OPPO Compression Stockings

Graduated Compression Benefits

If you are standing or sitting for long periods of time, the calf muscles are not contracting to squeeze the veins carrying blood from the lower limbs back to the heart. OPPO Compression Stockings help promote blood circulation and improve valve function by applying graduated compression on the lower limbs. The pressure is strongest at the ankle and gradually decreases up the leg. The gradient compression exerted from the stockings provides a pumping effect to accelerate blood flow in the legs upward to the heart, reducing the accumulation of blood in the lower limbs and eliminating resultant edema.


Compression Level and Indications

OPPO Compression Stockings provide different strengths of compression levels from Class 1 to Class 3. The classes are prescribed in milimeters of mercury (mmHg), which represents the amount of pressure put on the legs by the stockings. Proper fit and pressure are essential for compression stockings to work effectively, comsumers should follow doctors's recommendation for the correct level of compression.


Varicosity and Its Symptoms

Varicosity results from a chronic increase in venous blood pressure, which dilates the vein. When the valves in the vein cannot function properly, blood flow reverses. The blood accumulates in the vein, increasing venous pressure and the possibility of congestion while causing while causing the vein to bulge and twist, i.e. varicosity.

The most frequent signs of varicosity:

1. Cosmetic symptoms:2. Physical symptoms:3. Functional symptons:
  • Discolored skin
  • Peeling skin
  • Skin ulcers
  • Superficial vein become visible               
  • Ankie edema
  • Muscle weakness
  • Itching or aching of the leg               
  • Heaviness of the leg
  • Cannot sit or stand for a long time
  • Imitation in prolonged positions
