Do the sleeve properties work best when worn for a specified amount of time? Say, one hour vs. four hours? 2017-02-03T15:53:13+00:00

There is no specific amount of time for it to be worn, but four hours of wearing the sleeve is more helpful for the joint than just wearing it for an hour. Remember, the key is to wear it as long as your body is comfortable wearing it.

Does the seam go inside or outside the joint? 2017-02-03T15:53:32+00:00

The seam can be worn on the back or side of the joint depending on where you want the logo to appear. The logo is just opposite the seam. Just make sure you are wearing it comfortably and the compression on the joint is just about right, not too tight and not too lose.

Would the sleeve help my joint the next day if I wore them overnight? 2017-03-02T14:44:05+00:00

It will definitely help your joint pain the next day if worn overnight. The light compression offered by the sleeve along with its copper technology enhances blood circulation and oxygenation of the muscles and joints; therefore helps avoid injuries during exercise, and help avoid muscle stiffness and soreness after the physical activity. The compression brought about by the sleeve will even give you a good night’s sleep!

How long should I wear my compression sleeve? 2017-02-03T15:54:05+00:00

CopperJoint® products can be worn all day and all night for rejuvenating relief, improved circulation, and faster muscle recovery. All of our compression products feature a lightweight design with anti-odor technology, moisture wicking, anti-chafe seaming for comfortable wear for any activity. We recommend wearing our products during sleep and light to intense physical activity.

How it works and level of stability? 2017-03-02T14:46:40+00:00

For the level of stability, the sleeve is designed to give you light support to make you move better and making your joint more secure and feel better. Other sleeves can be quite heavy – that is why we have designed a sleeve that can be light on the skin but at the same time provide support. To clarify, CopperJoint sleeve provides light support and not restrictive support like braces or neoprene sleeves. Compared to a neoprene sleeve, it offers much less support and stability BUT with a neoprene sleeve you are very restricted in your movements. This makes your muscles get lazy and rely too much on the stability given by the neoprene sleeve.

Do I wear these before having pain as a preventative? Do I wear them during a workout? Do I wear them only when my joints begin to hurt? 2017-03-03T06:36:39+00:00

To answer all these questions: Yes! Yes! And Yes! Wear them even if the joint still isn’t hurting! The best way to maximize the sleeve is to wear it before, during and after your workout. You can also practically use it any time of the day since it: 1) feels great; 2) is odorless (due to the antibacterial characteristic of the copper infused within the fabric); 3) does not restrict movements (light material); 4) does not get hot (thanks to our copper infused nylon, higher temperature is tolerated as compared to other simple nylon compression sleeves).
