Compression Stockings

Medical gradient compression stockings improve venous and lymphatic blood flow. Compression stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better venous blood flow which in turns helps to control swelling, varicosities, leg fatigue and other problematic leg conditions.

People who have or are experiencing any of the following conditions can benefit from wearing gradient compression hosiery:

  • Tired, aching, fatigued legs
  • Swollen feet, ankles and legs
  • People who stand or sit for long periods
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Moderate to severe varicose veins
  • Expectant mothers
  • Schlerotherapy
  • Lymphedema
  • Overweight
  • Family history of venous leg disorders
