One of the main reasons why I love going to CES in Las Vegas every year is to meet innovators like Heshika Deegahawathura, chief of recovery, of Spryng, a Sri Lanka company. They specialize in compression wear that helps speed up the recovery time from muscle soreness.
The Yale graduate was so much fun to talk to. He was so energized talking about how these new shinguards expand and contract around your calves. There are three different intensity modes, perfect for dancers, runners, hikers, and those with medical issues.
Deegahawathura explains the entire concept in the above video. A pair of shinguards are $129.
