One of the most popular products is compression socks. These are most commonly used by patients who need to reduce the risk of DVT, which is a blood clot found in the leg. When you wear these socks, you prevent leg swelling, which then lowers your risk of developing DVT. compression socks create a level of pressure that will also offer relief to those with tired legs, and sore ankles.
When it comes to compression sleeves, they generally serve the same purpose as socks but there’s a larger variety to choose from. There are long-sleeved tops, calf sleeves, arm sleeves, and so on. The fabric used in compression sleeves is usually a blend of spandex and nylon. When you wear this product on your upper body after exercising, you’ll help reduce swelling and inflammation.
Compression undergarments are most often worn by athletes who play sports and/or exercise regularly. These garments tend to be form-fitting and cover the entire waist, ranging from the mid to lower thigh area. Both female and male athletes will enjoy wearing these products as they provide extra comfort and help to prevent chafing.
