Many people suffer from various types of knee pain. Fortunately, convenient resources exist to help alleviate or control that pain. Many studies have proven that compression knee sleeves are effective in managing knee pain and knee injuries, including pain from osteoarthritis. A study conducted in 2011 on seventy-four patients (132 knees) with symptomatic osteoarthritis were assessed by use of the Stair Climb Power Test (SCPT), and a significant difference was found between the two compared circumstances (with and without knee sleeve).

REASON #2 - INSULATED HEAT + COMPRESSION
The JungleLift knee sleeves stimulate heat, which insulates the joints, keeping them warm and ready to function properly. The heat also allows the joint to stretch and function to its full range of motion, which allows for ultimate usage. The compression allows for increased blood flow, which improves your functionality and performance, as well as decreases the rate of fatigue of your muscles. This results in quicker recovery times, allowing you to be ready for your next workout session, so you can train meaner and harder.
REASON #3 - STABILITY + SUPPORT
If you've ever trained or lifted with pair of compression knee sleeves on, you immediately feel a sense of support and stability of the joint. It will not forcibly straighten your leg, but it will aid in extension from a fully flexed position - when the knee is the most vulnerable. This also contributes to your mental focus, knowing that the joint is well supported and stable. This reduces the anxiety of injury when performing heavy lifts, allowing you to fully focus on executing proper form when lifting in any situation.
