LIFESTYLE: Does poor circulation prevent you from enjoying things like riding a bike or working in the garden? Juzo??s medical compression garments are specifically designed to help manage symptoms like achy legs, swelling, and spider & varicose veins so you can go about your daily activities. DESIGN: This compression stocking is designed for both men and women, and has a graduated compression level of 20-30mmhg. It??s also available in both open and closed-toe options. COMPRESSION: To improve circulation, graduated compression stockings are often part of a management plan. As you move, graduated compression stockings apply pressure to support the calf muscle and outside of veins to help the valves close. The compression starts at the ankle and gradually decreases as it works its way up the leg, helping to improve circulation, manage your discomfort/swelling and give you more freedom to move. MATERIALS: This knee-high stocking is part of the Juzo Basic line that??s made to be stylish. The 2-way stretch elasticity is seamless and latex free which ensures the durability of this quality value stocking. Find the right fit for you with Juzo Compression Garments. CARE: Machine wash warm water. Machine dry on low heat. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.
