Compression socks are worn to prevent swelling and enhance blood circulation. They are commonly worn after surgery to prevent blood clotting and enhance healing of muscles and tendons cut in the procedure. Compression stockings cover from toes to below the knee, which is enough to control blood flow throughout the body.

Compression stockings provide uniform pressure on the whole leg hence enhancing blood circulation.

The different fittings ensure the compression stockings are not too tight to interfere with blood circulation and not too loose to compromise on its function.
