Certified Fitting Specialists for Compression Stockings in Guelph

Compression stockings are specialized socks that are worn on the foot and leg to enhance return blood flow. They function to increase the return blood flow velocity and aid in venous valve effectiveness.

Medical Compression Socks

In most cases, compression socks are prescribed by your doctor.  We will take a series of measurements to ensure that the stockings fit perfectly.  For those with a unique anatomical shape, we can also have custom compression stockings made especially for you.

Medical compression socks create a pressure gradient from the most pressure around the ankle to the least pressure toward the cuff of the sock. While gravity continues to pull fluid and blood down the leg, the stockings create the opposite effect encouraging blood and fluid back up the leg.

Medical compression stockings have a variety of benefits including:

  • Helping travelers avoid swollen legs on planes
  • Reducing swelling and preventing tired and achy legs during long periods of standing
  • Eliminating pain and discomfort caused by varicose veins
  • Preventing blood clots on flights, during pregnancy, and in the follow-up period after joint replacement surgery
  • Treating varicose veins and swelling during pregnancy

At Applied Biomechanics, we recommend Venosan Compression Stockings for our patients.
