"I travel and train/play a lot, so recovery and reducing muscle fatigue is important. Since I use Knapman during traveling, I leave the plain with fresh legs. For example, on my flight from Luxembourg to Australia, to play ATP Tournament in Sydney, I wore the Knapman Compression Tights. I clearly noticed a difference by wearing these Tights and it helped me to arrive in Australia with fresh legs after a 20 hour flight.


Any percentage of improvement I can gain is very important for me. And Knapman is helping me."

Marcel Bogaart

Captain of the Dutch Padel team

As a fanatic sporter I demand the maximum from myself. This sometimes results in small injuries to the shoulder and hamstring.

I am 41 years old and play the sport Padel (a cross between tennis and squash). This is an intensive sport where there is much turning of the body and intensive use of the (upper) legs and upper torso.
For a while now I’ve been using the Knapman shorts and shirts. Due to this I am able to play without injury and get the maximum from my sport. I notice that my upper legs and upper torso are well supported which results in a stronger and fitter feeling.

At this moment I couldn’t do without the Knapman products and I would recommend them to everyone!

"My brother introduced me to Knapman compression wear. I’ve played tennis for years and after a quick sprint I sometimes injure myself. I’m not the youngest anymore and suffer now and again from backache. My brother advised me to try Knapman compression wear.

Now I wear the compression shorts and shirt during a game of tennis. I can play tennis pain-free again!"


Gert van der Burg

Sport physiotherapist

I would like to share our first impressions of the Knapman compression wear.

We were searching for quite some time for compression wear for use during sport where the strain on the muscles occurs in the core region, the combination of back muscles, abdomen muscles and the hip-gluteus maximus region.
Our positive experience with compression therapy for the lower leg and foot with compression stockings, with both a preventive effect and for use in the case of muscle injury, have lead to this search.
We have used Knapman compression wear for a few of our patients who suffer from lower back complaints, where the pressure on the back causes problems during sport.
The sports played were golf and field hockey. The motivation for wearing compression clothing is mainly due to the improved blood circulation, the increase in stability given, the improved muscle stamina and the decrease in muscle pain.
These effects are known when wearing compression stockings and I can confirm that this is also the case for Knapman compression wear.

Although, in the first instance, this clothing is referred to as figure-correcting, I am of the opinion that the positive effect on back strain should be definitely stated. Our patients reported experiencing an obvious decrease in fatigue in the core region during sport. They pointed out that they felt extra support in the lower back region which led to an improved posture. The good thermoregulation was also a positive quality.

We shall advise our patients with complaints in the core region to wear compression clothing during sport. Knapman meets our demands for the correct clothing.
