Compression Stockings

Our compression stockings are designed with medical-grade materials to offer essential support and improve circulation. Whether you're dealing with specific medical conditions such as varicose veins or aiming to boost your leg health, our compression stockings provide the perfect solution for your needs.

What Are Compression Stockings?

Compression Stockings, also known as compression socks or support stockings, are therapeutic garments that apply consistent pressure to your legs, ankles, and feet. They come in various compression levels, from light to medium and high, and are designed to improve blood circulation, reduce swelling, and alleviate discomfort associated with conditions such as varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis.

How Do Compression Stockings Work?

Compression Stockings, available in various compression levels and sizes, support individual needs by applying pressure that decreases from ankle to top, promoting healthy blood flow and reducing blood clot risks. For moderate support, CCL1 and CCL2 stockings are great, alleviating discomfort and swelling. Light compression stockings are available for mild relief without too much pressure. 

Who Should Use Compression Stockings?

Compression Stockings are beneficial for various individuals, including those with varicose veins, spider veins, or experiencing symptoms of poor blood circulation in the legs. They are often recommended for people who sit or stand for long periods, individuals recovering from surgery, pregnant women, and those with a history of blood clots or deep vein thrombosis. 

How to Pick Compression Stockings

Selecting the right Compression Stockings is essential to experience their full benefits. Consider the following factors:

  1. Compression Level: Determine the appropriate level of compression recommended by your healthcare provider based on your medical condition and individual needs.

  2. Length: Compression Stockings are available in various lengths, including knee-high, thigh-high, and full-length. Choose the length that best suits your needs and comfort.

  3. Material: Look for high-quality, medical grade, breathable materials that provide comfort and durability.

  4. Size: Proper sizing is crucial for optimal effectiveness. Refer to the size chart provided by the manufacturer to find the right fit for your measurements.
