Compression Hosiery

Compression Hosiery by Therafirm

Medical gradient compression hosiery are designed to improve venous and lymphatic flow in the lower extremity.

Blood must circulate from the lower extremities back to the heart against the forces of gravity.  In healthy veins there are valves that, when open, allow flow of blood up toward the heart; closing of the valves prevents backflow and pooling of blood in the legs.  In unhealthy veins, the valves are weak and the walls of the veins become stretched and farther apart; the result is valves that cannot close fully, thus permitting backflow of blood.

Application of external compression, such as that provided by compression hosiery, compresses the diameter of the vein and:

  • increases blood velocity;
  • aids incompetent valve cusps to meet (i.e. close properly); and
  • reduces edema.

Therafirm stockings deliver a controlled amount of pressure - greatest at the ankle and gradually decreasing toward the top of the stocking.  Gradient pressure promotes better venous flow which helps to control:

  • swelling;
  • varicosities;
  • leg fatigue; and
  • other problematic leg conditions.
