What does gradient compression hosiery do?

Medical gradient compression stockings improve venous and lymphatic blood flow. THERAFIRM stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure, which is greatest at the ankle of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better venous blood flow, which in turn helps to control swelling, varicosities, leg fatigue and other problematic leg conditions.
