CEP Activating Compression Sportswear
CEP COMPRESSION – Medically Based. Athlete Driven.
CEP compression is the sports and lifestyles division of medi®. CEP products are developed in collaboration with renowned scientists and sports physicians, and are built to the exact standards of medi that feature true, graduated compression. CEP products offer a range of Smart Technology and Clima Technology that make the sportswear more enjoyable for high-performance athletes and amateurs alike. The benefits of our signature medi compression technology sets CEP apart from other “compression” on the market because our distinctive profile is scientifically proven to optimize prevention, performance and recovery.
How Does It Work?
A precise compression profile supplies fresh oxygen and nutrients to performing muscles. This improvement in blood circulation activates muscles, reducing muscle soreness following exercise.
With CEP, you can minimize the risk of injury with enhanced proprioceptive arch and ankle stabilization specifically optimized for high-impact workouts and sports.
CEP allows for improved blood circulation stimulation and also adds an extra boost of energy while increasing endurance. With climate and moisture management that will keep feet dry and your shoes fitting better, activity done in CEP compression will be enhanced and vastly improved.
If you want to minimize muscle vibration that causes fatigue, shin splints, and calf cramps with enhanced stabilization that protects tendons and ligaments, look no further than CEP compression. Coordination and balance will also be improved with the activation of skin receptors that lead to a heightened sense of position.
Lastly, CEP compression provides a supply of fresh oxygen and nutrients that ultimately increases resting blood flow and accelerates regeneration.
Our recovery products feature precise graduated compression that improves microvascular circulation. It is best used with limited access to modalities and travel.
What technology is featured in CEP?
CEP compression features both Smart and Clima technology, providing a balanced blend of materials for warm and cold temperatures that perfectly adapts to any unique athletic challenge.
Yarns with bioactive minerals reflect the body’s own infrared radiation and support natural recovery processes through improved microcirculation.
Smart Silicone pads
The special silicone pads provide relief to targeted areas with a deep tissue massaging effect. They dynamically adapt to your movement.
The carbon-infused yarn gives the socks extreme strength with high elasticity though they are also super lightweight, keeping you cool.
The polyamide/spandex blend guarantees a perfect fit and maximum freedom of movement. The fabric wraps around your body for superior wearing comfort.
Smart Wingtech stripes
Precisely positioned activation points on the back gently provide sensorimotor stimulation that encourages you to maintain an upright posture. This trains the muscles and permanently enhances your posture.
A balanced blend of materials for warm and cold temperatures that seamlessly adapts to you. Hydrophilic materials will ensure rapid moisture-wicking and unmatched wearing comfort. Integrated filament yarns make the fabric extremely durable.
Ultralight Socks feature a thin fabric with excellent wicking properties, so your feet stay cool and dry. The thinly padded foot section ensures ultimate comfort and direct contact in close-fitting shoes.
Merino Socks combine the comfortable wearing characteristics of merino wool with the effectiveness of high-quality polyamide fibers. This creates optimum body temperature, unique moisture management and enhanced durability.
High-tech yarns feature excellent moisture-wicking properties. To keep your feet warm when it is cold outside, the entire inside of the sock is equipped with a plush surface that functions as an insulation layer.
How to choose and use compression sportswear?
CEP compression sportswear has evolved from the original 2007 line of one run sock and one ski sock. Today, the CEP product portfolio covers an array of different sports with socks, calf sleeves, orthopedic sleeves, tights and shorts, and shirts based on input from scientists, professional athletes and designers.
When choosing your perfect CEP compression product, consider where and how much support is needed during your specific activity. The more coverage in the sock, the more support will be provided.
Compression Socks & Calf Sleeves:
CEP compression socks come in multiple lengths, offering varying support needs. These socks provide exceptional comfort thanks to an anatomical fit and enhanced moisture management.
- Achieves 20-30 mmHg of compression at the ankle and graduate to a consistent 15-18 mmHg over the calf muscle with 15-20 mmHg targeted compression in feet
- Helps prevent shin splints by reducing vibrations and keeping the calf stabilized
- Helps prevent calf cramps
- Helps support foot arch and stabilizes ankle
- Great for intense activity and can be worn at rest/lower intensity activites
For athletes, staying fit and healthy is the highest priority. Our high-tech orthopedic compression products protect and stabilize your body. These products are available in sleeves and braces with an anatomical fit that promotes healthy circulation and reduces swelling, while comfortable enough to be worn during activity. That means more support, less risk of injury, and improved circulation for faster recovery and stamina.
These products feature a fully graduated compression profile that increases blood flow by moving deoxygenated blood back to the heart where it can be recharged. Perfect for wear after an intense workout, between performance and during travel.
CEP Apparel Products:
The CEP Training collection keeps you focused and comfortable with enhanced freedom of movement. They feature an ideal shaping effect for enhanced body awareness and breathable moisture-wicking materials. The compression shorts and tights improve blood flow and offer support in specific areas like quads, hamstrings and calves to enhance your performance.
