about

This book presents recent research addressing the effects of different types of compression clothing on sport performance and recovery after exercise. It is also the first book that summarizes the effects of compression clothing on all main motor abilities in the context of various sports, offering a wealth of practical guidelines on how to optimize performance and recovery with the help of compression clothing.

The book examines the effects of this clothing on physiological, psychological and biomechanical parameters including endurance, speed, strength, power, and motor control. It explains the basic principles involved in the reasonable application of compression garments in connection with different kinds of exercise, and describes the essential mechanisms of how compression garments work in a reader-friendly format that addresses the needs of researchers, athletes and coaches alike.

Factors influencing the pressures applied by compression clothing (types, sizes, postures, use).

  • Influence of different compression garment types (upper body compression, lower body compression, full body compression) on exerted pressure (i.e., body regions).
  • Influence of different sizes of compression garments (undersized, recommended size and oversized) on exerted pressure
  • Influence of different postures (sitting, standing and supine) on exerted pressure of compression garments
  • Changes in applied pressures with use (is anything known?)
  • Applied pressures (and garment coverage) for interpretation of study effects or lack of effects

Effects of compression garments as a performance enhancement in endurance dom

inated exercise

  • Compression garments wore during endurance exercise.

Effects of compression on:

  • Physical performance during endurance exercise

  • Physiological parameters during exercise like blood lactate, blood pH, heart rate, oxygenation profile and respiratory parameters
  • Psychological parameters during exercise like rates of perceived exertion, perceived muscle soreness, perceived thermal sensation
  • Dr. Robert Duffield, University of Technology Sydney, Sport and Exercise Discipline Group, 15 Broadway, Ultimo NSW 2007, Sydney, Australia

    Effects of compression garments as a performance enhancement in strength and speed dominated exercise

    Effects of compression on:

    • Physical performance during exercise
    • Physiological parameters during exercise like blood lactate, blood pH, heart rate, oxygenation profile and respiratory parameters
    • Psychological parameters during exercise like rates of perceived exertion, perceived muscle soreness, perceived thermal sensation

    Effects of compression garments as a performance enhancement in balance and precision tasks

    Effects of compression on:

    • Physical performance (precision and balance during exercise)
  • Psychological parameters during exercise
  • Jessica Hill, St. Mary's University, School of Sport, Health, and Applied Science, Twickenham, United Kingdom

    Effects of compression garments as a recovery intervention. Compression garments wore subsequent to exercise. Either compression was worn during exercise and recovery or just during the recovery phase.

    Effects of compression on:

    • Physiological parameters during recovery like blood lactate, blood pH, heart rate, oxygenation profile and respiratory parameters.
    • parameters of exercise induced muscle damage, findings of muscle biopsies and different inflammatory markers
    • Psychological parameters during recovery like rates of perceived exertion, perceived muscle soreness

  • Physical performance during exercise subsequent to recovery with compression garment
  • Psychological parameters during exercise subsequent to recovery with compression garment
