Medical gradient compression stockings recover venous and lymphatic blood flow. Compression stockings are planned to deliver a restricted amount of force which is maximum at the distal end (ankle) of the garment and slowly reduces towards the proximal end (top) of the stocking.
The gradient pressure sponsors better venous blood flow which in turn helps to control inflammation, varicosities, leg tiredness, exhaustion, cramps and other problematic leg conditions.
Compression stockings are available in 3 different pressure gradients:
1. 15- 20 mmg
2. 20-30 mmg
3. 30-40 mmg
Your Physiotherapist will tell you which amount of pressure is suitable for you after an initial assessment session.
Compression stockings are available in 3 different lengths for both men and women:
1. Knee- High Stocking
2. Thigh- High Stocking
Accurate dimensions of leg are taken by the health care practitioner to provide you with a accurate pair of stockings.
