What Is Compression? More than just Compression Stockings

What is coaflogo-96x96mpression? When the subject comes up, people tend to have a lot of questions. “Compression” is when graduated pressure is built into the garment, increasing toward the top. This fosters circulation and emphasizes greater blood-flow, which reduces the rate of dangerous and sometimes life-threatening, blood-pooling and swelling.

While compression stockings specifically, are the most common type of compression garment, with the rapid growth of the industry, the standard knee-high compression stockings is quickly finding itself amongst an ever widening pool of compression products.

When it comes to compression, one names stands out among the rest. Starting with its founder, Conrad Jobst, who suffered from venous disease, JOBST® has remained deeply committed to improving the quality of life for those with Deep-Venous Thrombosis (DVT), Lymphederma, Thromboembolism,  athletic injuries, or any number of other conditions related to swelling.

Since Jobst’s 1950 founding, their line has grown to provide healing compression and comfort in the form of top-quality gloves, and arm sleeves, as well as athletic and standard socks and everything in between. Their complete line of sheer pantyhose are flattering, fashionable and utterly indistinguishable from their non-compression counterparts.

It’s no wonder. Over the years Jobst has been relentless in their pursuit of quality and perfection. They’ve come up with clever devices to make putting on compression articles easy.
