ABOUT TA-SK

THE IDEA

The idea of a compression sleeve for a passive recovery comes from an intuition of Roberto Loda, CEO of Punto Azzurro, an Italian family-run company specialized in the production and sale of technical high-quality sportswear.

Because of the proximity to the world of athletes and their needs, because of some injuries suffered by his parents in the mountains, and being unsatisfied with the products already on the market, Roberto started researching a compression sleeve with high rehabilitation performances.

THE PROJECT

Punto Azzurro, in partnership with Macpi SpA and CSMT, got a loan from the Lombardy Region with European Union funds for research, development and innovation in the Smart & Fashion Design field.

A R&D project was launched to analyze the most recurring traumas in sports, to study new materials and to obtain garments with differentiated compressions. The project, called “TA-SK Talking Skin”, lead to the development of some prototypes with integrated sensors, in order to record and monitor patients’ therapy progress, through technological devices connection.

The garments realized during the project were tested in laboratory and were able to recreate the elastic-compressive bandage made by physiotherapists. This allowed to create a faster and more efficient passive post-trauma recovery, with the possibility of tracing the therapy evolution. The project gave life to an innovative product, in a sensor-less version: a rehabilitation garment, unique on the market, dedicated to athletes and sportsmen.

Thanks to its compressive action, TA-SK Upper Leg allows a more efficient and faster post-injury recovery, as it is able to recreate physiotherapists’ treatment.

The fabric of the product guarantees a compression and an elasticity that remain stable over time, ensuring maximum breathability even in prolonged use.

An excellent made in Italy design, able to ensure maximum comfort.
