Compression garments help circulate the blood. When the surface veins, arteries and muscles are compressed, the arterial pressure is increased and this results in more blood returning to the heart and less to the lower limbs. We have a variety of graduated compression garments and products available for you to use to eliminate swelling and increase the blood flow.
Who should wear graduated compression stockings/garments?
People who have varicose veins
