HELPING YOU NAVIGATE YOUR MEDICAL SUPPLY NEEDS
About our compression stockings
Our compression stockings are the best solution for moderate to severe vein diseases. They help blood vessels work better by putting the right amount of consistent pressure on your leg or limb. They also give veins a boost to push blood back to the heart.
Unlike support stockings, our compression garments have a defined pressure gradient. That means greater comfort and better treatment outcomes for the patient.
If needed, our compression stockings can be prescribed by a doctor. Because we use as a durable medical equipment retailer that will measure patients properly and for the correct size.
The compression stocking products we offer are matched to the needs of every patient, right down to the smallest detail. And they can fit every lifestyle with our expansive options, various styles and an array of color choices.
What are venous diseases?
Veins in our legs carry blood back to our hearts. They have one-way valves that keep blood from flowing backwards. If you have a venous disease the valves won’t work as they should, and some blood may go back down the legs. If veins cannot operate effectively, the blood pools in the legs and various forms of venous disease can develop. In fact, chronic venous diseases are widespread and are often genetically programmed.
But factors such as standing and sitting for long periods of time, obesity and lack of physical exercise can also play a role. So tired and heavy legs, pins and needles or swollen ankles can all be signs of venous insufficiency. Fortunately, our compression stockings can act as a preventative measure.
Examples of venous diseases include:
Signs and symptoms
The first changes in your leg veins have normally already started long before you discover varicose veins or other visible signs. Tired or itchy legs, swollen ankles in the evening, pins and needles or pain in the legs are the first signals of changes in the veins. The so-called “warning veins,” a circle of distended veins at the ankle, is an important early sign to be aware of. These are followed later by swelling due to the accumulation of water, or so-called “thick legs.”
Why Compression Stockings/Socks?
• Prevents Swelling and Pain
• Energize Legs
• All-Day Comfort and Support
• Speeds Up Recovery From Injury or Workout
When You Do A Lot Of Standing Or Sitting All Day
Combat Everyday Fatigue + Reduce Muscle Aches
Daily life demands a lot from our bodies when we are on our feet all day or have that sitting job. Many people experience leg fatigue that comes from varicose veins, edema, or blood clots. If you struggle with tired legs, you might need a break from that standing or sitting.
When it’s not possible to press pause during long hours of work, maintaining healthy blood circulation is the key to staying energized and performing at your best. Wearing compression socks helps keep you safe from deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism, and other circulatory issues. With healthy blood flow, you can prevent heaviness, soreness, and health problems associated with excessive sitting or standing.
Stimulate Blood Flow + Boost Energy Levels
Knee high graduated compression socks increase blood circulation to keep you energized. We know that physical activity might not always be on your agenda, but compression socks make your lower legs feel like they’re getting a workday workout. More blood pumping means more oxygen getting to your extremities, which means less end-of-day fatigue and more energized legs throughout your day.
Whether you work in healthcare, a factory, or work in an office, you should leave leg swelling, lymphedema, and poor circulation at the door. With compression socks, you may be able to keep medical conditions associated with standing and sitting–venous insufficiency, fluid buildup, plantar fasciitis, DVT–at bay. Your lower body deserves some time off.
When You’re Traveling And Flying
Reduce Swelling + Decrease Risk of Blood Clots
Sitting for long periods on a plane, train, or in a car can cause blood and fluid to pool in the lower legs and feet leading to swelling.
Stagnant blood flow may cause deep vein clotting, which can lead to pulmonary embolism and other dangerous medical conditions. Many doctors recommend knee-high compression socks for long-haul flights.
Improve Blood Circulation + Make Travel Easier
On travel days that involve sitting for long periods of time, wear compression socks to reduce the side effects of edema. Compression socks work their magic by gently squeezing the legs to increase blood flow from your legs and feet back towards your heart. Once the blood starts to move, swelling subsides. You’ll also lower the risk of developing blood clots that can lead to DVT (deep vein thrombosis). That’s why we recommend reaching for them before your next long flight, car or train ride.
Wherever wanderlust takes you, from New York to Europe, pack your carry-on with compression socks for travel. Frequent airline passengers swear by graduated compression therapy and the comfort that comes from a compression level gradient. High-quality graduated compression socks provide a larger amount of pressure at the ankle and less at the calf, promoting healthy blood flow from the feet to the heart.
Alleviate Edema + Pain Resulting From Circulation Issues
Thanks to gravity, the most challenging place for your body to pump and circulate blood is from your heart down to your feet and back. When you’re standing or sitting for long periods of time, this becomes even more challenging for your body. As a result, blood tends to pool in the lower legs. Healthcare professionals know that poor circulation can lead to a number of dangerous side effects. An unhealthy buildup of fluids may cause pain, venous insufficiency, or deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Boost Circulation of Freshly Oxygenated Blood + Reduce Swelling
Stockings work by gently squeezing your ankles and legs, forcing your veins to narrow and in-creasing the speed of blood flow. Improved blood circulation lowers your risk of vascular conditions, such as varicose veins, blood clots, and embolism. Graduated compression therapy assists venous return, help-ing your blood flow from the feet to the heart. You’ll notice an improvement in peripheral edema, lymph-edema, and other medical conditions that cause swollen legs.
Say goodbye to excess fluid retention with help from comfortable knee-high socks. Medical grade compression assists your circulatory system, allowing you to eliminate waste fluids faster. Meanwhile, improved blood flow keeps your legs feeling light and lean. Wear compression socks to prevent edema and its side effects. With the right socks, it’s possible to reduce painful swelling and feel better fast.
When Your Pregnancy
Avoid Blood Clots + Decrease Chance of Spider Veins
Besides expecting a bundle of joy, most moms-to-be can also expect edema–swelling in the lower legs, ankles, and feet caused by the normal increase of blood volume and fluid during pregnancy. In addition, some pregnant women may experience vascular issues like varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Blood clots in your deep veins can put you at high risk for life-threatening complications and severe swelling. That’s why so many women wear compression socks during pregnancy.
Improve Blood Flow + Reduce Leg Swelling
Knee-high compression socks work their magic by gently squeezing the legs to promote blood flow from your legs and feet back towards your heart, resulting in better overall blood circulation. Medical professionals recommend maternity compression socks as an effective way to reduce pregnancy-related edema and lower your risk of blood clots. With a pair of compression socks, your lower extremities won’t keep growing, month after month.
Leg pain? We’ve got that covered. We’re not saying your third trimester will be a breeze–compression socks don’t stop hormonal changes, morning sickness, or back pain–but wearing compression socks during pregnancy can take off some of the pressure. After all, you have enough to think about.
When Your Working Out
Reduce Muscle Soreness + Clear Lactic Acid
Post-workout, many athletes experience a temporary reduction in athletic performance, caused by muscle fatigue, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), shin splints, edema, and various minor injuries. Needing time for recovery is normal. Still, prolonged recovery can disrupt training schedules for serious athletes. Even for amateurs, faster recovery has potential benefits–both on and off the field. Studies have shown that compression socks help to oxygenate cells and to clear lactate build-up and other waste materials from the bloodstream. What is the end result? A pair of compression socks may be the key to feeling better faster.
Improve Blood Flow + Supercharge Training
In addition to preventing varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis, compression socks also helps jump-starts your functional recovery. Studies of runners, cyclists, netball players, and other athletes suggest that wearing compression gear after a workout improves subsequent athletic performance. Compression garments work by boosting your blood circulation, which enables your lower body to feel more energized. In particular, graduated compression socks assist your lower legs, including your shin and calf muscles, by forcing deoxygenated blood and waste fluids out of your legs.
Recovery compression socks lead to health benefits you can feel—better circulation, less muscle soreness, and more stamina.
Maximize Performance + Avoid Soreness
Elite and everyday athletes experience the same issues–feeling sluggish, enduring leg cramps, and battling shin splints after strenuous workouts. A dedication to exercising can put a lot of strain and stress on the body, but by simply switching your socks, you can help elevate your athletic performance, avoid injury, and reduce muscle soreness after your workout.
Improve Circulation = More Energy + Less Lactic Acid Build Up
If you’ve ever felt muscle pain or soreness during a run, or strenuous workout, you’re not alone. Compression socks offers potential benefits, including a more energized lower body, improved running performance, and better athletic form. Stockings come in moisture-wicking fabric and arch support to assist you throughout your workout. Graduated compression socks even reduce the buildup of lactic acid (the culprit behind post-workout soreness).
Wearing compression garments on the lower legs can actually increase blood flow throughout your entire body. Faster oxygen delivery gives you less muscle fatigue and more energy for a high-intensity workout. Better blood circulation has other health benefits, too, reducing incidence of blood clots, varicose veins, leg swelling, delayed onset muscle soreness, and medical conditions associated with venous insufficiency.
Studies show that compression socks work to improve functional recovery and reduce oxidative stress. Regular spandex socks can’t compete.
