Our Compression Wear
Our compression wear combines function, fashion and comfort for preventative and therapeutic support.
What is Compression Wear?
Designed to apply pressure to the legs, ankle and feet, compression socks, stockings, hosiery, leggings and leg or arm sleeves are garments that help improve blood circulation to help prevent issues such as swelling, fatigue, varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and more.
There are four compression levels, which are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The higher the numbers, the more compression.
10-15 mmHg: Gentle compression. Great for everyday preventative support. Safe for people with diabetes, too.
15-20 mmHg: Moderate compression. Ideal following surgery, during and after pregnancy and when traveling.
20-30 mmHg: Firm compression. Recommended during and after pregnancy and following vein ligation procedures.
30-40 mmHg: Extra firm compression. Typically used by physician recommendation.
Types of Compression
Anti-embolism Stockings: Anti-embolism stockings are for post-surgical patients with limited mobility to help prevent blood clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis - DVT).
Compression Hosiery: Compression hosiery is for every day wear to help with fatigue, aches, swelling, edema and varicose veins or issues related to Venous insufficiency.
