Georgia - Sigvaris, the Swiss-based supplier of graduated compression hosiery has added leading American Football team the Indianapolis Colts to the list of customers for its Athletic Recovery, brand, a sports compression sock for post-game and post-practice recovery and as a travel-sock for games on the road.

Athletic Recovery is an Active Therapy graduated compression sock designed to boost endurance, improve athletic recovery and peak performance. It has been designed to help flush out the lactic acids built up in the leg muscles during exercise, as well as relieve tired, aching legs and exercise-induced muscle soreness.

The sock is is made of drirelease yarns to accelerate the water release rate of wet fabric, and includes environmentally-friendly FreshGuard to eliminate odours by blocking odour-causing sebaceous body oils from attaching to the fabric.
