OPROtec is the latest exciting brand to be added to the OPROGROUP’s growing portfolio of technical sports performance brands. It proudly joins OPRO Custom-Fit, OPRO Self-Fit and Maru.
When we got our heads together to develop OPROtec, our aim was simple. We wanted the brand to be straightforward and honest and to coin a phrase, ‘do what it said on the tin’ so our ethos reflects this. OPROtec gives athletes of all levels the ability to protect themselves and recover from injury and gain relief from pain. We are an inclusive brand – not an exclusive one.

- Proven to be resistant to MRSA
- Antimicrobial additive is active for the entire time you are wearing OPROtec K Tape
The second part of the OPROtec ethos focuses on recovery.
Unfortunately, injuries happen and we know being side-lined from activity is tough. But at OPROtec, we want to get you on the road to healing as soon as possible. Our sleeves, supports, and braces have all been created with materials and designs that warm and compress muscles to encourage blood flow and kickstart your body’s natural healing process.
Neoprene is a padded, stretchy, weather-resistant fabric with several unique qualities that promote recovery, the most important being its thermal properties. The neoprene in OPROtec products provides thermal compression andheat retention that promotes more efficient healing and muscle and joint movement. Neoprene retains heat – this leads to an increased oxygen consumption that aids in raising lactic acid thresholds. This, in turn, maximises blood flow to the area and reduces inflammation and pain.
The OPROtec ankle, calf, knee, and elbow sleeves all feature seamless knitting technology.Unlike other materials that may have thick seams that dig into the skin, the seamless design is specifically engineered for long-lasting comfort during athletic activity. OPROtec knitted sleeves help improve muscle performance and muscle recovery from injury through compression and increased blood flow to affected areas.
The final part of the OPROtec ethos is relief – relief from the pain and relief from the stresses of being injured.
All of our products are designed to get you back to activity as soon as possible and keep you moving throughout the recovery process. The last thing you want to deal with when working through an injury is having an uncomfortable brace or sleeve.
We’ve included a soft, silicone print in the unique OPROtec design on the inside of many OPROtec products. It is there to ensure that your support stays securely in place whilst you are wearing it and does not slip or move, even during strenuous exercise.
