The two pair of Jobst Opaque open toe knee highs arrived today. What a pleasure dealing with your company. someone on the phone promised that the stockings would arrive within the week-and today they arrived. We had been dealing with (another company) for over two and a half months-- charged for an order which never arrived. Thank goodness my husband found your company on the web. We now will always order from you.

Benefits of Graduated Support


So why does graduated compression therapy work?

Compression therapy means wearing socks or stockings that are specially designed to support your veins and increase circulation in your legs. The socks or stockings are typically applied first thing in the morning before swelling and discomfort begins, and removed at night. Throughout the day, the compression they provide prevents blood from pooling in leg veins, thereby helping overall circulation.

Remember that the heart fights gravity as it attempts to pump blood up the veins of the legs. As a person walks, the regular contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins are necessary to help the heart move blood up the legs efficiently. But it is unlikely that a person will walk continuously throughout the day - most of us sit or stand some of the time. Also, some people have inherited weakness of the vein walls or valves, which create additional challenges to venous circulation. This is why wearing compression socks or stockings is vital for the treatment of or prevention of varicose veins and other circulatory problems, especially for individuals who are at risk.
