Therapeutix compression knee highs are ideal when travelling or suffering mild oedema, tired legs or slight varicose veins. Comfort is assured with the inclusion of a wide comfort band, a reciprocated heel and a compression free toe area. The reciprocated heel prevents the knee-high from slipping or twisting on the leg. A wide comfort top keeps the knee high up without cutting into the calf area of the leg. Ensure knee highs are pulled up to just below the knee. The graduated compression supports/massages the leg and stimulates the blood flow, to help reduce swelling and help prevent dvt.
