Every sport has thousands of construction sites where you can work your way through. As a person who sees workouts as a balance to everyday life, the focus quickly shifts. Away from permanent consumption, towards self-realization in the context of fitness. But there is no right place to start or to start. Maximum strength is just as important as cardio capacity.

Where does Rehband come from?
Rehband was baptized and born in Sweden. They have been specializing in all types of compression clothing for a long time, but they are tailored to each athlete. Due to their wide range of products, Rehband appears as if they consider you as an athlete just as much as an individual like any other of their customers. A lot has happened since the company was founded in 1955. The concept that emerged at the time as the "Institutet för Bråckskador" set itself the goal of supporting athletes in their training and in competitions without restricting their freedom of movement and mobility. The expertise for this comes not least from a merger that took place around the year 2000 with the Otto Bock Group, which in turn is one of the largest manufacturers of rehabilitation equipment. While Otto Bock specializes in rehabilitation and health care, with the range being based on wheelchairs, prostheses, splints and orthoses, Rehband takes a different approach. The focus here is on a proactive lifestyle. From this point of view, the parent company concentrates on aftercare, while the Swedish bandage manufacturer values competitive sports and prevention.
