For a milder gradient, we carry 8-15 mmHg, 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg in our medical supply store. Each has various levels of support to better treat your needs. The 8-15 mmHg socks have mild support. These compression socks are best for providing relief for tired, achy legs. They prevent fatigue from long periods of sitting or standing, along with maintaining healthy, energized legs. 15-20 mmHg help in the prevention and relief of minor to moderate varicose veins and spider veins.
20-30 mmHg is a more firm compression, preventing and relieving vein issues, treating moderate to severe edema or lymphatic edema and helping manging active ulcers and manifestations of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). 20-30 mmHg also helps relieve superficial thrombophlebitis.
