our legs deserve a soothing rest after a strenuous workout or day at work? The BLACKROLL® COMPRESSION BOOTS help your legs to reduce soreness, relax your muscles, reduce swelling and relieve heavy legs by promoting blood circulation. The gentle pressure and massaging action that compression boots provide can help you relieve stress and take your relaxation to the next level, all from the comfort of your couch.
During energy production, metabolic waste products are produced in the body. These have to be transported away via the blood and our lymphatic system.
Metabolic waste products such as lactate are flushed out of the muscles during compression massage, thus accelerating the recovery process. The compression promotes blood circulation in your feet and legs and improves your mobility immediately after use. Thanks to the compact and lightweight design with internal tubing, our COMPRESSION BOOTS are ready to use anywhere. With the convenient storage bag, you can easily take the compression boots with you and enjoy a relaxing compression massage - even on the go.
The COMPRESSION BOOTS work with intermittent pneumatic compression. This is the scientific term for the pulsating pressure that is applied to the legs with the help of inflatable cuffs. In this process, the air spaces are divided into different chambers that alternately fill with air and deflate again. In the BLACKROLL® COMPRESSION BOOTS, 5 air chambers have been integrated, which overlap and thus enable a gapless 360° compression massage.
This creates pressure at various points on the legs to promote circulation and lymphatic flow, which can help reduce inflammation, remove metabolic waste products and accelerate the healing process. The use of pneumatic compression shoes can also help prevent blood clots by improving venous return and reducing congestion in the lower extremities.
For the optimal fit of the COMPRESSION BOOTS, we recommend that you measure your inner leg length. Stand upright against a wall and clamp an object (e.g. a book) between your legs. It is best to do the test with tight-fitting clothing so that the object sits exactly in your crotch. Now measure the length from the floor to the top of the object and then select the appropriate size based on your inside leg length.
Inside leg length <81cm: Size S
Inside leg length 81-88cm: size M
Inside leg length >88cm: Size L
When and how should I use compression boots?
In general, it is best to use COMPRESSION BOOTS in a lying or sitting position. Ideally, your feet should be positioned no lower than your pelvis so that the BOOTS don't have to work against gravity. If it feels good, you can also elevate your legs.
Use after sports: Use the COMPRESSION BOOTS after a workout to boost recovery in your legs and prevent muscle soreness. A 30 to 60 minute application of the compression boots at medium to high intensity improves blood circulation, promotes lactate breakdown and ensures faster recovery. With this, you can raise the quality of your recovery.
Use before sports: The boots can also be used before a workout to increase circulation in your legs and improve mobility. Also ideal if you have spent the day mainly sitting. This is the best way for athletes to prepare themselves for training. Use the BOOTS before a workout for 15 to 30 minutes at low to medium intensity.
Use for recovery: Even if you don't have a workout, you can use the COMPRESSION BOOTS to support your recovery. For example, to reduce swelling, relieve pain or eliminate muscle tension. You can also use the compression boots as an additional support for lymphatic drainage. Use the massager for 30 to 60 minutes at medium to high intensity.
No matter which program you choose, the COMPRESSION BOOTS always start with an initial filling of the air chambers. This is important so that the COMPRESSION BOOTS adapt ergonomically to your legs. The initial filling takes about 3 minutes. Then the selected program starts. If it gets too much for you, you can trigger immediate pressure relief at the touch of a button.
