Best Compression Sleeves for Athletes

Watch out for fake compression sleeves! Only OS1st
makes compression sleeves with Compression Zone

Os1st is the only compression sleeve brand with targeted zone technology. Creator of the Diabetic Sock Marketplace, Dave Higgins wanted to provide products for athletes and those with active lifestyles that would keep them performing instead of immobilizing them. As a product specialist for sports and health care, Dave invented Compression Zone Technology® found in all OS1st products.

Beginning with the FS6 Performance Foot Sleeve launched three years ago, OS1st began treating common chronic foot conditions for athletes. Now, we offer the best performance bracing sleeves to ease pain throughout the body!

TheFS6 Performance Foot Sleeve is distributed by over 1,000 Doctors of Podiatric Medicine worldwide for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, arch pain, heel pain and edema. According to Leisure Trends, the FS6 Performance Foot Sleeve is the #1 selling sports brace in the USA Run Specialty market and has maintained that position for 3 years. Today, the FS6 has sold over 3,000,000 units worldwide.

The FS6 Performance Foot Sleeve is THE bracing sleeve you need to keep on running.

OS1st was founded on the principle that only the best in controlled compression technology will do. We use only the finest materials to produce the highest quality medical-grade compression bracing sleeves available anywhere. Through careful and focused efforts, we have developed Compression Zone Technology® to provide effective pain relief backed by science and the most advanced technical equipment.

Only OS1st uses patent pending Compression Zone Technology® in every performance sleeve. Our compression sleeves have multiple sections, or zones, that feature a different level of compression. The zones range from light to firm (1015 mmHg to 2030 mmHg) and each zone has its own specifically designed function. The changing levels of compression throughout each device is what creates the orthopedic effect of a bracing device. Compression zones prevent injuries and provide relief to previous injuries all to keep you in the game longer!

There are lots of so-called compression sleeves on the market today. But only OS1st has invested the time, quality, and care to ensure that you get the very best compression sleeve available today. OS1st performance sleeves are carefully manufactured, use the highest possible quality materials, fibers, and undergo FDA scrutiny.

From White Paper written by Dr. Roy Lidtke, DPM, FACFAOM:

“Neuromuscular adaptation is often described as the role that stimulation (compression in this case) of the afferent nerve fibers in the joint capsule and ligaments has on proprioception and function of the muscles involved with the joint segment. This research suggests that wearing devices such as the FS6 produces a heightened neurological stimulation that in turn produces a feedback mechanism to the muscles allowing them to adapt more efficiently near their physiological resting length. With proper function of the muscles, the joint segments would function at a level reducing any excessive segmental biomechanical loads across the tissues allowing for normal physiological healing.”

According to Dr. Ben Pearl, DPM of Arlington Foot and Ankle:

“I was an early adopter of the FS6 sleeve as I developed my own case of Plantar Fasciitis and found an immediate slight reduction in pain on wearing it, with my first steps in the morning. When I can look a patient in the eye and tell them I have benefitted from the product I am recommending they have that much more confidence in what I am telling them.”
