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?
A: The most important thing to remember is that compression products are only beneficial when worn. If they're uncomfortable, bulky, or only can be worn for short periods of time, they won't be very effective. That's why all Tommie Copper products are manufactured using a proprietary compression fabric combined with copper-infused yarn that, by design, is so comfortable you may forget that you're wearing it.

Q:Who wears Tommie Copper?
A: Tommie Copper products are designed to be worn by anyone seeking temporary relief from swelling or faster recovery of muscle function after exercise. Everyone from Olympic runners to grandmothers who like to garden can benefit from the combination of copper-infused yarn and the comfortable compression provided by Tommie Copper Compression wear.

Q:When will I start to feel the benefits of wearing Tommie Copper Cu29 Compression gear?
A: We're all different. The benefits of wearing Tommie Copper Compression products can start immediately for some people and gradually for others. To achieve maximum benefit, compression products need to be worn often and for as long as possible. Tommie Copper Compression products are, by design, the most comfortable compression wear available � so comfortable that many of our customers only take them off to shower.

Q:When should I wear my Cu29 Compression gear?
A: Tommie Copper compression gear is designed and manufactured to be the most comfortable compression wear available. Because compression products only work when you're wearing them, comfort should be a key factor when deciding on compression gear. Tommie Copper Compression gear is so comfortable and functional we recommend wearing it often and for as long as possible. Many people find sleeping in their Tommie Copper products produce enhanced results.

Q:Are there any potential side effects from the copper?
A: Copper is an entirely natural and essential nutrient to human health. However, in very rare cases, people may have an allergic reaction. If this happens, stop wearing Cu29 Compression gear immediately.

Q:How do I care for my Tommie Copper products?
A: All Tommie Copper products are machine-washable and dryer-safe. Wash in warm water with like colors, tumble dry low heat, and do not use bleach or dryer sheets.

F09444 - Tommie Copper Cu29 Copper Compression Knee Sleeve 3 5 4 4
More than a knee brace! I am a huge QVC shoper! I have even began converting my husband. I saw this line of support braces and immediately thought of my hubby. He is in his early 30's and plays basketball religiously. Of course his body doesn't match up to his brain. He gets major knee and ankle pain from lots of previous injuries. I got 1 knee brace hoping this would satisfy his issues of finding a perfect brace. When I gave it to him he wore it that day and absolutely loved it! We have spent hundreds in braces from every retail store. A few weeks back it was in the laundry and he refused to play basketball without it! He asked for me to buy a 2nd one and I just received it. I now have a happy hubby! I don't know why the other shoppers have had negative reviews. It does exactly as described. No, it's not going to support major fractures or ailing bones. But to use as a support for normal exercise and daily wear, this is a winner!!! 11-26-11
Disappointed I was looking for compression and support in this knee sleeve. However, it is entirely too light weight and nothing like I expected. I followed the directions for measurement and believe the size is correct but it's nothing more than wearing a pair of tights or a stocking. Will not recommend this to anyone. 09-28-11
No Compression Value This product did not provide any relief for me, although I ordered it in the size suggested for my knee measurement. It was too thin to offer any compression. I returned it and will stick to the heavier knee sleeves I have used in the past. 09-27-11
FABULOUS This is a great product! I have an old knee injury that flairs up when I exercise and I purchased this sleeve to replace my old ACE sleeve. I love it -- it's comfortable, doesn't move around or slide down, is black which is nice, looks good, and most importantly does the job! Follow the sizing instructions and you'll be good to go! 07-27-11
