FAQ

 

What is the difference between the Compression Leg Sleeves (Item #6055), the Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve (Item #6045), and the Ultra Compression Leg Sleeves (Item #6057)?

The compression leg sleeves and shin splint/calf compression sleeve are the same great product. The only difference is in the quantity. The compression leg sleeves (item #6055) are sold in a pair - i.e. two sleeves in total. The shin splint/calf compression sleeve (item #6045) is sold as a single unit - i.e. only one sleeve. The ultra compression leg sleeves are similar to these two products, except they do have more compression and therefore provide a tighter fit. Most people who are new to compression tend to prefer the compression leg sleeves over the ultra compression leg sleeves.

Your products do not feel as tight as some other brands I’ve tried. Am I getting enough compression?

In the world of compression, more is not necessarily better. Too much compression can restrict blood flow, casing adverse effects. Realizing this, Zensah has created their apparel with the optimal amount of compression to serve the needs of athletes.

Do I need to know mmHg level?

No! Zensah products are produced with athletes in mind. The mmHg level of each product is designed to enable our athletes to perform at their best. Our products are created with the knowledge that too much compression generates diminishing returns while too little compression results in the muscles not getting enough oxygenated blood flow. Additionally, the Zensah® running compression socks are the first and only sock to incorporate ProGrade Compression which is the optimal amount of compression to enhance an athlete's performance.
