What Are The Advantages Of Knee High Compression Stockings
Knee high stockings are the optimal choice to promote circulation in the lower leg and during exercise periods. In addition, compared to thigh high stockings, knee highs are usually easier for patients and nurses to use, less expensive, more comfortable and less likely to cause injuries like sores and rashes around the band. However, in terms of therapeutic performance, knee high and thigh high compression stockings have the same function and effect – to improve blood circulation and to prevent blood clots.
What Are The Advantages Of The 15-20mmHg Compression Level?
15-20mmHg compression, otherwise known as moderate compression, is a great choice for daily wear, travel, and sports. It will help improve circulation without being too tight on the patient’s legs.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

3. You can then reach down and pull the leg portion up. Turn the stocking right side out one section at a time. You should also stretch the stocking and adjust it up your calf as you go.
