Sleeve Design and Care

Truform's 6 Points of Compression

 

Truform measures support values at precise locations along the length of the stocking - 4 points for below knee, 6 points for thigh length and pantyhose styles. These measurements help insure that the compression or support knit in to the stocking is distributed properly along the length of the leg – greatest at the ankle, reducing upwards toward the heart. 


 Multiple measurements guarantee that all Truform legwear styles are comfortable to wear, and provide the proper amount of elastic compression therapy, in all the right places. Graduated compression stockings, when properly sized and fit, are designed to help improve circulation, which in turn, will help soothe tired, heavy legs, reduce swelling, and relieve varicose veins.

Washing and Care

Wash gently with mild soap or detergent in lukewarm or cold water. Do not wring or twist. Rinse until water is clear. Roll in a towel to remove excess moisture. Dry flat away from heat and sunlight.
