Compression sport socks are designed to provide graduated pressure on the lower leg and foot. By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles, the circulating blood is forced through narrower channels, the arterial pressure is increased, causing more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet.
Compression socks are recommended for people whose occupations require long periods of standing. Experts suggest passengers on long flights should wear compression socks to prevent circulatory problems like deep vein thrombosis, legs cramps and edema.
We carry compression sports recovery socks by Medi CEP, Jobst and Bauerfeind.
