The medical abbreviation mmHg stands for “millimeters of mercury”, which is a unit of measurement for pressure. It’s the same unit of measurement for measuring blood pressure. Compression stockings use a range for how much pressure it provides, because the compression changes depending on your size.

True gradient compression stockings improve blood flow, and are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure, starting at the ankle, and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This promotes better circulation to help control swelling and relieve tired and achy legs.

✔     Improve circulation

✔     Help prevent swelling

✔     Energize legs and feet

Great for daily wear, travel, and sports, compression stockings help improve circulation without being too tight on your legs. 15–20mmHg compression garments come in a variety of materials to fit any lifestyle.
