Ten subjects (men, n=5; women, n=5; age: 24.11 ± 4.48 years; height: 163.56 ± 7.70 cm; chest: 87.78 ± 6.92 cm; weight: 58.67 ± 10.96 kg; BMI: 21.77 ± 2.63 kg.m-2) completed a running protocol on a treadmill. Each subject participated in two running trials, wearing either a compression garment (CG) or a non-compression garment (NCG) during exercise. Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals were collected during exercise using wearable sensors. The present study revealed a statistically significant difference between CGs and NCGs in alpha, beta and theta power spectral density (p<0.05). Therefore, the brain activity was influenced by the application of CGs during the running test. This result would also recommends an application of CGs in training as well as in competition.
