What is Compression Hosiery

These socks/stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the garment.

These do not have to be your grandma’s socks! With over 15+ styles, colours, sizes, and lengths, there is a variety to choose from to best suit your needs.

We are preferred providers with SIGVARIS Canada and have two staff members who are Certified Fitters.

If you say YES to any of the following, you are a candidate for compression socks:

  • Do you experience tired or achy legs?
  • Do you experience swollen feet, ankles, or legs?
  • Are you sitting or standing for long periods during the day?
  • Are you an expectant mother?
  • Are you a smoker or diabetic?
  • Are you a participant in endurance sports?
  • Do you carry excess weight?
