• The socks are designed with graduated sizing that meets targeted stretch measurements at specific points along the leg.
• Graduated compression promotes venous blood flow by forcing the veins to constrict to a normal diameter and allowing the values to properly function--thus aiding the blood flow back toward the lungs and heart, preventing blood from pooling in the legs and feet.
• A moderate compression profile applies the most compression at the ankle and then decreases in tension as it goes up to the calf.
• The compression helps to relieve fatigue and swelling, while making you feel more energized and comfortable all day.
• Studies have shown that compression socks 25 mmHg and lower may help diabetic persons with lower extremity edema without compromising vascularity. Source.

How MediPeds® Moisturizing Socks are Effective
• Aloe vera is commonly used as a hydrating agent in creams and lotions.
• Aloe vera and aromatherapy scented oils are encapsulated into a micro bead and then embedded into the fiber.
• As the sock is worn, the aloe vera is released from the micro bead when it comes in contact with the skin.
