THERAFIRM Therapeutic Gradient Compression Support Hosiery and Socks
TheraFirm has recently changed the colors of their therapeutic gradient compression hosiery and has a new line-- CORESPUN. Corespun support socks and stockings are constructed of an extra stretchy fabric that is easier to put on.
Therafirm support stockings available in open and closed toe stocking styles.
There are several companies making support stocking products, but the well-known Knit-Rite Company makes only one. For 45 years Therafirm has manufactured support stockings which create pressure at the ankle, thereby driving the blood flow deep into the circulatory system and back toward the heart. This therapeutic gradient compression is greatest at the angle and decreases gradually the length of the leg. The pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).
It is NEVER too soon to wear support or compression stockings. Standing can cause the blood to pool in your feet and lower legs. Sitting can cause constriction of the blood vessels in the leg. The damage may take years to show. Wearing support stockings and socks now will feel great due to the all day massage given to your legs and feet and will help ward of leg fatigue you may experience from long days. The future benefits of wearing support stockings are untold as the chances of you developing varicose veins and disorders is greatly diminished.
