Developed with physiotherapists from top sports

The groin pants were developed in collaboration with Han Tijshen, physiotherapist at football club N.E.C. Nijmegen.

Han: "As a physiotherapist at N.E.C. I work on injury prevention on a daily basis. I have been looking for innovative products for years, especially for groin and hamstring injuries. I am proud to have been able to contribute to the development of this product."

Unique 45% compression value


Knapman's 45% compression is unique and unbeatable. Even physiotherapists value this unique effect of compression clothing because of its high compression value.

Wich gives optimal stability to the muscles due to the high compression value, with as a result less muscle damage.

Faster recovery and preventive effect on groin injuries

The compression shorts have a preventive effect on groin injuries. The compression provides extra stability in the thigh muscles.

This limits muscle vibrations, so that less energy is lost and less muscle damage occurs. We get reactions from athletes who, thanks to Knapman, have less (or even no) problems with muscle pain.
