According to Deal  the use of copper for pain relief is not new, having been used for centuries to battle arthritis. But now, the sleeves utilize it in their compression properties to fight chronic pain. “The magnetic field that it generates encourages your body to cure, regenerate nearby tissues, and has been proved, that once absorbed through the skin, will actually treat a multitude of skin issues. However, simply ‘adding’ copper to the nylon fibers was not sufficient, so our team of doctors and expert patented a unique, new and innovative technology that bonds organic copper onto fiber macromolecules. This is based on the fact that the copper bonds with Nylon at the deepest level, in the form of copper ions: Cu++ and Cu+.”
