Pressure Gradient Hose
Pressure Gradient Hoses or otherwise known as Compression Stockings, are medically graded stockings that assist in increase of blood flow throughout the body.
Compression Stockings are used by compressing the limb, thus, promoting blood flow. This style of compression helps by keeping the level of compression the highest at the ankle and slowly decreases as it goes up the leg.
This type of treatment is usually prescribed by a physician to treat diagnoses such as Thrombosis, Phlebitis, Varicose Veins, and even aftercare following surgical procedures. This can also be helpful when it comes to Venous issues during pregnancy and for staying stationary for long periods of time.
There are many levels for Compression Stockings.
Understanding these different levels of compression can be a confusing aspect. Each level of compression is measured in “Millimeters of Mercury” which is a measurement of pressure, which is also used in the measurement of one’s blood pressure. Compression Stockings are made with a special knitting process that helps improve circulation within the compressed area. However, misuse can lead to devastating effects; that is why we recommend speaking to our specialists
