BV SPORT, A GREAT STORY

BEHIND THE CONCEPT, TWO VASCULAR DOCTORS

In 1989, the doctor Michaël Prüfer, co-founder of BV SPORT, multiple world champion and speed-skiing champion at the Albertville winter Olympic in 1992, was interested in improving the performance of toplevel athletes. Aware of the important role of recovery in improving performance, he invented a new and revolutionary concept of compression support socks designed specifically for athletes... BV SPORT (Booster Veines Sport) was created in 1998. They were greeted with immediate success and welcomed by prestigious clients. BV SPORT products are used by Europe's leading clubs and the world's best athletes.

INVENTION OF THE BOOSTER SLEEVE

Odiah Sidibé persuaded the male and female relay athlete to test out the BV SPORT concept. They declared that it improves performance, reduces the risk of injury and speeds up recovery. In order to fulfil the wishes of the athletes who wanted to keep their ankle socks or have bare feet under their shoes, BV SPORT launched its innovative compression BOOSTER sleeve design on the market ! Since 2011, BV SPORT has been a partner of the French Athletics Federation.
