Walking into a sporting goods store can be a little overwhelming given the amount of workout gear available. Each item claiming to absorb sweat more efficiently or help one recover faster or work out more comfortably. I am really intrigued by the CW-X line of clothing. This brand of gear combines methods of kinesiotape (KT) with sweat wicking technology and morphs it into compression clothing for both men and women.
As a physical therapist, I was attracted to this product since I often incorporate kinesiotape into my treatment plans. Kinesiotape is a soft, flexible tape that when applied to the skin helps to facilitate healing and promotes joint and muscle support. Compression garments, on the other hand, can be worn before, during or after work outs and has the research to back up its claim of lessening swelling. Combining the kinesiotaping method into compression clothing seems genius. The manufacturer claims studies even show an improvement in stride and a decrease in overall energy expenditure.
