Bandages are usually made of neoprene or a bamboo-carbon material. The advantage of bamboo-carbon fibres is that they emit infrared radiation that stimulates blood circulation and applies pressure on the bandaged area while exercising. What's more, the material has unique thermoregulation properties that allow the bandage to dry quickly and resist unpleasant odours.
Elastic neoprene, on the other hand, will perfecly adjust to the shape of your body, preventing the bandage from moving out of place while providing comfort.

Some special types of bandages can contain magnets. Magnets stimulate blood circulation, relieve pressure and reduce pain caused by arthritis.
The number of magnets can vary and depends on the size of the bandage. The most common number of magnets in a bandage is four.
Germanium components contain traces of germanium, a substance that stimulates the production of hormones, reduces pain of the afflicted joint and improves the joint's mobility. Germanium also positively stimulates detoxication and helps with osteoporosis and recovery.
Bandages usually have one of two types of fastenings. Velcro straps ensure perfect and adjustable fit. There are also elastic bandages that don't have any fastening and are just stretched over the joint in question. This way, the bandage fits perfectly. However, they can only be used by people with the same leg or arm circumference.
With most bandagess, ventilation is provided via permeable and breathable material. Ventilation ensures sweat release and allows the skin to breathe better. That's why ventilated bandages are more comfortable to use.
A bandage with braces provides better joint fixation and is better equipped to withstand shocks. These bandages are recommended for those who practice sports that present a risk of an injury.
Heating has a positive effect on releaving strained and fatigued muscles, helping with back ache. It also stimulates regeneration after training.
