INDIANAPOLIS, APRIL 30 – SIGVARIS, the global leader of graduated compression garments, is teaming up with the Indianapolis Colts NFL team to bring football fans closer to the action with the opportunity to meet player Gary Brackett for an autograph session at the 500 Festival Mini-Expo on May 7 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Indiana Convention Center.

In addition to meeting Brackett, fans will have the opportunity to win a signed Gary Brackett team jersey, no purchase necessary. At the event, fans may also purchase a pair of SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery socks, the same socks being supplied to the Indianapolis Colts football team. The Athletic Recovery compression socks are to be worn after games, practices, training sessions and during travel.

Whether it’s during the actual event, after the event, or even while traveling, athletes are making graduated compression socks part of their everyday attire. SIGVARIS is pleased to be partnering with the Indianapolis Colts to help them improve their athletic recovery post games and practices.

Wearing graduated compression socks during and after strenuous exercise or competition has been proven to help flush out lactic acid and also provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness.

“We are excited to give football fans a chance to meet Indianapolis Colts player, Gary Brackett,” says Jason Kern, SIGVARIS North America product manager. “We are thrilled that people will be given an opportunity to try the same socks being supplied to the Indianapolis Colts football team, so they may experience for themselves the benefits of wearing true graduated compression post workout.”

The Athletic Recovery Socks are made with patented drirelease and latex-free yarns with an embedded environmentally-friendly Freshguard treatment that virtually eliminates odors.

Additional Athletic Recovery features & benefits include:
• Lactic acid flush-out and relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness
• Superior Athletic Sizing Assortment, comfort and fit with 50+ years of graduated compression sock expertise
• Patented drirelease® and latex-free yarns with an embedded environmentally-friendly Freshguard® treatment that virtually eliminates odors
