Graduated Compression is the gradual decrease in overall pressure from the ankle as you move up the leg. Compression is strongest at the ankle.The elasticity of this hosiery provides a continuous massage that greatly helps to improve blood circulation. Wearing hosiery helps to avoid blood retention at the ankle and assists to prevent various leg diseases caused by weak blood circulation.
The compression values at the ankle, expressed in mm of mercury (mmHg) and hectoPascal (hPa), are in accordance with “the new measurement method” of the European Community “Medical Compression Hosiery” project.
As the ankle moves and stretches when walking, the garment alters its degree of compression. The presence of an anatomic heel in the SEGRETA hosiery range creates a stiffer and unelastic segment in the garment, that maintains the right compression value without restriction to the foot and yet still with maximum wearing comfort.
To correctly choose the right size you will need your exact WEIGHT, HEIGHT, SHOE SIZE, ANKLE, CALF & GROIN CIRCUMFERENCE.
STEP 1 : Refer to the height & weight measurements & Identify your size.
STEP 2 : Confirm that your shoe size, ankle, calf & groin measurements all fit within the range selected. If this is so then you have selected the correct size.
If either groin, calf or ankle measurements indicate size XSM, SML or MED & WEIGHT/HEIGHT indicate MED, then select the medium. In most cases Step 1 & 2 will show all measurements within the range selected.
If your ankle/calf or groin measurements indicate a larger size than your WEIGHT/HEIGHT indicates, then we would advise considering the FULL FIGURE style. If the FULL FIGURE style is also unsuitable then we would advise against using this product.
If there is a tendency for your calf or ankle to swell during the day, all measurements should be taken first thing in the morning.
