Compression socks are a type of protection wear that enclose your foot and calf, as well as the knee or up to the thigh. A good-quality compression sock not only protects your skin, it also helps enhance your blood circulation, helps guard against deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and reduces sports-related injuries.
More people, especially sport lovers, nowadays see many benefits in compression socks, and don’t mind spending more on a good pair. The properties and performance of compression socks can be defined by the compression value in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and the change in compression value according to girth. Derived from the pressure exerted by socks at the ankle and the relative pressures at the calf and thigh, the compression value must gradually decrease up the leg in order to improve good blood circulation.
