Compression apparel worn after effort HELPS recover whether recovery is active or passive, not to the same extent however

• Passive recovery = complete rest, no muscular activity, seated while travelling by car, plane or train plane, standing still or stamping

• Active recovery = light muscular activity such as walking or relaxing (ex: in front of the television) not more than 3 hours.

In almost all sports or workouts specific parts of the body are most of the time put on test:calves, thighs, and arms. Compressport® has designed specific compression clothing for specific muscles.

The R2V2 is a new and fresher version of the original R2 calf sleeve, primarily designed for effort but subsequently used for recovery as well. It does not compress around the foot. And hence can be used for active recovery or short passive rest not exceeding 3 hours.
