Infrared is a type of radiant energy. It's invisible to the human eye but we can feel it as heat. This is why infrared therapy is often done by emitting infrared light onto the body. Infrared light increases the production of nitric oxide, a vital signaling molecule that is important for the health of blood vessels. Basically, infrared light improves circulation which has a number of benefits. Also, infrared therapy improves the action of the mitochondria within cells, this triggers the growth and repair of new muscle cells and tissues. In other words, infrared light can speed up the repair process after a muscle injury.
True Graduated Compression
True graduated compression is applied to garments like compression socks, sleeves, and tights. It's defined as true graduated compression when the greatest degree of compression is at the bottom (usually the ankle) and the level of compression gradually decreases up the garment. This profile of compression is vitally important in medical compression garments and athletic compression garments to promote healthy blood flow and improve the function of the venous system. This proper profile of pressure applies the safest and most effective amount of pressure to your veins to increase their efficiency of delivering deoxygenated blood back to your heart. Thus, this increased blood circulation will result in a quicker return of fresh oxygen and nutrients back out of the heart and into your extremities, resulting in a reduction of swelling, risk of blood clots, and quicker healing of torn tissues or muscles.
Smart infrared is delivered to the body through tiny ceramic particles that CEP has embedded into the yarn in these socks. These particles capture the heat your body naturally emits and converts it into infrared. Mimicking a mirror, it reflects this back onto you, turning your body into it's own infrared generator. CEP has developed the perfect graduated compression profile for recovery. Pairing this technology with Smart Infrared creates an all in one powerful recovery tool.
