Compression Socks

All practitioners at EOC are specially trained to measure and fit for custom and off the shelf compression products. Whether you suffer from tired aching legs because your occupation involves too much time standing or sitting, or suffer from more serious problems like swelling, varicose veins and venous disease, our specialists can fit all ages, genders, shapes and sizes from tall to petite, large frame to small. We offer a wide range of colors and styles to meet your needs and lifestyle.

Support stockings provide a graduated compression that helps blood flow from the lower leg towards the heart. Compression is firmest at the ankle, and gradually reduces as the distance from the ankle increases.

Graduated compression stockings cannot cure varicose veins, but they can prevent further vein deterioration. Long-term use of support stockings is recommended, even after leg vein surgery, to prevent the condition developing again.

Graduated compression stockings should not be worn at night unless under a doctor’s advice. If your toes start to tingle while wearing compression stockings, you should remove the stockings and consult your EOC specialist. The stocking fabric should be evenly distributed over the leg and not pulled over tightly at the top. You should never fold over the band at the top of the stocking as this will constrict leg circulation. Similarly, you should not cut or modify the stocking fabric as this will alter the compression.

After washing, do not dry your stockings in a clothes dryer. Refer to the manufacturer’s information for laundry details.

It is important that you are fitted with the correct size support stocking, according to the properly taken measurement.

An open-toe stocking is not recommended for people with bunions or very broad or fat feet, because the band across the foot may become restrictive and uncomfortable. It is recommended that Support stockings should be replaced every 6 months as the elasticity of the fabric will loosen over time, and may not provide the required compression.

You should have your legs re-measured every 6 months when having your stockings replaced. Measurements are best taken as early as possible in the morning. If you have walked to EOC, you should rest your legs horizon-tally for as long as possible before being measured.

Graduated compression stockings are designed to be firm and supportive. Moving up or down a size is not recommended, as the amount of compression applied to the lower leg will not be correct.
