Abstract The present study aimed to determine the effect of fabric direction, fabric composition and number of fabric layers on pressure generated by sport compression garments. Experimental fabric used in commercially available compression sport garments was chosen. Experimental fabric sleeves imitating a part of a pressure garment were assembled and placed on cylinders of different diameters, so that they provided different fabric direction, fabric composition of sleeve and number of layers in assemblies along the circumference of the cylinders. A Salzmann MST MK IV pressure-measuring device and Salzmann MST 2007 software were used to measure the interface pressure generated by the sleeves. It was established that different direction, fabric composition of sleeve and number of fabric layers in fabric assemblies influences the interface pressure.
