Jobst Compression Hosiery
Causes and risk factors of venous disorders:
– lack of exercise
– tight-fitting clothing
– high-heeled shoes
– alcohol consumption during air travel
– hot baths and excessive exposure to the sun
How you can help maintain good leg health
– Elevate feet and legs
– When resting, elevate your feet above you heart, keeping
your knees bent slightly so as not to inhibit blood flow
– Avoid crossing your legs, since this interferes with circulation.
Move your Feet
-When sitting or standing for long periods of time, especially during travel, wiggle your toes, flex your feet or tighten your calf muscles to improve blood flow
-Improve your circulation by starting a regimen of walking, swimming or other aerobic activity
Wear JOBST Gradient Compression Legwear
-Check with your healthcare insurance provider- your policy MAY cover some or all of the cost of your JOBST Compression Legwear.
Precision Therapy with Gradient Compression
Gradient compression applies a measured amount of compression to your leg as the basis for the management of venous disorders. Gradient compression legwear applies the most pressure at the ankle and then lessens this pressure up the length of the leg. This helps the blood in your veins flow back toward your hear, even if your veins and valves are damaged. Gradient compression therapy can help manage and prevent the progression of vein-related disorders.
JOBST Ready-to-Wear Compression Therapy products are available in four compression levels: 8-15, 15-20, 20-30 and 30-40 mmHg. Jobst Custom Garments can be ordered in an compression level: 20-90+ mmgh. The right compression level helps ensure that your venous condition is managed effectively.
JOBST Compression Therapy products are available in many styles, fabrics, sizes and colors, to meet the activity and lifestyle needs of today’s men and Women.
