Orthopedic Stockings & Footcare
Orthopedic stockings are specialized hosiery used to support the foot, ankle and lower leg. These stockings are custom made to fit tightly around the affected limb and can be worn with or without socks.
Orthopedic Stockings & Footcare Benefits
Orthopedic stockings are often made of cotton, nylon, acrylic or Lycra and they can be secured above or below the knee using elastics. The pressure exerted on the leg through the stocking helps reduce swelling and prevent fluid from leaking into tissues below the knee.
The design also enables pressure relief on parts of the leg that may have been damaged by trauma or procedure.
