During Long periods of immobility (standing or sitting), calf muscles are not contracting properly to squeeze the veins carrying blood from the lower limbs back to the heart. This results in poor blood circulation in the legs. Circulation problems may lead to varicose vein, swelling, or edema. Edema is common, particularly in elderly people. Prolonged standing, pregnancy, obesity and long travel are common causes of edema. Paksaman compression stocking helps improve blood circulation, reduce leg pain, edema and discomfort. It also reduces the risk of varicose vein as a preventive stocking.
