Jobst Anti-Embolism stockings are specially designed to reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), commonly referred to as blood clots. Like all compression hosiery Anti-Embolism stockings apply gradient compression highest at the ankle and gradually decreasing up the leg. This improves blood flow greatly reducing the risk of clotting.
Anti-Embolism stockings are designed for people who are bedridden or otherwise immobile for prolonged periods of time. For correct sizing measure around the widest part of your calf and the length from floor to bend of knee.
Best anti-embolism hose I have found, January 14, 2017 By Donna Gerringer (Burlington, NC)(Verified)
The ONLY anti-embolism hose I have found that do not cut off circulation at the top. If you have given up on compression hose because the elastic band at the top is too tight, give these a try. They feel wonderful from the foot up. I have a side effect of a medication that causes my left foot and ankle to swell. These hose compress my foot and ankle so snugly that I don't want to take them off. However I dobut replace them with other JOBST ultra-sheer knee-highs which I ordered after I received these. I am sold on this brand and this company!

I am SOLD on JOBST anti-embolism stockings! I held my breath when I ordered, hoping that these would not be so tight at the top that they cut off circulation below my knee as other styles have. These are WONDERFUL. They are effective yet comfortable . I have better compression on my instep and ankle with graduated compression up my leg than with other brands I have tried. In my particular situation I am on the post-chemo drug Herceptin which for me has the very uncomfortable side effect of foot and ankle swelling. These JOBST have done the trick. I absolutely recommend these without hesitation and will be ordering more. BTW I am 69 years old and will be measuring and ordering this brand for other 90 year old family members.

The Jobst knee highs…, October 19, 2009 By Anonymous (Oceanside, CA)
The Jobst knee highs were great but too small. I returned them and reordered the wide calf style of Jobst which fit GREAT!
