These exceptionally comfortable knee-high socks are ideal for men or women treating circulation, edema, swelling, lymphedema and post-surgical healing. With 12/15 mmHg of graduated compression, these socks stimulate the superficial network of lymphatic capillaries to support the body's natural function to move fluid. Designed with patented Advanced Micro Massage 3D wave knit fabric, which expands and contracts on the skin, the socks create a gentle wave of pressure to activate rather than collapse this aspect of the system. Features include:
Breathable, moisture-wicking fabric to keep your feet and legs cool
Silver-infused threads reduce bacteria to avoid infection
Non-constricting top band and toe box to aide in donning
Most effective when worn during physical activity.
For best results, hand wash using a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. Do not wring. Garments can be machine washed in a lingerie bag with warm water using the delicate cycle and dried on a low temperature setting. Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softener or other laundry additives.

These are wonderful socks, lightweight but effective. However, the size did not work out for me, I wear a size 5.5 shoe, so since these are unisex the smallest size was still too big and gathered at the ankle and behind my knee. Great socks, just be aware of sizing

I've used these for years now and they are the best, most comfortable, easy to put on compression socks I've found. I've also recommended them to others. The active part of the name is because the weave helps move fluid. I have the leggings and the ankle socks in this fabric too and use the pair to mimic tights. I turn them inside out to launder and put them in the delicate/hand wash cycle of our machine then let them air dry. Or hand wash when traveling. They dry quickly.
