The Contour Compression collection from Python Performance, a UK-based activewear company, takes advantage of one of the most topical rehabilitative and preventative techniques in sports science today. Garments in the Contour Compression collection have kinesiology tape, or KT tape, crafted directly into the layout of the clothing, helping to heal injuries and prevent pain automatically.

Anyone who has undergone athletic rehabilitation -- or anyone who pay attention to the various accouterments worn by professional athletes -- will be familiar with KT tape. The strips are stuck directly onto one's body, and kinesiologists aver that it provides support, stability, and pain relief. The tape has become a hugely popular athletic rehabilitation and prevention technique.

Contour Compression activewear has panels of sticky fabric that act in the same way as the tape, pulling and compressing muscles as necessary.
