Compression stockings, or vascular compression garments are designed to aid in vascular return of the lower extremities. Essentially they are tight socks, stockings or panty hose. They help to squeeze fluids in the tissues back into the circulatory system and aid the veins in returning blood back to the heart.
These medical devices may be prescribed for individuals with mild swelling, varicose veins or even tired legs. People who sit for prolonged times such as air travelers, or who are on their feet for extended periods such as nurses notice marked improvement in comfort with their use. The fitter will take detailed measurements and provide you with the appropriate sizing.
