The research we carry out in the garment development stages allows us to keep pushing the boundaries of technology and compression – leading to the development of dynamic gradient compression, which features in our A400 clothing, for example.
PUBLISHED RESEARCH ON SKINS
The amount of research published on the functional parameters of SKINS is unrivalled within the sports compression wear industry. So far, ten studies carried out using SKINS have been published in independently peer reviewed medical journals.
Published research of this kind has contributed to SKINS being recommended and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and qualifying for registration as a therapeutic device by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.
