Compression Stocking Manufacturer SIGVARIS Sponsors Employee Raising Money to Help End Alzheimer’s Disease

SIGVARIS is proud to sponsor one employee’s quest to help end Alzheimer’s disease through her participation in the Philadelphia Marathon’s Run To Remember.

PEACHTREE CITY, GA Wearing compression socks is a huge trend in sports right now. That’s why SIGVARIS is proud to announce that the company is sponsoring one of their own employee athletes who is running the Philadelphia Marathon on Nov. 20. The SIGVARIS employee (along with 99 other runners) is raising money to help end Alzheimer’s. As of today, the group has raised more than $65,000 and hopes to raise more than $100,000.

 

As one of the 100 runners raising money for the cause, Jen DiRenzo, a SIGVARIS Sales Supervisor, has been training for the event and raising money for the past several months. In addition to the money donated by SIGVARIS, OrthoStep, a medical supply store who carries SIGVARIS products in Lakewood, N.J., also donated to the cause.

 

DiRenzo and her running partner have both been using several products in SIGVARIS’ Sports Line to help them train including the Performance Sleeve, the Performance Sock and the Athletic Recovery Sock to help them recover faster.

 

“I have been training in both the sleeves and the socks all summer/fall. They have made a huge difference in how my legs feel,” DiRenzo says. “They have given my legs a ton of energy and cut down on pain after my long runs. I couldn’t imagine doing this training without these products.”  Both DiRenzo and her running partner plan to wear SIGVARIS’ newest sports product, The Performance Sleeve, during the race.

 

“Having been the global leader in medical compression therapy for the past 50 years, SIGVARIS is at the forefront of creating the most effective compression products,” says Jason Kern, product manager for SIGVARIS North America. “SIGVARIS is proud to sponsor one of our own athletes who believes in our products and is using them for training and races. SIGVARIS is also proud to donate money to help end Alzheimer’s.”

 

When an athlete slips on a SIGVARIS sports product, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout. Unlike the SIGVARIS Sports products, many other sports products do not feature “true graduated compression.”

Graduated Compression Expert SIGVARIS is Proud to Announce a New Addition to the Sports Line – The SIGVARIS Performance Sleeve

SIGVARIS is sporting a brand new product, the SIGVARIS Performance Sleeve, designed to complement the popular Athletic Recovery Sock and the Performance Sock.

SIGVARIS Performance Sleeve

PEACHTREE CITY, GA Medically endorsed SIGVARIS is proud to announce the release of the SIGVARIS Performance Sleeve into the U.S. Market. The launch marks the latest addition to the company’s sports compression products for competitive athletes and triathletes.

 The SIGVARIS Performance Sleeve allows athletes to customize their compression by providing ankle to calf compression they can wear with or without their favorite ankle socks. The sleeve features 20-30mmHg of graduated compression, is worn around the lower part of the leg, and is constructed with a waterproof, fast-drying fabric that may be worn on land or in water. The calf sleeve is tightest at the ankle and decreases in pressure going up the leg to help increase circulation during rigorous workouts.

 “Having been the global leader in medical compression therapy for the past 50 years, SIGVARIS is at the forefront of creating the most effective compression products,” says Jason Kern, product manager for SIGVARIS North America. “The SIGVARIS performance sleeve is perfect for land or water use. When we created the sports sleeve, we felt it would be the perfect addition to our Athletic Recovery Sock that was designed to help active people recover faster after a tough workout and our Performance Sock that has been popular among runners and athletes.”

 When an athlete slips on a SIGVARIS sports product, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout. Unlike the SIGVARIS Active Therapy products, many other sports products do not feature “true graduated compression.”

 The Performance Sleeve, which has already launched in Europe, is rapidly gaining popularity among runners, athletes, and triathletes worldwide.  

 SIGVARIS has several strategic sports partnerships in place with established organizations in North America, including: Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing), the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts.

SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Compression Socks is Proud to Partner with Local Area Trek Bicycle Stores For Breast Cancer Awareness

SIGVARIS, the global leader in compression therapy and DVT prevention advocate, has teamed up with two South Atlanta Trek Bicycle stores to create pink and black Athletic Recovery Socks in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.    

PEACHTREE CITY, GA. – On Oct. 8, SIGVARIS will team up with two local Trek Bicycle stores for the Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Rides in McDonough and Peachtree City. Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase special edition pink and black SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Compression Socks as a fun way to raise awareness about breast cancer.   

The events feature 10 and 25 mile family-friendly group rides. Donations and fees from the event go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The goal of the Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Rides is not only to raise funds for breast cancer research, but also to unite local communities in the effort to raise awareness about the importance of breast health in a fun, supportive environment.

For more information about these events, or to register, participants can visit the website at http://www.atlantatrek.com.

 SIGVARIS partners with several organizations each year to help raise awareness about various diseases, as well as to help educate athletes about the benefits of increased blood flow through graduated compression.

Athletes use compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. When a sportsperson slips on SIGVARIS Active Therapy socks, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout.

SIGVARIS created www.activetherapysock.com to provide consumers with information on all the socks in the Active Therapy line.

SIGVARIS has several athletic partnerships with established sports organizations including the Atlanta Falcons, the Indianapolis Colts, the New Jersey NETS, Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing).

SIGVARIS Congratulates Golfer Brittany Lincicome on Her Win at the Canadian Women’s Open

SIGVARIS was proud to cheer on Brittany Lincicome as she won the CN Canadian Women’s Tour Sunday in Quebec.

 

SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks

PEACHTREE CITY, GA – SIGVARIS, the global leader in medical compression therapy and DVT prevention advocate, applauds Brittany Lincicome on her win at the CN Canadian Women’s Open. Lincicome endorses SIGVARIS’ Active Therapy Line and practices in the SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks. 

 Lincicome’s win on Sunday makes it her fifth LPGA title, and her second win this year. “Battling it out with the world’s best golfers can be both mentally and physically exhausting,” Lincicome says. “Thanks to SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks, my legs feel as energized and ready to go on the final hole as they do on the first. With many tournaments coming down to the wire, SIGVARIS socks give me the comfort and reliability to perform at my peak ability.”

 As a tribute to such an extraordinary golfer, SIGVARIS’ Cotton Golf Sock box features Lincicome playing golf on the women’s box.

 Lincicome is not the only golfer sporting the SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks from the Active Therapy Line. In a field study of professional and recreational golfers, 86 percent of participants said their legs and/or ankles felt less tired and achy after wearing these socks, and more than 95 percent of the study participants said they would recommend these socks to a fellow golfer. The Cotton Golf Socks are available at PGA TOUR Superstores.

 A growing trend among competitive athletes is the use of compression therapy socks to help improve their game. Wearing true graduated compression, compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition can help flush out lactic acid and provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness.  

 SIGVARIS, through the Active Therapy Line of socks, has several strategic partnerships in place with established endurance sports organizations in North America, including: Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing), the Indianapolis Colts and the Atlanta Falcons.
