Core-Spun Socks and Stockings are made of an ultra-stretchy yarn which makes them easier to get on and off than traditional extra-firm medical socks. Designed for both men and women, these stockings come in a wide variety of sizes - fitting up to a 25.5" calf in the knee high socks, and 39.5" thigh in the thigh high stockings. Short length styles are designed for a lower leg length of less than 16".
Graduated 30-40 mmHg compression is used to treat a variety of moderate to severe medical conditions including edema, lymphedema, venous stasis ulcers, deep vein thrombosis and venous insufficiency. You can also use extra firm compression stockings to treat other leg health issues such as severe varicose veins, severe edema, lymphedema, venous ulcerations and insufficiency, as well as preventing deep vein thrombosis and post-thrombotic syndrome. Customers should only use this level of compression under a doctor's recommendation.
