The Bauerfeind sports compression sleeves for the upper leg allow your thighs and hamstrings to receive a better supply of oxygen, perform more efficiently, and recover more quickly.
Due to the added circulation and increased supply of oxygen from Bauerfeind's unique gradient compression, your sensorimotor function is improved. This helps you improve your performance during athletic activities.
Your muscles warm up more quickly thanks to the improved circulation, meaning they are better protected against injury. A reduction in muscle vibrations also assists in reducing muscle fatigue.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
