Medical Gradient Compression Stockings
Medical gradient compression stockings improve venous and lymphatic blood flow. Unlike traditional dress or athletic stockings and socks, compression stockings use gradient pressure. These specialized stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure, which is greatest at the ankle of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better venous blood flow, which in turn helps to control swelling, varicosities, leg fatigue and other problematic leg conditions.
