Compression for Healthcare & Rehabilitation

Medical-grade compression has become a vital aspect of healthcare and now forms part of the NICE guidelines (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) for risk reduction of DVT in hospitals. The gctech standard is your guarantee that our compression products meet medical-grade standards with a proven and correct compression profile. In healthcare terms, compression helps with:

  • Injuries - any lower leg swelling
  • Reduction of the risk of DVT
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Varicose veins
  • Heavy/tired legs
  • Peripheral oedema (swelling)

Our medical team has strong links to the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health and UCLH. VR socks are regularly prescribed by doctors all over the world. However, medical-grade compression socks should only be used in association with other treatment; always follow the advice of your doctor.
