Medical Socks Company: Compression Socks and Stockings

1. What are the medical graduated compression stockings? Who needs the medical graduated compression stockings? How to purchase and sell the medical graduated compression stockings?

Medical graduated compression stockings are made of a variety of elastic fibers, applying appropriate pressure to the legs to effectively return blood to the heart. When standing, due to the influence of gravity and own gravity on the feet, the veins are located low, and blood tends to accumulate in the blood vessels of the legs and cannot flow back to the heart smoothly, resulting in poor blood circulation, which can easily lead to the symptoms of varicose veins, edema, or blood vessel embolism. Therefore, the medical graduated compression stockings use gradually decreasing pressure from the ankle to imitate the return pattern of the veins, allowing the blood to flow back to the heart smoothly.

Medical graduated compression stockings are designed to "prevent blood accumulation in the legs", which are used to increase blood circulation, reduce leg swelling, and prevent thrombosis in the legs. 
For patients with long-term bed rest, varicose veins in the legs caused by pregnancy, bed rest after surgery, and related diseases such as varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, chronic lower extremity venous insufficiency, venous ulcers, peripheral edema, and lymphedema, the medical graduated compression stockings must be purchased by doctor's suggestion or a qualified medical equipment store with a prescription.

Because countries have different regulations for medical devices, most countries require vendors to have a license to sell them. The products need to pass the country’s medical device certification and other regulations, and manufacturers also need to pass international medical device manufacturing license certification (US FDA or the country's FDA, etc.). After the above conditions are qualified, the medical graduated compression stocking products with a medical license can be sold to major medical institutions and consumers.
 

2. What material is used for the medical graduated compression stockings? What's the special design for them?

The medical graduated compression stockings are usually made of Lycra-based elastic fiber, which is then blended with other functional fibers (bamboo carbon fiber, Coolmax fiber, far-infrared fiber, etc.) according to product requirements.
