AthleticCompression.com continues its growth as Aleva Stores adds McDavid to its inventory.

McDavid’s roots trace back to 1969 when Dr. Robert F. McDavid designed and developed what was to become the first widely used lateral protective knee brace in football.

Now, McDavid is the most widely used and recommended brand of braces among sports medical professionals and the industry leader in sports medical products, technical performance athletic wear and consumer merchandising.

The latest innovation to come out of McDavid is its HexPad Technology, which changes the way athletes wear under clothing by fusing padding to the performance fabrics and defining an entire new category – Protective Apparel.

Their goal remains to develop innovative products and technologies to help prevent injury and to enhance performance of athletes and active people of all ages, which fits in perfectly with what Aleva Stores is trying to do with AthleticCompression.com.

About Us

AlevaLegs.com is a division of Aleva Stores. Our parent company, American Medical Services, was founded in 1957 by Joseph L. Gaskins. "Mr. G.", as everyone knew him, was born in 1914 in a small farming community in southern Indiana. At age 3, he lost his leg to infection. After crutching to school and around the farm for 10 years, he received his first prosthetic leg. It was at that point in time he decided to dedicate his life to prosthetic manufacturing and to assisting those with medical needs. In the late 1930s, he moved to Michigan and continued working in the medical field. In 1957, he opened his first store in Pontiac, Michigan.

Over 50 years later, we are proud to carry on his tradition of assisting those needing healthcare products. Through the power of the Internet, we have been able to not only carry on his legacy, but to expand it with the creation of Aleva Stores. We now serve over 2,500 customers daily and are quickly becoming one of the most respected healthcare product retailers in the industry. "Mr. G." recently passed away at the age of 94. He is greatly missed by us all, but we know he is looking down and smiling upon all he's created.

Today, his legacy is carried on by his son, Larry Gaskins, and his grandson, Derek Gaskins. Larry, Derek and the rest of the AlevaLegs.com team want to thank you for visiting our site and for choosing us for your compression therapy needs.
