Sigvaris Athletic Recovery Socks
Next year, you'll likely find Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts sporting one of Sigvaris' latest product in its new line of Active Therapy compression socks: the Athletic Recovery sock.
Sigvaris struck a deal with the Colts to wear the recovery socks during their 2010 - 2011 season, putting their product to a real test with professional athletes.
From the announcement:
"We are very excited about our partnership with the Indianapolis Colts. Not only will the Colts help us grow the SIGVARIS name in the sport compression market, but SIGVARIS will also have the chance to provide a product which will help professional athletes optimize performance through faster recovery," said Jason Kern, product manager for SIGVARIS North America.
The Indianapolis Colts finished off the 2009 - 2010 Season playing in the superbowl, and broke the record last season for the most regular season gamse than any other NFL team has ever won. The Colts have also made the playoffs in 9 of the past 10 years.
Compression is useful for active athletes as a post-game and post-practice sock. Graduated compression provides support therapy for athletes by helping flush out lactic acid from he muscles that build-up during exercise. This helps legs recover faster, reducing aching, swelling, or pain.
SIGVARIS has worked out several partnerships including the Road Runner's Club of America, USProTri, Souther Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada.
