Abstract [en]

Sports compression garments (SCG) have been used by athletes for years as means of enhancement of theirperformance and speed of recovery. In this research, the investigation into the effects the physical attributes ofsuitable materials and their composition and orientation in SCG have upon the amount and distribution of pressuregenerated to the underlying body was undertaken. Two different knitted fabrics suitable for compression sportgarment with different physical properties and elastic performance attributes were chosen. Experimental fabricsleeves were assembled, so that they provided different fabric strains around the circumference of the differentdiameter of cylinders they were placed on. The pressure generated by sleeves was measured using Salzmannpressure-measuring device MST MK IV and Salzmann MST 2007 software. It was determined that different materialcomposition of fabric assemblies influenced the pressure delivery of garment. However no clear relationship betweenthe fabric percentage in assembly composition and the generated pressure was established.
