How Does Graduated Compression Work?

Within the compression sock, the graduated compression technology begins with a slight squeeze at the foot, with the tightest compression being at the ankle. This is followed by a decreased, very specifically, and carefully measured squeeze moving up the remainder of the leg.

True graduated compression provides a good blood flow toward the heart, rather than letting your blood trickle and pool at the bottom of your ankles and feet - this even includes superficial veins. The benefit of this upward circulation forces blood to return and be oxygenated in the heart and lungs more efficiently than without the assistance of compression.

Compression socks also help to reduce the diameter of your major veins, resulting in an increased velocity and volume of blood flow. The pressure felt by compression socks is attributed to many factors, including the elasticity and stiffness of the compression material, the size and shape of our legs, and our movements and activities. This results in an increase in blood oxygen levels which will allow an enhanced athletic performance, assistance in muscle recovery, as well as simply leaving your legs feeling fresher and more energised than without the help of our compression socks.
