Compression Garments

Programs that pay for or provide special stockings which prevent swelling, provide comfort and promote circulation of blood in the feet and legs in order to reduce the incidence of leg ulcers, thrombosis disorders such as varicose veins and other problems associated with poor circulation. A medical doctor generally indicates the necessary compression ratio which is greatest in the foot and lessens further up the leg.
