Our High Performance Biceps and Triceps Compression Sleeve
The Biceps and Triceps compression Arm Helix is a bicep and tricep compression sleeve designed to ease pain from biceps and triceps strains or tendon injuries.
The Biceps-Triceps Arm Helix is also a great support to help reduce the oscillation of the muscles of the upper arm while keeping them warm, thereby protecting the biceps and triceps muscles and tendons from possible re-injury.
Our biceps and triceps compression sleeve utilises Form-Fit Technology. Consequently, the sleeve allows a full range of motion while remaining anchored to the skin and firmly in place. Additionally the sleeve will not absorb excess water, bacteria, or odours and 100% machine washable.
A proper fit is important
It is very important to measure your biceps and triceps at the maximum dimension where it will be used in order to get the proper fit for your compression sleeve. Please do not measure your elbow.

Dr. Fields discusses compression and how biceps injuries heal…
Muscles, tendons, ligaments all heal by a flow of electrons that bridge a gap and bring in the healing tissues. Therefore, if that muscle is torn or disrupted so it doesn’t have a nice, confined contour, it doesn’t heal as fast. So, when you get a biceps injury, you’ve got a lot of blood supply to your biceps — you’ll get a lot of swelling in there. Therefore, unless you compress that, get it down to where it’s in a more normal plane, it’s going to take longer for those fibers to come back together and heal themselves.
