Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition. Sigvaris hose should be replaced after six months of normal wear. They start losing their effectiveness after that time. If they seem to be getting looser, than you are not receiving the maximum benefits of their compression strength.
Part of one of the largest variety of compression stockings in the industry, Sigvaris provides products that are ideal for every lifestyle and specialized need.
The Sigvaris 182 Cushioned Cotton Socks are a casual and comfortable leg therapy for Men. Graduated compression and the cushioned, shock-absorbing sole make this sock ideal for preventing foot and leg fatigue from prolonged periods of standing and walking.

- 68% Supima® Cotton is breathable, soft, and hypo-allergenic
- Flat, low friction toe seams

- Soft, knit-in top band with high stretchability to reduce the feeling of 'pinching'

Caring for SIGVARIS Support Therapy and Active Therapy Products:
Using a laundry bag, wash in warm water using mild detergent on the gentle cycle.
Do not use bleach or fabric softeners.
For women's hosiery, hand washing is suggested.
For best results with cotton and trouser socks, turn socks inside out before washing.
Air drying is preferable.About Leg Health:
Many factors contribute to the overall health of our legs: heredity, weight, age, diet and activity level. But it's the internal function of the legs that also plays an important role: calf muscles, arteries, veins, and vein valves--the internal highway of blood and oxygen flow.
The flow of blood in the veins is assisted by a series of one-way valves. The valves remain open when the blood flows toward the heart, and then closed after blood passes through. Over time, an increase in pressure can stretch the vein walls. If a vein becomes enlarged and over-stretched the valves cannot close properly, causing blood to leak back down into the lower legs, resulting in poor circulation.
If this happens you may begin to develop symptoms, such as:
- Heavy, tired, aching legs
- Swollen legs and/or ankles
- Sensation of warmth in the legs
- Tingling or cramping of the legs
- Dull or sharp pain in the calf
- Small varicose veins and spider veins
Using Compression Therapy:
Graduated compression stockings and socks are important to leg health. They help minimize muscle aches, swelling, and symptoms of fatigue. Exercise and a healthy lifestyle will strengthen your legs, but wearing graduated compression stockings or socks will support the internal function of the veins.

MetroMedicalOnline offers a great selection of the most well known and respected brands of compression stockings and garments for every lifestyle and medical condition as well as many accessories to assist with donning issues and care of compression garments.
We recommend that donning gloves always be worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment. Other people prefer to use a donning aid like the Juzo Slippie Gator or Jobst Stocking Donner.
We also recommend either Sigvaris, Juzo, or Jobst Jolastic Special Washing Solutions for maintaining the quality of compression garments. Jobst Jolastic Wash is formulated to remove oil, body acids, and skin salts quickly and easily without damage to the fabric. This specially designed solution will help extend the life of all elastic garments. The ingredients in Jobst ensure excellent soil removal and are mild to the user's hands.
