In cooperation with leading vascular specialists, JOBST® engineers developed the JOBST® Gradient Compression Seamless Anti-Embolism Elastic Stocking to combat thromboembolism. This stocking uses 18 mmHg gradient compression to apply the greatest amount of pressure at the ankle and gradually lessen as it goes up the leg. Gradient compression helps improve the ability of the veins to move blood back toward the heart. The use of JOBST® Anti-Embolism Elastic Stocking is an accepted prophylaxis for minimizing the risk of thromboembolism in hospitalized patients requiring bed rest or prolonged periods of immobilization. Thigh high style provides additional coverage and support.
- Accurate gradient compression therapy minimizes the risk of DVT (blood clots)
- Soft, breathable fabric is lightweight and comfortable
- Reinforced heel makes stocking more durable Latex free formula helps avoid allergic reactions
Compression: 18 mmHg
