Q:How was Tommie Copper started?
A: Tommie Copper was founded by Tom Kallish, who after many years of wear and tear on his joints and muscles from competitive waterskiing, was diagnosed with arthritis. Not one to let joint and muscle pain slow him down, Tom took to wearing compression sleeves. Although the various devices provided some relief, he found them to be uncomfortable, restricting, and bulky. Tom wanted something that provided relief, yet was comfortable for extended periods of time. After many months of designing and testing various fabrics, Tom invented a proprietary fabric that met his comfort requirement. At the same time, he had been studying the healing effects of copper on the body. He felt that the combination of compression and copper would increase the product's effectiveness. By combining the benefits of this revolutionary compression fabric with the patented copper-infused yarn, Tom created what's now Tommie Copper�s Cu29 compression fabric, which is used in all of Tommie Copper�s compression wear.
Q:What does Cu29 mean?
A: Cu is the elemental symbol for copper, and 29 is the atomic number for copper.
Q:What are the benefits of compression?
