Fatigue, heaviness in the legs and the risk of varicose veins — this is faced by many people. The risk increases if you spend a lot of time on your feet, and your other load is not too diverse. But you can help yourself! Let’s take a look at how compression clothing can be useful for you.
How compression stockings work
The main thing that compression garments do is increase venous outflow. The pressure of elastic fibers supports akened veins, prevents their further stretching and expansion, normalizes blood circulation and prevents the formation of blood clots. Compression stockings are especially needed if you spend a lot of time on your feet due to your occupation.
Why choose Elasma golfs
Specialists of the Institute of Surgery named after A.I. A.V. Vishnevsky RAMS. The effectiveness of the impact is confirmed by clinical studies.
Elasma products have all the necessary certificates of conformity, registration certificates and patents. Elasma knitar is made in Russia, which means that the implementation of all medical and quality standards is under the control of manufacturers.
And it’s not that knee socks come in two popular colors, black and nude, and won’t wrinkle while you’re aring them. The knee socks are designed so that the pressure from the foot to the calf muscle is evenly reduced — this provides a better effect for proper blood circulation. A wide comfortable elastic band is needed to keep the socks on the legs and prevent excessive pressure. All this together brings relief to the legs, reduces slling and reduces pain.
Natural cotton content
Knee-highs are made using LYCRA ® elastomeric fiber and natural cotton, which guarantees comfort and durability: cotton — 40%, polyamide — 35%, lycra — 25%. A significant content of natural cotton (40%) in the stockings reduces the risk of allergic reactions, and the material with improved vapor and moisture exchange allows the skin to breathe.
For the first time, it is not always clear how to put on compression stockings, especially the second compression class — they are quite tight, because they create a noticeable pressure. In this case, a specially designed instruction is included in the package, where it is explained step by step how to make putting on more comfortable and simple. Instructions are included with each box of compression stockings for women and men.
