If you experience chronic swelling or tingling in your limbs, or if you are confined to your bed for most of the day, there is a good chance your life could be improved with the use of compression therapy. Whether you are preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), applying gradient pressure to circulate blood flow, or reducing limb swelling through active pump pressure, compression therapy has a wide range of uses and applications. Once you find the right therapy, you will be well on your way to going about your day much more comfortably.
Support stockings have been used to take care of venous disorders for a long time. From reducing the swelling in ankles and feet, relieving tired and aching legs for those who spend most of their day on their feet, and helping runners improve their performance by helping their legs recover after a long run; to preventing life-threatening blood clots which develop while traveling or during hospital stays; support stockings are one of the most important instruments used for quality health care.
