CEP compression sportswear contains a one-of-a-kind level of compression expertise: six decades of research and development on the effects of
compression are integrated into every CEP product. This advanced stitching technology "made by medi", the specialists in medical compression, allows the compression thread to be precisely incorporated into the circular knitted material.
The Result: Greater Performance, Longer Endurance, Faster Recovery
Regardless if you're wearing CEP before, during, or after exercise, their products are your perfect partner for maximizing performance and recovery.
Medi compression is synonymous with innovation, technology, and expertise in medicine and sport with competence that dates back to 1951.Additus+ System
The Additus+ System, individually for each type of sport, combines compression and functionality, thus the products provide maximum impact and maximum comfort - no matter what sort of exercise.Recovering+ System
The Recovering+ System guarantees optimum physical comfort and the fastest possible regeneration before and after sport to ensure absolute comfort and the fastest possible recovery between matches and training sessions.
The highest standards of quality "made in Germany", "Oko-Tex Standard 100" certification, and the scientifically tested performance complete the profile of CEP products and make them uncompromisingly unique and capable of being experienced.
Convince yourself of the uniqueness of the brand and its products!
Medical professionals have long recommended compression for patients looking to improve blood circulation and overall leg health.
Backed by Medi's 60+ years of experience, CEP uses the science behind medical compression to help athletes maximize performance and recovery.
For the athlete, improving arterial blood flow is the key to peaking performance. CEP compression socks apply consistent compression to the calf, allowing the arterial walls to relax and the flow of oxygen-rich blood to increase by up to 40%. More oxygen means more power during performance and a faster recovery.
Graduated medical grade compression that is tighter at the ankle improves vein health by reducing the veins' diameter and pushing de-oxygenated blood back to the heart (See diagram picture above).
CEP compression socks have been scientifically proven to improve blood flow, allowing athletes to reach higher speeds using less energy.
Cooling effect when damp!
Coolmax synthetic materials produce a cooling effect when wet from sweat or direct water absorption. This thermal reading (See Heat Image from Heat Generation Study picture above) shows an ankle sock vs. a damp CEP sock. You see the leg is much cooler with CEP.
According to the Heat Generation Study, CEP's use of performance yarns quickly transports moisture away from the skin. By moving moisture to the outside of the garment evaporation is increased, reducing the temperature by as much as 7 degrees Fahrenheit.

Proven to Reduce Injury
- Shin Splints: Reduces vibration, increases oxygen, and promotes healing.
- Calf Cramps: Increases oxygen to optimize muscles, removes lactic acid.
- Achilles Issues: Increases oxygen to the Achilles; padding prevents damage.
- Pulled Muscles: Increases blood flow to increase warmth in the muscles.
- Traveling Issues: Graduated compression prevents venous reflux and pooling.
CEP vs. Competitors: Not all Compression is Created Equal
With all of the choices in compression sportswear these days, it can be hard to decide what product you should buy. How can you know if what is being offered is a "gimmick" or a truly effective performance tool?
Graduated Compression: Tighter in the ankle, looser in the calf--brings blood back to the heart.
CEP Compression levels are medically tuned for maximum performance. They measure calf circumference to ensure proper compression. The compression on the calf is lower to effectively target the arteries and allow proper blood flow back to the heart, while the compression in the ankle penetrates deep veins to push blood back to the heart. Plus, CEP socks are anatomically correct with left and right feet.

Competitor Brands Compression
Incorrect Compression: Tighter in the calf, looser in the ankle--blood pools in the leg.
Competitor products lack proper compression design. They may say the socks are "graduated", but when you put them on the compression is greater in the calf than the ankle.
Think about that: if the socks squeeze tighter at the calf then the socks will promote blood flow toward the ankle rather than the heart. This can hinder performance, recovery and in some cases cause more harm than good. Other products measure by shoe size or simply are not made using any anatomical measurements and designs. The result can be compression designs that are the opposite of what they should be or compression that is not tight enough to help you.

CEP has a 30 Day Comfort Guarantee and a 6 Month Compression Guarantee
The CEP compression socks and sportswear require careful washing to protect the fibers and preserve the performance-enhancing effect and in-wear-comfort.
- Wash the CEP compression socks and sportswear after use
- Wash in machine, delicates cycle, 40 degrees Celsius, or 104 degrees Fahrenheit
- Do not use bleach
- May be dried at a low temperature in tumbler dryer
- Never allow to dry in direct sunlight or on a radiator
- Do not iron
- Do not dry clean
CEP recommends the use of mild detergent when washing garments.
