Frequently Asked Question
DFND graduated compression is the design of our garments. This helps stimulate circulation in your feet, ankles and legs. It is achieved through exerting the greatest degree of compression at the ankle, with the level of compression gradually decreasing as you move up the garment. The pressure gradient ensures that blood flows upward toward the heart instead of refluxing toward to the foot or laterally into the superficial veins. Better blood flow helps your body flush out lactic acid and other metabolic wastes which helps you perform better for longer periods. In addition improved Oxygenation reduces the effect of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and speeds up muscle repair.
FUZE is a patented antibacterial technology that is applied to DFND Compression Product products. FUZE permanently enhances fabric with odor elimination, UV refraction, faster drying, and greater cooling power.
- FUZE obliterates harmful and odor-causing pathogens by mechanically disassembling them upon contact and rendering them incapable of multiplying.
- FUZE eliminates and prevents the growth of mold and fungus
- FUZE refracts UV, which protects garments from UV degradation and enhances color fastness.
- FUZE enhances evaporation by reducing the surface tension that binds water molecules to the fabric, and FUZE fabrics evaporate 20-60% faster than identical untreated fabrics. This results in better body temperature regulation in both warm and cool condition
FUZE is permeant unlike most other antibacterial treatments the twas away and decrease efficacy when washed. FUZE technology improves with washing when dirt and softeners are removed and allow for bacteria to come in contact with FUZE faster!
FUZE is Non Toxic, Non Leaching, Non Ionic.
FUZE is Zero Wast Manufacturing and Zero Waist Application
DFND Compression is constructed with a blend of powerful proprietary circular knit fabric.
All DFND compression is Graduated and includes multiple Design Patents. By using a circular knit fabric it is superior to all others on the market. It gives you next to skin protection, maximum muscle containment and last 4x longer than a normal compression fabric.
- Prevents deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Improves Power Output
- More muscle oxygenation
- Improves Posture
- Temperature Control in hot and cold
- 50+ UV Protection
- Anti Microbial that kills 99.9% of bacteria
When you wear DFND Compression during training the compression effect prevents muscles from straining (which can cause injury) and may even treat injuries as the occur.
DFND compression provides increased circulation and oxygenation which assists with various medical complaints including arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). DFND compression also helps to improve circulation during pregnancy.
Your muscles feel tired and less powerful when they are oscillating. DFND graduated compression is designed to help keep your muscles in place, reduce the vibration and improve your awareness (proprioception). DFND compression features a patented designed to help improve your Power, Reduce your Muscle Vibration, Improve your Awareness and Reduce your Soreness.
When wearing DFND graduated compression it will force more oxygen to your muscles and will increase your blood flow which reduces significantly delayed onset muscle soreness (DVT). MRI based studies have also shown improvements in muscle recovery.
There is a big difference between the two. Many companies claim to make products in the USA which is great but the majority of times it is with fabric made from another country. Berry Compliant means it is not only Made in the USA but made with materials that are also made in the USA.
- During any type of Training or Exercise for Power, Endurance and Injury Prevention
- For Recovery after training.
- When recovering from an injury
- When Traveling to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- When working at your desk or sitting long hours for corrective posture
DFND is currently used by Special Forces in the US Military, First Responders, Olympic athletes, professional sports teams in the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, MLS. Professional Golfers, OCR Racers, Endurance Athletes and everyday Warriors looking for an edge.
The performance and recovery benefits of DFND Compression have been independently researched and tested. The scientific community recognizes that graduated compression reduces the build up of lactic acid immediately after vigorous exercising. This allows for more quicker return to normal levels and reduces the occurrence of delayed onset muscle soreness. (DOMS).
DFND Compression has multiple uses. DFND can by used in all types of water and will help to control your body temperature in cold water. It also dries fast.
YES. DFND Compression improves your circulation which helps your body to regulate temperature whether it's Hot or Cold outside, the wicking is built in.
YES. DFND Compression improves blood flow which help keeps your extremities warm. Built in wicking also stops sweat cooling on your skin as well. In extreme cold weather DFND Thermal Compression is works even better!
YES. Wicking moves the moisture away from your skin to the outside of the garment where it will evaporate so your skin stays dry. We use patented Anti Microbial, Moisture wicking treatment called FUZE that lasts a lifetime of the garment.
Please refer to the size guide on each style. DFND Graduated Compression is designed to fit tight but comfortable, If you are in between sizes it is recommended to size up to the larger size.
It is recommended to Hand Wash and Hang Dry your DFND Compression. You can machine wash and tumble dry low. Heat transfers my start to peel if you tumble dry but this will not affect the power of your Compression Tights.
