Compression wear improves muscle uptake of oxygen and nutrients, reduces muscle vibrations and improves muscle recovery. Mechanical pressure can negatively influence blood circulation. If no sweat remains on the skin, the blood cannot be cooled and the body’s cooling system won’t work properly.
How it works
1 | PRESSURE ON RIDGES
Partialkompression® applies targeted pressure on 1mm wide ridges. Between the ridges are compression-free areas.
2 | BLOOD VESSELS AND CAPILLARIES
Compression guarantees improved oxygen and nutrient supply to the muscles. However, the blood circulation of the skin might be negatively affected by compression.
3 | CAPILLARIES REMAIN OPEN
With Partialkompression®, the blood flow through veins and capillaries remain unimpeded in the compression-free areas.
4 | COOLING SWEAT
Moreover, sweat can remain on the skin and thus can cool the blood which in turn is the body's cooling liquid.
What effect it has
Compression is performance enhancing. Scientific and medical studies have confirmed the advantages of modern compression clothing for training, competition and recovery:
1. Improved oxygen uptake by the muscular system
2. More efficient oxygen consumption by the muscular system
3. Increased muscle performance
4. Faster repair of muscle damage
5. Reduced muscular pain
6. Minimized muscle vibrations
However, mechanical pressure can lead to the blood supply to larger areas of skin being partially or completely restricted.
This is why X-BIONIC® developed the partial compression system. It combines all the advantages of compression clothing, but by using targeted bridge zones. The blood vessels either side remain open for optimalcirculation and the natural cooling function of the blood.
Which evidence exists
X-BIONIC® Partialkompression® keeps you able to perform for longer.
– Harnesses the skin’s potential as the body’s largest (temperature regulating) organ. Pressure is exerted only over bars.
Mechanical pressure can lead to the blood supply to larger areas of skin being partially or completely restricted.
– This can affect the natural cooling process.
* Scientifically proven by CeRiSM, centre for mountain sports research and health research institute at the University of Verona, Italy:
Comparative assessment of functional responses (cardiovascular system, metabolism, thermoregulation) at sub maximal and maximal exertion and the use of different types of compression clothing in cases of hyperthermia”.
The study with X-BIONIC® Partialkompression® proves:
Significantly less heat generation
Longest performance duration
The lowest levels of lactate production
Lowest heart rate
Measurements taken during a study at the University of Verona, Italy (2011)
Boost your performance and safety
Enhanced performance thanks to optimised compression and cooling.
During sport activities body warmth is created. In extreme situations up to 1,200 watts worth. Up to 90 % of this is released by the athlete from the skin to maintain a body temperate of 98.6 °F/37 °C. X-BIONIC® Partialkompression® applies targeted pressure on 1 mm-wide ridges. Left and right of the ridge is a compression-free area where compression could have a negative effect on blood circulation to the skin. In this way the blood flow through veins and capillaries remain unimpeded.
THE RESULTS ARE REVOLUTIONARY:
• Reduces muscle vibration
• Improves muscle uptake of oxygen and nutrients
• Provides for faster recovery
+ COOLING MECHANISM
The Solution in a Nutshell
X-BIONIC® Partialkompression® utilizes the advantages of compression without neglecting cooling.
