Compression stocking / socks This reduces the diameter of distended veins and increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. ... Knee-high compression stockings are used not only to help increase circulation, but also to help prevent the formation of blood clots in the lower legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots. If you have varicose veins, spider veins, or have just had surgery, your health care provider may prescribe compression stockings. Compression stockings help relieve the symptoms of varicose veins. They improve circulation and are a mainstay of treatment for varicose veins that are causing symptoms. (Mild varicose veins that are not causing symptoms don't need treatment.) Compression stockings are tightest at the foot. Shin splints Shin splints, the catch-all term for lower leg pain that occurs below the knee either on the front outside part of the leg (anterior shin splints) or the inside of the leg (medial shin splints), are the bane of many athletes, runners, tennis players, even dancers. They often plague beginning runners who do not build their mileage gradually enough or seasoned runners who abruptly change their workout regimen, suddenly adding too much mileage, for example, or switching from running on flat surfaces to hills.
GRADUATED COMPRESSION: The compression in the socks reduces from the ankle to the knee. This supports the calves and promotes increased blood flow, leading to increased oxygen flow to the leg muscles helping to prevent cramps and lessen fatigue
ATHLETIC FIT: To help prevent sprains/blisters and to provide extra comfort, the socks contain additional padding for the heel, sole of the foot and Achilles tendon. Additional panels for ventilation ensure breathability. Padding in the critical area reduces the likelihood of blisters.
COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY: Anti-sprain (support arch and ankle), shock absorbing (optimised strike and push off,) recuperation (accelerate physical recovery), wear-resisting (anti-blister design), dry panels (breathable panels keep feet dry), heel cup (impact cushioning), anti-fatigue (enhanced energy and endurance), left / right (ergonomic design for each foot).
SUGGESTED USES: Unisex. Perfect for sports (running, marathons, triathlons, hiking, cycling, golf, football, rugby, tennis, basketball, skiing, weight lifting and general fitness), work (individuals who are on their feet all day e.g.: nurses, pharmacists, police, warehouse operatives), travelling (prevent DVT and blood clots whilst on long flights, bus or car journeys), recovery (varicose veins, DVT, CFA, shin splints, sports training, tired legs, old age, bed ridden patents)
HIGH QUALITY: Patent protected technology (patent number 201620078798.6) - a premium blend of fibres to ensure breathability, elasticity and longevity: 73% polyamide 91, 18% polyester fibres (wick away moisture from the skin helping to keep the skin dryer for longer), 9% spandex (for comfort and support to critical areas).
