Partial Kompression - A new benchmark in compression technology.
Compression improves muscle uptake of oxygen and nutrients, reduces muscle vibrations and improves recovery. Mechanical pressure can however negatively influence the blood circulation. If no sweat remains on the skin, the blood cannot be cooled and the body's cooling system does no longer work properly.
Partial Kompression by X-BIONIC® utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting 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 37 °C. X-BIONIC® Partial Kompression applies targeted pressure on 1mm 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. Partial Kompression uses the skin as a surface for cooling and, thus, can take advantage of the body’s personal micro-climate for optimising performance.
- Reduction of muscle vibrations
- Improved oxygen and nutrient supply to the muscles
- Faster recovery
The scientific proof:
In a scientific study the University of Verona, Research Centre for Bioengineering and Motor Sciences, compared the effectiveness of different types of compression clothing. The results show that X-BIONIC® Partial Kompression is superior to full surface compression. View the results

X-BIONIC® Partial Kompression
(1) Pressure on ridges
Partial Kompression applies targeted pressure on 1mm wide ridges. Between the ridges are compression-free areas.
(2) Blood vessels and capillaries under the skin
Compression guaranteed 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 Partial Kompression, 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.
