Knap'man Zoned Compression Shorts 45%
The first compression shorts in the world with a scientifically proven effect

Scientifically proven effect.

The 45% Knap'man Zoned Compression Shorts has positive effects on groin complaints in football players.
This is the conclusion of a large, independent research (Double Blinded Randomized Controlled Trial) at the University of Bath in England.

Although, physiotherapists, sports doctors and (top) athletes are already convinced about the effects of the revolutionary compression shorts for a long time, we now have a scientifically proof.
Scientific proof that the Zoned Compression Techonoly, patented by Knap'man, really makes the difference.

Groin complaints in football player unnecessary

Between 4 and 19% of the football players suffers with groin complaints. In women's football it is even more.
In general, groin complaints are a big problem in sports.
