CEP Compression
Sportswear
    Our Mission
    Every athlete benefits from proper compression.

    Developed by medi, a WORLD LEADER in medical compression technology, CEP takes sportswear to the next
    level. By providing additional oxygen to the muscles, our compression socks and apparel are scientifically
    proven to improve athletic performance while shortening recovery time.

    Setting the standard for compression sportswear, CEP has created a whole new market for sports specialty
    retailers: performance enhancing sports clothing with targeted compression.

    Together with our customers and partners, it is our goal to lead the compression sportswear market by developing
    innovative products that give every athlete the edge they are looking for.




    Compression 101
    Medical professionals have long recommended compression for patients looking to improve blood circulation and
    overall leg health. Backed by medi’s 50+ years of experience, CEP uses the science behind medical compression to
    help athletes maximize performance and recovery.


    ARTERIES
    For the athlete, improving arterial blood flow is the key to peaking performance.
    CEP compression socks apply patented consistent compression to the calf,
    allowing the arterial walls to relax and the flow of oxygen-rich blood to increase
    by up to 40%. More oxygen means more power during performance and a
    faster recovery.

    VEINS
    Graduated medical grade compression that is tighter at the ankle improves vein
    health by reducing the veins’ diameter and pushing de-oxygenated blood back to
    the heart.


    What does this mean for the athlete?

    Medical grade compression in the ankle with 24mmHg that gradually decreases
    to 18mmHg and stays consistent in the calf. These compression levels target the
    arteries to increase arterial flow up to 40% during activity, which leads to a better
    performance and recovery. With this medically tuned compression design you also
    penetrate deep veins and fight gravity to Increase blood flow back to the heart.

OR FOR dISTANCES gREATER ThAN A hAlF-MARAThON – Because gravity
pushes blood down, not covering your foot could create some ankle swelling. Our
socks are therefore the better choice for long distance runners.

The sleeves should also not be worn when standing or traveling for long periods
of time.
