What is Gradient Compression Hosiery
WHAT DOES GRADIENT COMPRESSION HOSIERY DO?
Graduated compression stockings are recommended to help energize tired, achy legs and to help reduce and prevent swelling. True gradient compression hosiery provides a controlled amount of pressure throughout the garment. The pressure or ‘squeeze’ is tightest at the ankle and gradually decreases up the leg. This gradient compression can help improve circulation, energize tired legs and feet, and assist in the prevention of swelling.
Many people interchange the words 'Support Pantyhose', ‘Compression Pantyhose’, 'Gradient Compression Pantyhose'. While they may sound similar, they are not the same; only gradient compression. While GOGO gradient compression hosiery products do offer shaping support they also offer the benefits of true gradient compression.
