What are the benefits of Tommie Copper compression wear for the lower extremities?

The most important thing to remember is that compression products are only beneficial when they are being worn.  If they are uncomfortable, bulky and can only be worn for short periods of time, they will not be very effective.  That is why all Tommie Copper products are manufactured using a proprietary compression fabric that by design is so comfortable you may forget you are wearing it.

Compression helps stabilize and support muscles.  Gravity can cause a build-up of fluid in the muscles and surrounding tissue, not only from overuse or repetitive movements, but also during and after exercise. This increased swelling may result in limited mobility and stiffness due to inflammation. Compression helps provide support for tired, sore legs.

Are there any potential issues from wearing the fabric used in Tommie Copper products?

In rare cases people may have an allergic reaction, if this happens, stop wearing them immediately.
