Compression Socks for DVT Prevention & Post-DVT

Proper medical-grade compression socks squeeze your calf muscle (your second heart) and veins with graduated pressure to help push blood up and out of your legs faster, preventing pooling. Wearing compression greatly reduces the chances of developing a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis - a potentially fatal blood clot). Our products come with gctech medical-grade compression technology built in, and are designed to keep you healthy and safe.

Compression socks are an effective way of preventing and treating DVT when manufactured and fitted to high standards.The veins in the legs are responsible for returning blood back to the heart. They have special valves to prevent backflow and are aided by the calf muscle  pumping blood back through the veins. Compression socks prevent pooling and backflow when the calf muscles are immobile.

In the acute stages after a DVT, the risks are managed with anti-coagulants and stronger levels of compression. As the person's condition stabilises, Class 1 compression may be prescribed for lifelong wear everyday to manage future risks.
