Homecare Medical has a variety of compression socks and stockings on offer, including Calf Length Compression Socks, Compression Support Tights, and Thigh Length Compression Stockings. Compression socks are designed to improve blood circulation in the legs. They do this by applying slight pressure to the legs to encourage blood to flow smoothly from your lower extremities to your heart, thus preventing swelling, clotting or the build-up of fluid. Improved blood flow is valuable in all walks of life. Compression socks and stockings can be effective in preventing Lyphoedema, Cellulitis, Peripheral Oedema and Venous Leg Ulcers. Some of our range comes for the Sigvaris brand.
Compression stockings are also commonly used to:
- Relieve discomfort and swelling in the legs.
- Relieve varicose veins.
- Prevent the onset of symptoms associated with Post-Thrombotic Syndrome, Deep Vein Thrombosis, etc.
- Improve recovery if worn during exercise/activity.
