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.”
