When someone says the words “compressions stockings” what comes to mind? If we had to guess, you’re picturing…

Were we close?

At ArtMed, we cannot stress to our clients enough the benefits of compression stockings, thigh highs and socks, but we understand their hesitation about wearing them. In the past, the options for compression legwear were very limited, which is why it’s hard to imagine anything other than what your grandmother may have worn. It is for this exact reason why we carry both Sigvaris and Lunatik Athletiks’ line of products. Both these companies are working to change the image of compression stockings by designing beautiful legwear that is still medically efficient.

Why Do We Recommend Wearing Compression Legwear?

Compression legwear are specially designed to improve blood flow in your legs. While this is especially important for individuals who have recently had surgery, we actually recommend compression legwear for anyone who is on their feet all day, sitting for long periods or flies frequently. For these individuals, the use of compression legwear is preventative. By increasing the blood flow in your legs, it reduces the uncomfortable swelling in your lower legs and the achy, heavy feeling that comes with it.

Lunatik Athletiks – A New Addition to ArtMed!

We cannot say it enough; we love Lukatik Athletiks line of fashionable, yet functional, compressing socks. Their team is dedicated to creating a medical grade compression sock that you not only won’t be embarrassed to wear, but can actually make you feel fashion forward and sexy! We can’t get enough of their fabulous designs. Their stockings come in both knee-high and thigh-high length and are available in both athletic grade compression and medical grade compression. What’s even better is that both Lunatik Athletiks’ and Sigvaris medical grade products are covered by most insurance plans!
