"As a starting runner, I was regularly confronted with lower back pain. Because I still want to work out, I started looking for a shirt that could provide extra support.
At first I thought that the Knapman shirts were only for people with an overweight problem, but now I walk twice a week for almost a year now and don't go out without my compression shirt.

I keep it full longer and besides that it gives good support, it also dresses nicely! I think many athletes will benefit from these shirts. You automatically walk upright and as a result you make more kilometers with the same effort.

3 november 2013 - The marathon of New York.

A groin injury threatens to throw a spanner in the works. Call it all off then?
One last visit to the physiotherapist is the final hope. The physiotherapist advises wearing compression shorts: a revolutionary development in the sports world.

“Wear them tomorrow in the airplane and also during the marathon. They will ease your complaints considerably” according to the  physiotherapist. So said, so done. The marathon was completed, without groin injury.

We’ve heard this story recently. We’re happy that our compression shorts helped this marathon runner to complete the New York marathon.

"Knapman is ideal for me while running on the beach. Every morning I do my exersice on the beach every year, even when it rains or storms. Knapman compression clothing keeps my muscles and kidneys warm and dry, even during intensive training. "

"In addition, the compression zones improve my posture. This makes me walk straighter and I can breathe much better while running. Even when it is freezing cold, the muscles stay warm and his skin and shirt dry after running. "

Sport physician & Expert kinesio taping

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.
