Do you currently have DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) or have been warned by a healthcare provider that you’re at risk of developing DVT? If so then it's good to know all the treatment options available for you. For many doctors in New Zealand, compression wear is an essential part of DVT treatment.

DVT symptoms can include pain, swelling, redness, warmness, and engorged superficial veins (‘spider veins’) in the leg.

Our graduated compression socks or stockings are recommended for those at risk of developing, showing symptoms of, or have been diagnosed with DVT.  TXG compression wear has been developed by a professional medical team to help with the discomfort and issues that occur from DVT.


There are many other factors that exacerbate the development of DVT, including age, major surgery or cancer treatment. Other common contributing factors include sitting for long periods or traveling long distances. Some women experience DVT after pregnancy during the postpartum period. While those with central venous catheters, autoimmune disease, and other infections are also at risk. With such a broad range of causes, almost anyone can be impacted by DVT. If you are unsure whether compression wear can help with your DVT symptoms, please simply get in touch with us today to chat about how our compression socks may benefit you.


Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that occurs in a deep vein. DVT can occur anywhere but is most often seen in the leg. Symptoms include pain, swelling, redness and warmness in the affected area - usually your calf or thigh. However, some people do not experience any signs or symptoms. DVT may go away naturally, but serious complications can develop when a thrombosis dislodges and travels to the lungs to become a life-threatening pulmonary embolism.

If you have DVT,  your doctor will usually prescribe a regime of anti-coagulating medication and exercise to prevent clots from occurring. Compression stockings are effective for treating DVT by helping improve blood flow, reducing swelling and pain. There have also been studies linking the use of compression stockings and DVT prevention in the decreased amount of hospitalised patients.

Diane's TXG Sock Feedback

"They are great, stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I will always wear them now."


"I've been doing an Alpine tramp over Cascade Saddle in Aspiring National Park & I wore the TXG compression socks. They are great. Stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I endured no lactose build up in my calf muscles despite the very steep ascent and descent. I will always wear them now and have recommended them to my tramping friends."

Reena's TXG Sock Feedback

"After a long shift, my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore."


"After me being on my feet for 24 hours and wearing the TXG compression socks for that length of time; my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore. I wasn’t as physically tired either as I usually would be after working a 12-hour shift at the hospital. The socks are wonderful and far exceeded my expectations."

Aroha's feedback on her TXG sleeves

"I love my arm and calf sleeves, they help me at hockey"


"I purchased some arm sleeves and calf sleeves and love them. Trialled them out last week during my many games of hockey and at an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament to see if they’ll help me at my next hockey tournament and I can safely say yes, I especially love the arm sleeves keeping my forearms from tightening which is so important when dribbling. They also help at the gym during any arm work where I grip tightly and my forearms tighten. Usually, I would fatigue and be forced to stop, but I get far more out of my arms."

Paula's feedback on her TXG socks

"I am able to stand longer during the day and I am less tired at the end of the day."


"Before I started wearing them I would notice that I had a varicose vein that would stand out on my lower leg. I wear my socks all day and at the end of the day when I take them off, there is no vein standing out on my leg. The spider veins are still there but even those are less prominent too I am able to stand longer during the day as well. They are probably one of the best things I have bought."
