Some current-day fabrics are used to protect and heal us, such as compression fabrics made of elastic fibres. In the event of a muscular injury, treatment with compression elements is often required to support the muscle. It is essential to know the specific characteristics of these fabrics (elasticity and extensibility) in order to apply them properly and achieve a rapid recovery.
