Aim: To verify the effects of the elastic compression on the muscular oscillations in walking and to determine a possible dose-effect response. Synthesis: Twelve subjects walked 3 times (3. min) at 6. km/h on a treadmill: with compression sleeves applying a pressure level of 15 or 30. mmHg (calf) or without compression sleeves. The muscular oscillations were measured with accelerometers placed on the lateral gastrocnemius muscle. Conclusion: The muscular oscillations decrease with compression sleeves. This decrease was more pronounced (P< 0.05) with the 30. mmHg (-19.9%) compared with the 15. mmHg (-16.5%) level.
