The name of the pregnant women's socks is medical sequential decompression elastic stockings. The maternal socks are products that promote the function of venous blood return to the heart. Most of the materials are DuPont Lycra and nylon silk. The maternity socks establish the highest support pressure in the ankle and gradually decrease along the leg. The calf is reduced to 70%-90% of the maximum pressure value, and reduced to 25%-45% of the maximum pressure value at the thigh. This diminishing change in pressure can cause venous return of the lower extremity, effectively alleviating or improving the vein of the lower extremity. And the pressure of the venous valve.


What are the benefits of wearing maternity socks?


1. The consequences of increased blood volume in the legs (varicose veins, edema, discomfort) can be prevented or alleviated.
