Could you benefit from wearing compression? Anyone’s legs can feel better while wearing gradient compression stockings, especially those who spend a significant amount of time in sedentary sitting or standing positions. Gradient compression delivers a compression to the leg that is tightest at the ankle. The amount of compression gradually decreases up the leg. Compression is expressed in mmHg (millimeters of mercury). i
Individuals who notice the most benefit are those who experience symptoms such as: Active Venous Ulcer Healed venous ulcer, Leg swelling, lymphedema, Post-thrombotic syndrome, Tired, aching, heavy feeling legs Varicose veins, Venous insufficiency
It is recommended that you consult with your physician before wearing compression 20 mmHg and above. If you also have arterial circulation problems in your legs please consult with your physician before wearing any level of compression.
