Description The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of different pressure levels of compression calf sleeves (two types of graduated and one type of inversely graduated compression) on running performance, pressure pain threshold and lactate removal immediate after the experimental running test. The data was collected from 10 moderately trained runners (age 24.8 ± 3.45 years; body mass 74.11 ± 8.63 kg; maximum oxygen uptake 62.89 ± 7.68 mLkg-1 min-1). Significant differences were not found for any type compression calf sleeves but a positive trend in better performance time and lactate clearance were recoded for medium compression calf sleeves (25 mmHg at the ankle and 21 mmHg at the widest part of calf muscle).
