to apply physiologically correct
pressure.In the case of Stockings
its purpose is to avoid swelling in
the patients legs and improve venous return.
Woven medical textiles are typically 
used for products requiring extreme 
stability;high durability over a 
significant number of loading cycles;or to

Compression Stocking for Varicose Veins.
Varicose Veins means unnaturally and 
permanently distended veins.It is a disease
of circulatory system.The human body has 
two kinds of Blood Vessels Arteries & veins.
Arteries carry oxygenated blood from heart 
to body parts and veins carry de-oxygenated
blood back towards heart.Due to long 
vertical gap between the heart and 
the legs the veins have to carryblood 
up a long vertical column.
For making the job easier the nature has 
broken the vertical column in to small 
sections by providing a number of 
one way valvesin the veins.Due to 
certain factors some times the
valves become inefficient,the walls of the 
veins loose their elasticity and become 
permanently distended.This condition is
known as:
Varicose Veins.
Graduated compression stockings helps in this case.
