Stick, ball, racket,… lark!

Thanks to products adapted to your needs, accompanied by sound advice, you will be able to practice your favorite physical activities and improve your performance, while enjoying optimal comfort at each session.

For impact sports such as running, soccer or tennis, several products can improve or increase your level of comfort during their practice. For runners, knee braces are recommended because they provide knee support and range of motion to your joints, maximizing your comfort and allowing you to fully concentrate on your run. For tennis enthusiasts, wearing hand or wrist orthoses works the same way and allows your joints to stabilize them to optimize your comfort and relieve them during repetitive movements.

For low impact sports, including golf, swimming, walking or cycling, it is also beneficial to opt for products that significantly increase your comfort throughout your practice. For example, on long active days, wearing orthopedic shoes and plantar orthotics provides the necessary support for your legs and feet. By redistributing your body weight evenly, they improve your stability and balance and reduce muscle fatigue.

 

Good practices for a healthy, active and comfortable lifestyle

  • It doesn’t matter what sport you prefer; in the water, on land, in a team or individually, it is important to follow these training recommendations and incorporate them into your sports routine: Start with a progressive training: everything in time; progressive training allows your body to gradually adjust to any new physical activity. Also consider adding stretches at the end of your workouts to avoid muscle soreness or to walk like a penguin the day after a new workout!
  • Incorporate Recovery Days into Your Routine: Recovery days are as important as workouts as they allow your body to recover and prevent injury or overtraining. For active recovery, opt for wearing compression stockings or clothing; By making it easier to get oxygen into the blood and improving blood circulation, compression stockings and garments allow your body to recover faster. Be ready, you will start again!
  • Respect your limits: In the same vein, it is important to go at your own pace and respect your limits, as this helps prevent the onset of additional injuries or stiffness. Remember, participating in physical activity keeps your body healthy, not causing health problems! Playing your favorite sport shouldn’t come at the expense of your comfort. By equipping yourself with the right products, you will be able to perform every movement in comfort, while preventing injury.
