Have you ever plucked a pair of socks from your Christmas stocking? In most cases, you’d probably wish you hadn’t — they are on about the same excitement scale as handkerchiefs.
However, if Santa had kindly delivered TXG compression socks, I suspect your reaction would be quite different. That’s because TXG compression socks can make life much more comfortable — particularly if you suffer from a health condition like diabetes, deep vein thrombosis or lymphedema.
What are graduated compression socks?
TXG socks & sleeves are manufactured from a selection of high-quality fabrics that apply pressure to the legs, ankles and feet. They offer socks with a variety of styles, compression levels and colours and sizes — everyday socks through to socks and sleeves designed specifically for athletes and active sports enthusiasts.
Graduated Compression socks fit tightest at the ankles and become less constrictive towards the knees. By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles the circulating blood is forced through narrower circulatory channels. As a result, the arterial pressure is increased, which causes more blood to return to the heart, this increases blood circulation and provides a range of medical, sporting and health benefits which includes; boosted energy levels, reduced swelling, tiredness and aching in the legs from varicose veins and faster recovery from injuries.
You don’t need to have a health condition to benefit from wearing compressions socks. Athletes have worn compression wear for years — those tight fluorescent leg sleeves and arm sleeves aren’t just fashion statements. What they are wearing is compression clothing, which aids athletes’ performances. The increased blood flow to their limbs speeds up muscle recovery and helps prevent injury.
What others say about us;
Dianne wore a pair of TXG compression socks while tramping over the Cascade Saddle in Aspiring National Park:
“They are great. They 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.”
Paula suffers from varicose veins:
“Before I started wearing TXG compression socks, I would notice a varicose vein would stand out on my lower leg after only being awake and walking around for about an hour. Now I wear them 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.”
Jeff is a sports enthusiast and he too wears TXG socks:
“I went for a 10km run/walk on the gym treadmill on Friday and went for a 27km walk on Sunday. There was a significant positive difference wearing the TXG socks as opposed to regular gym socks. My feet, ankles and calves felt much more supported than normal and those areas were much less tired when I finished — at times my feet and calves felt tingly and bouncy.”
If you suffer a health condition affecting blood circulation in your legs; if you are a keen walker or sportspersons, you just might want to try a pair of compression socks. While you’re at it, send this article to Santa.
