First Time Buyers Guide

So, it's your first time buying compression therapy products? This guide has been designed to get newbies like yourself headed in the right direction. Read the tips below and you'll quickly find yourself an expert!

Tip 1 - You need to choose which compression is best suited for you. Use our Compression Guide to determine the appropriate compression.

Tip 2 - Why not learn more about the brands we offer? Visit our manufacturer's page and click on a manufacturer to learn more about them and to view the products they have to offer.

Tip 3 - Each product listing on our site has description & sizing sections found below the 'add to cart' button. Be sure to click on the sizing tab to view the appropriate sizing chart. With graduated compression stockings (support hose), it is important to have an accurate fit. This improves the efficacy and comfort of the product.

Tip 4 - Measure your legs in the morning. The goal is to prevent swelling. Many people with venous (circulatory) disorders experience increased swelling as the day progresses. Since we are looking to take a preventive step, it is important to take your measurements first thing in the morning BEFORE the swelling begins.

Tip 5 - When in doubt, ask. We have certified fitters available for consultation. They have been trained to assist you in selecting an appropriate product. For further assistance including personal product recommendations, please contact us and we will gladly offer insight and purchasing assistance.
