All of Liiteguard's products are CE marked, meaning that they are medically approved.
This means that our products meet environmental, health and safety requirements.
Liiteguard's socks are compression products. There are several scientific studies demonstrating a positive effect on recovery from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), if you use compression products during, or right, after training or matches.
The compression strength of our products is continuously tested and validated by our supplier and meets the standards for compression Class 2. Class 2 compression means that all of our socks are within the category of compression with medically-studied effects.
Many athletes will unfortunately twist their ankle at some stage in their training. In the rehabilitation phase, proprioception training is important for rehabilitating ankle stability. This is particularly true for athletes with previous ankle twist injuries. In Liiteguard’s Pro-Tech Socks, silicone is inserted around the ankle in several ways to increase proprioceptive feedback. As a result, the Pro-Tech sock can help increase proprioceptive input and support increased ankle stability.

Support around the Achilles tendon is particularly advantageous for those who are suffering from sore and/or tense Achilles tendons during and after training. Support may dampen some of the impacts that challenge the Achilles tendon during running, especially on hard surfaces. Compression can also alleviate the swelling that can arise after physical activity.

Extra Achilles Tendon Compression
Liiteguard Performance Sock also have an additional compression around the Achilles tendon, which has been shown to affect Achilles tendon pain.
Liiteguard Performance Socks are made for footballers and have built-in pockets for our shin guards. This pocket allows the shin guard to remain secure during matches and training, without the use of tape. This prevents circular tightening/pinching due to adhesive tape and ensures that there are no localized restrictions of blood vessels and nerves during activity.
