Frequently Asked Questions
Primarily through direct to consumer sales and a lower profit margin. We committed to bringing a high-quality, medical-grade, digital pneumatic compression device to market at a price point that all athletes can afford. We want everyone to be able to realize the benefits of improved recovery.
We use a digitally-controlled, Class 2 Medical Grade compression pump with integrated, one-touch hoses, and high-quality, long-lasting garment material. We have the broadest ranges of pump control settings to help you dial in the compression to your specific recovery needs and a lower price point. Check out our product comparison chart for additional details – link here.
The digitally-controlled compression on Circulation Mode starts at your feet and fills each of the four chambers of the leg sleeves sequentially to help increase blood circulation and clear metabolic waste more quickly than your body would normally. Since that metabolic waste is such a significant obstacle to increasing your Lactate Threshold and VO2 Max, clearing it quickly and efficiently will help speed your recovery and translate into more effective training and improved performance.
For improved recovery, we find that the best time to use Elevated Legs™ is immediately after your workout for about 30 minutes on Compression Mode. This helps to reduce soreness, increase blood circulation, and clear metabolic waste. If you are unable to use them immediately after your workout, we’ve also had positive results using them in the evening for 30 minutes or more. Elevated Legs™ can also be used as part of your warm-up. Try them for 15 – 20 minutes before a workout to increase circulation and get your muscles feeling fresh and ready to go.
We suggest wearing your Elevate Legs<sup>™</sup> over tights or pants when you can to help keep them clean and protect them from any potential long-term damage from the oils from your skin. If you do wear over your bare legs, you should clean the leg sleeves regularly with a mild cleaner to remove the oils from your body.
