Compression garments are gradient stockings for your arms or legs that help control disorders such as chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, lymphedema, post phlebitis syndrome and prevention of blood clots.
We carry a variety of compression garment sizes and styles for both your arms and legs. Because they are available in different levels of compression (mmHg) and styles (knee-high, thigh-high, pantyhose and arm or elbow length) your physician should advise which type is best for you.
