Alina Compression Stockings Knee High, Medium Compression
Alina Medical Compression Stockings provides pressure to the varicose with 100% pressure at ankle area. Compression lessens gradually up to calf (70%) and knee (40%), the graduated pressure hosiery will force the veins to be compressed in a normal and healthy way.
These stockings are designed to remedy impaired "Musculovenous pump" performance caused by incompetent leg vein valves. They are woven in such a way that the compression level is highest around the ankle and lessens towards the top of the hose.
Doctors will typically recommend these stockings for those who are prone to blood clots, lower limb edema, and blood pooling in the legs and feet from prolonged periods of sitting or inactivity.
They are worn by those who are ambulatory in most cases, where they assist the calf muscles to perform their pumping action more efficiently to return blood to the heart. In some cases, they are worn by those at increased risk of circulatory problems, such as diabetics, whose legs are prone to excessive swelling.
