Medical Grade Compression Stockings for Short or Long-Term Use
Following surgery, it is important you wear compression stockings to reduce swelling and help eliminate excess water from your body. If you are expecting to have surgery, a high-quality and durable pair of compression socks should be on the top of your shopping list to ensure a full and speedy recovery, and to prevent life-threatening blood clots.
The body swells with water in response to surgery to protect itself, but a build up of water in the legs can be very dangerous, so you must prevent this happening for the sake of your health and wellbeing.
Using Compression Socks to Treat Varicose Veins
Also known as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), ‘varicose veins’ is a condition that occurs when the venous wall and/or valves in the leg veins are not working effectively. This makes it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs. CVI can leave you with leg pain and cramps, and a feeling of burning throbbing or restlessness in the effected leg. In serious cases where varicose veins are left untreated, blood clots can occur. This is due to a build-up of stagnant blood that has not been able to make its way through the veins. Eventually the pressure of the restricted blood flow will dislodge the clot, allowing it to travel to the heart where it can cause death.
If you have varicose veins and you are planning a holiday whereby you will be seated for a long time whilst travelling, it is absolutely vital that you protect yourself by wearing compression stockings or socks. Sitting for long periods of time greatly increases the likelihood of developing a blood clot from your varicose vein problem, simply wearing these compression socks can help to eliminate this risk.
Compression Stockings Suitable for Every Day Wear
The Tonus Elast Long Compression Socks are suitable for use every day, they are black in colour which means they look just like any other pair of socks, but they have been manufactured to the highest, medically graded standards to offer the optimum protection for those at risk for reasons such as:
- Prolonged bed rest (such as after surgery)
- Sitting for long periods (such as on a plane)
- Use of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy
- Family history of deep vein thrombosis
- Inflammatory bowel disease, and certain genetic clotting disorders
Wearing compression stockings can also help you if you struggle with poor circulation. The feeling that your feet are constantly cold no matter if you wear 3 pairs of socks or none at all could be down to poor circulation. Healthy blood flow is vital for keeping your extremities toasty and warm and wearing compression garments is a great way of warming those toes.
Compression Stockings Manufactured to the Highest Standards
The Tonus Elast Long Compression Socks are certified by the Latvian Phlebotomy Association and registered as a medical grade garment in more than 27 countries. They have been meticulously created using raw materials from leading European producers like Swisslastic and Zimmerman and are stitched using first class knitting machines by mechanical industry leaders. These garments are guaranteed to comply with all medical standards and offer the highest level of medical grade compression.
What Size Compression Socks Should You Buy?
Simply measure your legs in the areas B, C and D as shown in the diagram below and select your size. Compression socks are designed to be tight fitting to your legs (this is how the compression works) so when you first put your socks on you may wish to use talcum powder on your legs to make pulling them on easier.
