ORIGIN OF BV SPORT – LEADER IN COMPRESSION SUPPORT
BV Sport, the French leader in compression of elite sports equipment for International athletes. In 1989, Dr. Serge Couzan was supervising Dr. Michaël Prüfer’s thesis on research into blood circulation problems associated with people involved in sports. Michaël Prüfer was then a multiple record holder and speed-skiing world champion. The two vascular doctors combined their specialist skills, and their research among top sportspeople invented and developed a revolutionary concept designed to improve muscular performance and to speed up recovery. They developed compression support sock that places particular pressure in the calf area to speed up the venous return, unlike standard support garments that put pressure upon the ankle. And thus the patent design of BV Sports came into being to improve recovery and performance.
BV Sport production facility produces all of the compression support ranges meeting strict specifications set by the research and development centre that includes sports physicians and textiles engineers. The complete compression support range gets manufactured using medical circular knitting machines based on the technique that enables to control the pressure applied and cut more accurately. The company-owned production facility applies a quality policy that guarantees complete traceability for optimum quality and production monitoring.
BV SPORT COMPRESSION SLEEVES – BOOSTER ELITE
The Booster Elite encourages the vertical movement of the leg muscles and soleus by reducing oscillatory movement, the source of fatigue and muscular injuries. Moreover, the BOOSTER reduces muscular vibration and improves the contraction and toning of muscles. The progressive compression improves venous return and promotes the oxygenation of muscles, tendons and ligaments during physical exertion, thus optimising athletic performance.
WOMEN’S SUPPORT COMPRESSION LEGGINGS
Specifically designed for women’s sports, these shorts improve muscle tone and reduce vibrations during effort. Thanks to their firm support, they affect the buttock muscles and the thighs, thus converting energy into a permanent micro-massage.
BV SPORT NATURE3R COLLECTION
BV Sport’s NATURE3R Collection of clothing provides excellent freedom of movement for runners, cyclists and swimmers. The high-end clothing made from light-weight fabric enhances muscular performance and increases sweat absorption during sports activities. The fabric is called Q-Nova fibre from Fulgar – the leading producer of high-tech fibres, made from 99% regenerated raw materials.
