Review for Zoot Women’s CompressRx Sock
ZoneRx: Specific degrees of zoned compression, tuned to each muscle group. CRx: Graduated, for compressive action that speeds bloodflow back to the heart. SynchroRx: Lightweight PolyPro and anti-microbial Silver Tech work together for a comfortable, odor-free, lasting fit. Recently, Zoot finished a six-week study investigating the efficacy of its new compression line called CompressRX. CompressRX was developed in partnership with a leading medical compression company to provide the first-ever zoned-muscle and graduated-compression line. It is through current and past research that Zoot has set out to prove that CompressRX is a viable solution for multisport athletes as both a recovery and training tool. The use of compression garments in triathlon is becoming increasingly more common among athletes as the garments have been shown to promote everything from an increase in oxygenation to a decrease in recovery time. However, findings show that current sport-based compression provides similar ranges of compression compared to a traditional running tight. Zoots CompressRx provides a much higher and more controlled level of compression than that which is currently available. Our findings from the study indicate that differences can be observed in the areas of physiological, physical, performance, and perceived exertion measures in CompressRx. Furthermore, triathlon is a sport that requires hours of training and racing and is known to cause deep muscle damage as part of a normal training regimen. That being understood, the triathletes needs to avoid chronic muscle damage to maintain consistent training and racing, and the desire to reduce the recovery time associated with such training, suggests that CompressRx would be a viable solution.
