The knowledge about medical compression stockings

Compression stockings are a product that can treat venous diseases of the lower extremities and thin legs. It is a product that can promote the return of venous blood to the heart. The material is DuPont Lycra from the United States and nylon yarn imported from Japan. Medical sequential decompression compression stockings establish the highest support pressure on the ankle and gradually decrease along the legs. Reduce to 70%-90% of the maximum pressure value in the calf and 25%-45% of the maximum pressure value in the thigh. This decreasing change in pressure can make the lower extremity venous blood return, effectively alleviating or improving the lower extremity veins And the pressure on the venous valve.


For people

1. Those who stand for a long time: teachers, traffic police, shopping guides, beauticians, doctors, nurses, etc.

2. Those who sit still for a long time: IT people, white-collar workers, civil servants and other office workers-standing or sitting still for a long time: due to muscle fatigue and gravity, the blood flow in the legs is not smooth, and the blood viscosity increases, leading to venous diseases of the lower limbs. .

3. Pregnant women and people who take contraceptives for a long time-Hormonal changes in the body during pregnancy, blood volume increase by more than 20%; fetus and enlarged uterus compress the pelvic vein and iliac vein, weight gain during pregnancy, leg vein pressure increases, Causes poor blood return, leading to venous diseases of the lower extremities.

4. People who travel frequently, take airplanes, long-distance buses, and flight attendants-commonly referred to as economy class syndrome, due to weightlessness at high altitude, causing poor blood return in the legs, leading to venous diseases of the lower extremities, and pulmonary embolism in severe cases.

5. Obese people-due to high blood cholesterol and blood lipids, blood viscosity increases, and excessive weight makes it difficult for venous blood to return to the heart, leading to venous diseases of the lower extremities.

6. People who have suffered from venous diseases of the lower extremities-because the veins are already in a diseased state, they must be improved through treatment, otherwise the condition will continue to develop.

7. People with high incidence of deep vein thrombosis in lower limbs-post-major surgery patients, patients with malignant tumors, hemiplegia patients, women and parturients in late pregnancy, patients with lower limb fractures, patients with severe infections, the elderly, etc.

8. People who have the need for shaping and beautiful legs and those who have undergone liposuction of the legs-have the effect of retracting, gathering, pressing and lifting the legs, preventing sagging, raising the leg line, correcting the leg shape, and reducing the leg circumference.



1. Restore the function of the lower extremity vein after surgery. Prevent the recurrence of varicose veins.

2. Eliminate edema after various operations and promote wound healing.

3. Eliminate the swelling and soreness caused by varicose veins and venous blood reflux disorder of the lower limbs, so that the darkened and hardened skin gradually improves and the ulcerated skin heals. To restore the tortuous veins with mild varicose.

4. Prevent deep vein thrombosis of lower extremities in patients who are bedridden for a long time.

5. Eliminate lower extremity edema in pregnant women in the third trimester, prevent varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis in lower extremities after delivery.

6. Prevent and treat economy class syndrome of passengers flying by plane.

7. It can reduce the soreness and discomfort of the lower limbs and prevent varicose veins of the lower limbs for long-term standing, sitting, and heavy physical labor.


How to dress

1. Reach into the sock with one hand, pinch the two-inch part of the toe, and turn the sock to the heel with the other hand.

2. Turn over most of the sock tube and stretch it smoothly so that the foot can easily reach into the toe of the sock.

3. Two thumbs on the inside of the sock, four fingers grasp the sock body, put the foot into the sock, two thumbs to hold the sock outwards, four fingers and thumb coordinate to pull the sock toward the ankle, and put the heel of the sock correctly s position.

4. Turn the legs of the socks backwards and pull them upwards in order. After putting them on, put the socks close to the Buddha.

Pay special attention when putting on or taking off the compression stockings, do not let the diamond ornaments or long nails scratch the compression stockings.

Please cut your hands and feet and nails frequently. In the dry season, prevent the skin from cracking on the heel and avoid scratching the compression stockings. In addition, always check whether the shoes are flat to prevent unnecessary wear of the compression stockings caused by debris and prolong the service life. Wash with neutral detergent in warm water, do not wring out, squeeze it by hand or use a dry towel to absorb excess water, dry it in a cool place, do not put it in the sun or artificial heat source to dry or bake. For any high-quality product, only meticulous care can extend its service life and achieve the best results.



1. Pay special attention to don’t scratch the surface of jewelry and nails when putting on or taking off pressure stockings

2. Prevent dry and cracked heel skin in dry season

3. Frequently check whether the shoes are flat to prevent unnecessary wear caused by debris


Washing instructions for compression stockings

1. Wash with neutral detergent in warm water, do not wring out, use a dry towel to absorb excess water

2. Dry naturally in the shade

3. Don't be in the sun, and don't use ironing


The essential difference between compression socks and stovepipe socks:

1. The difference in function:

Compression stockings are used to treat varicose veins, vasculitis, venous thrombosis and other venous diseases of the lower extremities.

Stovepipe socks are used for thin legs and beautiful legs.

2. The materials of compression socks and stovepipe socks are different:

Compression stockings are medical elastic stockings made of special materials with high elasticity such as DuPont Lycra and cotton.

Stovepipe socks are made of common materials such as nylon silk, so the price of stovepipe socks is also cheap.

3. The units of compression socks and stovepipe socks are also different

Compression stockings are divided into units according to pressure, and compression stockings are generally divided into

The primary pressure is mainly to prevent varicose veins;

The secondary pressure is mainly the treatment of mild varicose veins and the recovery treatment after varicose vein surgery;

The third grade pressure is mainly the treatment of severe varicose veins.

The unit of stovepipe socks is Deny number (D), such as 180D, 240D, 280D, 360D, 420D, etc. In theory, the higher the Danny number, the greater the pressure. But it is not that the greater the pressure, the better the effect.
