What are the medical compression stockings?2019-03-11T16:11:24-04:00

Compression stockings are a specialized hosiery designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Compression stockings are elastic garments that apply pressure gradually –greatest at the ankle and decreases proportionately up the limb, worn around the leg, compressing the limb.

Compression stockings and socks nowadays are very fashionable and look just like regular hosiery and dress socks.

At Comfort Clinic, we carry compression stockings in wide range of styles, knits, textures and fashionable colors – for both women and men. Our certified compression garments fitters will recommend compression product to best suit your needs, select proper size and length to achieve the perfect anatomical fit.

Thrombo-Embolic Deterrent Hose (T.E.D) or anti-embolism stockings 10-20mmHg (ideally 18mmHg at the ankle, 14mmHg at the calf) – for use by the non-ambulatory (bed or wheelchair confined) user to prevent clotting and embolism (vein obstruction). Teds are of little therapeutic value to the ambulatory (active) user.

Do I need to consult a specialist before buying my compression garment?2019-03-08T14:27:03-04:00

Simply put – yes. Even though compression stockings and socks look a lot like regular ones nowadays, they don’t fit the same way. The size of your ankles, calves, thighs, the length of your legs, as well as the compression strength must be used to determine the proper size of your compression garment. Poorly fitted compression stockings may be simply ineffective and, in some cases, even harmful. Compression Garments Fitters are trained specialists who have an extensive knowledge of compression therapy, fitting techniques and compression garments. They will measure you, select the right product and educate you on proper use, application and care.

Who needs to wear compression stockings or socks?2019-03-11T16:17:44-04:00

People with certain leg problems or at risk for blood clots in the legs, known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) must wear compression garments. These clots can also develop as a result of prolonged bed rest (such as after surgery), sitting for long periods (such as on a plane, at work, etc.), use of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy, pregnancy, family history of DVT, inflammatory bowel disease, and certain genetic clotting disorders. Other groups that can benefit from wearing compression stockings include people with varicose veins, venous leg ulcers, or leg swelling (edema), as well as those with circulatory problems. People who spend a lot of time on their feet will find that the stockings improve comfort. They’re also popular among some athletes, such as runners and basketball players.

What is the difference between anti-embolism and graduated compression stockings?2019-03-08T14:27:03-04:00

Anti-embolism stockings (TED) are designed specifically for non-mobile patients or those confined to a bed to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis. Ted stockings are not gradient: the same compression throughout the length of the garment and offer minimal compression 8-18mmHg (millimeters of mercury). Graduated compression stockings are medically therapeutic and designed for people who are mobile. They offer graduated compression, starting at the ankle and decreasing proximally. Compression levels range up to 50+mmHg. Greater compression is often necessary due to the increased effects of gravity on the circulatory system in a mobile patient.

How compression stockings work?2019-03-08T14:27:03-04:00

Graduated compression stockings and socks provide necessary external support to the vein walls and work in conjunction with calf muscle pump. Compression stockings provide circulation while helping to minimize and control leg and ankle swelling.
