA – California running store, A Snail’s Pace, and the number one running compression bracing product, OS1st, donated superhero themed OS1st compression sleeves to Saddleback Memorial Medical Care Center, serving their community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“From head-to-toe we are a community-focused business,” a spokesperson for A Snail’s Pace said. “We have been a part of Southern California life since 1979, and we felt that we needed to continue that commitment to the area during the pandemic.”
The donated OS1st compression sleeves feature medical grade compression designed to relieve aching legs and feet, which can be the result of standing for extended periods of time. Compression garments, like these sleeves, are often worn by medical professionals to help relieve pain in feet, legs, and joints during long shifts.
“We know that not all heroes wear capes,” President of OS1st, Joshua Higgins said. “In the fight against COVID-19 the heroes are wearing scrubs and working long hours on their feet.”
