Inelastic Compression Wraps
Compression wraps are short-stretch bandages that wrap tightly around the lower leg or lower forearm. Designed to fit snugly, they work to reduce swelling and increase circulation, but the compression applied is a bit different than graduated compression socks. Compression wraps apply dynamic compression to the limb instead of static compression (traditional compression socks). This means that compression is strongest when you're moving and lightest when you're laying down or resting. This makes them safe to wear at night - or even 24 hours a day. Additionally, these are an excellent alternative to those who struggle with the application of compression socks as the velcro system is much easier to apply.
