EC3D Orthopedic Compression Wear is the result of 15 years of state-of-the-art technological innovation for the medical field woven with a devotion to the active lifestyle. This Montreal based company, a division of QSD Inc., a company specializing in three-dimensional seamless compression garments was established in 2005 by brothers Gilbert and Danny Ayoub, co-founders of Gildan, the worlds largest T-shirt manufacturer. Seamless knitting expert Michelle Simon, her daughter Carine Villeneuve and the Ayoub brothers working with surgeon Dr. Jean-Raymond Spenard originally designed their seamless compression wear for medically safe, post-surgical garments used after cosmetic surgery, gastric bypass and mastectomy patients. Gilbert, a lifelong athlete, realized EC3D's athletic applications. Since injury is an inevitable part of sport, he and his partners focused on the most common injuries to design seamless graduated compression garments that optimize the biomechanics of the entire body. The garments are medical grade compression and registered with the FDA as a medical device.
