The 8th Gear® brand is born of a vision in which the human body is viewed as an efficiently-tuned performance engine. Just as a high-speed performance engine requires proper fuel, tuning, and maintenance, the human body requires proper nutrition, equipment, and training to maximize its ability to perform at its peak levels.
Medical/Physio-research confirms the vital contributions applied compression garments deliver when implemented with muscle, athletic and endurance training. This includes overall physical performance and enhanced rapid muscle recovery, additional support for joints and muscles, protection from injury or re-injury, and aiding with swelling reduction and increased/faster blood flow speeding the release of toxins, including lactic acid, from the body through sweat and waste.
The name 8th Gear® derives from high-performance sports cars, of which most today are equipped with eight gear transmissions. These vehicles reach their eighth gear at the point when the vehicle is achieving its top or maximum performance. This is the effect of wearing 8th Gear® Compression Wear -- You Literally 'Up-Shift Your Performance'.
