About iM Sports Sleeves
We've been perfecting our iM Sports Compression & Sun Protection Sleeves since 2008. Each sleeve is stitched with AMERICAN MADE quality.
The result is one of the most comfortable, breathable and durable sports compression sleeves you'll ever wear. Our sleeves block 98% of UV rays, wick away moisture and the "no slip" elastic gripper keeps them firmly in place.
Our built in gripper provides the majority of the compression. Sports compression sleeves can aid in injury recovery & reduce soreness after exercise by improving circulation.

Why Sports Compression Sleeves?
Sports compression sleeves are designed to squeeze blood vessels causing them to open forcefully. This allows more oxygenated blood to reach compressed muscles which helps lower your heart rate. Compression sleeves have actually been in existence for over 60 years and were originally intended to treat venous disorders like thrombosis. A 1987 study in the American Journal of Medicine found that compression garments lowered blood-lactate levels and blood pooling. Both blood lactates and blood pooling can cause swelling and reduce performance. Lactic acid builds up in the bloodstream during intense exercise and causes muscle soreness. Another study in the 2007 Journal of Sports Science had a study group of males wear compression apparel during 10K time trials and found that muscle soreness was significantly reduced by wearing compression sleeves.
