Comrad socks are not a medical product and we recommend you speak to your physician about what level mmHg you may need. Our socks are 15-20mmHg, which is a moderate level of compression support and can assist in decreased swelling and fatigue for diabetics.
Yes! If your legs feel like they are pulsing a little bit, you're feeling that increase in circulation from the compression. However, they shouldn't feel uncomfortable. If you feel like you want to exchange for another size, please contact us and we'll make sure you're happy!
No problem! Firstly, we’d love to prevent that from happening, so please reference our size guide. If you accidentally ordered the wrong size, or find the size you ordered doesn’t fit as expected, contact our happiness team and we will happily facilitate an exchange or return. email@example.com
Typically graduated compression socks should not be worn as sleeping. This is because their gradient pressure is specifically designed to benefits you while standing or while moving. Anti-embolism stockings are most commonly used in situations while horizontal or ambulatory for prolonged periods. Though anti-embolism stockings are often confused with compression stockings - they are actually different!
Compression stockings are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address a different need. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). It's an old way of measuring pressure but for some reason we still utilize this for measuring the pressure of a garment
Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the number within a given range, the tighter the sock will feel and the more support it will provide. For example, a 15-20 mmHg sock will offer more support and will be slightly tighter on your leg than a 10-15 mmHg sock.
We use 15-20mmHg a.k.a." the sweet spot" because its a level of compression that benefits anyone who is on their feet for long periods of time or travels but is not considered a medical device or product.
because its the sweet spot! Its a moderate amount of compression that provides all the benefits from increased circulation in the legs but isn't uncomfortable. People that wear 20-30 mmHg tend to find the socks to be uncomfortable.
Graduated compression socks with a certified mmhg rating between 11 and 21 mmHg are able to reduce or totally prevent swelling and may therefore be recommended for people with a profession connected with long periods of sitting or standing. Check out the research linked here
Comrad socks are designed to provide energizing support by using certified graduated compression. Graduated compression helps reduce swelling and discomfort by increasing circulation to the legs and feet.
