Support Hold Ups
Recommended for anyone who enjoys the freedom that hold ups offer but fancy a helping hand, support hold ups are great at keeping legs ache free. A must for those who spend long periods of time sitting or standing still or those who encounter long journeys, support hold ups will relieve weary legs and even guard against health conditions associated with poor circulation. By applying pressure at the ankle which then gets lighter up the leg, your blood is pushed up toward the heart for a healthy circulation. This is called graduated compression, and is defined into support factors depending on how strong it is. Each product has its own support level next to it (ranging from Light to XX Firm) and then the support factor (from 6 to 22 – also known as mm Hg). If you’re not sure what level you’re in need of, we suggest starting off with the lightest support and moving up if you crave a little more lift. Any compression level higher than 25 requires a medical prescription, but we always advise checking with your doctor if opting for a factor above 15. Not after support hold ups?
