Compression Socks & Stockings
Compression socks and stockings are specifically designed to apply pressure to your legs, with the greatest pressure at the ankle and gradually decreasing as they move up the leg. The level of compression in knee-high socks is highest at the ankle and lowest at the calf, while for thigh-high and stockings, the highest pressure is at the ankle, gradually decreasing up to the thigh.
The purpose of compression hosiery is to aid in the return of blood to the heart, reduce venous pressure, and prevent blood pooling and damage to the veins’ walls. By helping the body to move blood up the leg against the force of gravity, they also provide significant relief for tired and heavy legs.
Compression garments is a unique and effective way to support your legs and promote healthy circulation.
