Knapman Zoned Compression Shirts



Neck pain

Knapman compression shirts help prevent neck problems by stimulating a good and active posture.


Back problems

The targeted compression zones in the compression shirt encourage an active posture, which can prevent many injuries and complaints such as back problems.



Lower back complaints

The compression shirt gives extra support to the lower back, so back problems can be prevented.



Shoulder complaints

Shoulder complaints are less likely to occur thanks to the support provided by the compression shirt. The targeted compression zones in the shirt encourage an active posture; shoulders back and back straight.






Abdominal muscles

Targeted compression zones support the abs. This improves the core stability of the body, which can prevent injuries. In addition, it stimulates an active attitude.


The Knapman Zoned Compression Shorts 45%, with patented Knapman 'Zoned Compression' technology, has a positive effect on groin complaints.

"Golf is all about being stable at the core of the body. A few key words that have helped me to play to a handicap of 7 are: trust, flexibility and a natural uncomplicated swing.

Since wearing Knapman, both my swing and scores have become more stable. I trust more in my natural swing that I can carry out without effort and force.

The panels in the back of the shirt ensure a perfect backswing. My body is wound up like an elastic band. When I come into the downswing I feel my body remaining stable. The impact is purer.
While walking the 18 holes I notice that the Knapman shirt gives my back great support. The shirt ensures that I don’t have a bare back while taking my swing. I walk more upright and even my putting has improved due to the stability of my lower back.

I definitely notice the ventilation of the shirt and that the material is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I can’t imagine playing without Knapman now.

It sounds contradictory but after a round of golf I’m less tired and have better scores."

Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to test the properties of the new Knapman shirt (in the past I have tested similar shirts by other brands). I noticed directly that the material of the shirt is of a very high quality, it is soft to the touch and comfortable.
The shirts are a perfect fit. The material is thin and therefore invisible under a polo shirt. The material retains its shape and form even after multiple washes.

Active properties
The posture-improving quality of Knapman products is immediately evident. More so than by other brands.
In actual practice, I see a lot of pain complaints as a result of the wrong posture or the wrong use of the support and motion mechanisms of the body. This can lead to chronic pain. For example, disorders, such as a hernia, are often caused by the wrong use of muscles. By wearing Knapman these complaints can be reduced.

The targeted compression zones in, for example, the back area, straighten the body up. As soon as the body diverts from the ideal posture, it receives a neurophysiological impulse with a similar reaction to that achieved by taping.

While wearing Knapman compression clothing, the neurophysiological system is on a ‘learning curve’ so that the effects are even visible after a prolonged time. In addition, the compression clothing influences the overall coordination of the body in a positive way.

Of all the brands of compression wear tested to date, the Knapman products have given the best results.

Physiotherapy and manual therapy can in daily life be complemented by wearing Knapman compression clothing.

Extremely suited to correcting posture problems and to preventing damage to the support and motion mechanisms of the body over a long period.
