One of the major challenges with employing compression therapy is to create a balance between the effectiveness of the compression being applied and the level of comfort the patient experiences.
Poor or non-compliance of wearing compression stockings is a significant problem with a high number of patients.
This can often be attributed directly to discomfort from donning and doffing compression stockings and while wearing them.
For many decades compression therapy has been recognized by the medical community as a very important tool in the management of venous disorders.
Graduated compression stockings can not only boost venous blood circulation, but are also beneficial in relieving symptoms of tiredness, achiness, heaviness and swelling in the legs. By alleviating many of these symptoms they can also prevent or delay the beginning of skin changes or ulcers.
