For Medical concerns, including diabetes, edema, varicosity, thrombosis, sheer injuries, venous stasis ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers, the compression level may vary according to the recommendation of your physician. 

The Medical Socks come in two major variations:

Medium Compression (20-30 mmHg) 

or 

High Compression (a unique sock/sleeve combination that provides 30-40 mmHg).

If you are an amputee, you can also consider our specially designed prosthetic shrinker, which brings you all the benefits of our premium materials.
