The Compression Benefits

+ IMPROVED BLOOD CIRCULATION:

EC3D TECHNOLOGY direct blood flow from capillaries to blood vessels, enhancing oxygen exchange between the blood and muscles. This exchange primes the body for maximum efficiency and endurance.

+ BETTER POSTURE AND BALANCE:

Your posture is enhanced when your muscles are cinched into place, and with a good posture comes better stability.

+ REDUCED TOXINS LEFT IN MUSCLES:

Scientific tests have proven that EC3D TECHNOLOGY reduce the accumulation of toxins in the muscles. Leaving you with less chance to have cramps during exercising and less soreness the nest day.

+ REDUCED MUSCLE OSCILLATION:

The compression zone is strategically placed around the muscles. This reduces muscle oscillation, which can cause micro-tears in the muscles.

+ INCREASED OXYGEN DELIVERY TO MUSCLES:

Strategic compression prevents blood pooling and better circulation, which in turn means better oxygenation of muscles. It will match oxygenation levels with the muscle’s energy demands.

+ REDUCED RECOVERY TIME:

Studies show that athletes who wear EC3D TECHNOLOGY for three hours or more, right after strenuous activity, experience less inflammation and muscle soreness.

+ BETTER MUSCLE ALIGNMENT:

Seamless, graduated compression hugs the muscles where it counts, aligning the musculoskeletal system and allowing for precise movements.

3 Dimensions of performance enhancement

PERFORMANCE

Rival Compression line is constructed from breathable, high-tech fibres that boost your performance without adding bulk. Rival Compression line is a smart addition to any training regimen. When worn for training or fighting, they provide better muscle alignment and stability for quicker reactions, more power and precise execution.

ENDURANCE

Suit up and stay in the game with a product range designed to improve muscle endurance and reduce the risk of injury. Rival Compression line help you push your limits by harnessing an important principle of human anatomy – when blood circulation is improved, it can more effectively deliver oxygen to working muscles and eliminate fatigue-inducing lactic acid. With more efficiency, endurance and less fatigue, you will deliver your A-game every time.

RECUPERATION

EC3D’s intelligent, medically-inspired construction helps working muscles to drain toxins and reduce muscle fatigue. With a more stable and aligned musculoskeletal structure, you experience more power and less risk of injury. Enhanced blood flow means less soreness the next day, so you are back on your feet and ready for the next challenge.

 

How does it works ?

THE PROOF IS 
IN THE PRESSURE

Compression tights, shorts, socks and shirts are becoming more and more popular among professional and non-professional athletes. Many companies claim to offer compression through their garments, but in reality you need a minimum of 15 mmHG to be considered true medical-grade compression and get the results you need.

In medicine, the millimetre of mercury (mmHG) is the “gold standard” for blood pressure measurement. EC3D’s technology the result of more than 15 years of innovative medical research, and a devotion to the active lifestyle. EC3D has put their garments to the test against other garments that claim to offer compression, and the results are not surprising. EC3D technology as the best graduated compression of all. Those who do have good amount of compression haven’t calibrated their compression resulting in a reverse compression. Meaning, they have, for example, more compression at the calf (28 MmHg ) than at the ankle ( 20 MmHg), which can be very dangerous for people that do need blood flow enhancement. This can cause a garo effect and make  your legs feel more tired. 

THE RESEARCH

The principle of graduated compression, precisely measured in units of mmHG, is based on the latest research in vascular medicine. Various studies have proven that compression garments help improve muscle oxygenation and blood flow down to extremities.banner research

Why we work with EC3D

Rival works with the best in their class to bring the best products in the boxing/combat industry. EC3D is one of them.

EC3D optimal compression technology is the result of 15 years of state-of-the-art technological innovation for the medical field woven with a devotion to the active lifestyle. This Montreal-based company – specializing in three-dimensional seamless compression garments – was established in 2005 by brothers Gilbert and Daniel Ayoub – cofounders of Gildan, the world’s largest T-shirt manufacturer – as well as seamless knitting expert Michelle Simon and her daughter Carine Villeneuve

Working with surgeon Dr. Jean-Raymond Spenard – originally designed their seamless zoned compression wear for medical use after cosmetic surgery. Gilbert, a lifelong athlete, realized EC3D’s athletic applications.

Since injury is an inevitable part of sport, he and his partners focused on the most common injuries to design seamless zoned compression garments that optimize the biomechanics of the entire body – rather than merely isolating the injured muscle. The result is an anatomically specific calibrated compression garment that fits like a second skin for a smooth transition from injury to recovery.
