Healthy Leg Depot: Medical and support compression stockings for venous disorders

Medical and Support Compression Stockings

At Healthy Leg Depot, our goal is to provide a far simpler interface than currently exists in the marketplace online. We believe we have created a compression stocking outlet which is uncluttered and focused on ease of use for the customer.

A new site has been launched for information and purchasing of medical and support compression stockings at http://www.healthylegdepot.com. Research suggests that compression stocking sales and usage could be far greater if customers weren't confused as to which products to buy. Confusion translates into a lower than acceptable level of patient compliance with compression therapy. Support hosiery manufacturers have created multitudes of styles and designs aimed at providing products that customers will want to wear, but the issue exists that there are now far too many confusing product attributes. For example, a single pair of properly graduated medical compression pantyhose might be available in ultra sheer, sheer, opaque, maternity, form-fitted, four or more different strengths, nine or more different colors, and as many as sixteen different sizes. This can be daunting for a first-time buyer.

"At Healthy Leg Depot, our goal is to provide a far simpler interface than currently exists in the marketplace online. Using a number of different tools, we believe we have created a compression stocking outlet which is uncluttered and focused on ease of use for the customer", says Bahadir Gonul - Chief Technology Officer.

One such tool allows the buyer to reduce the number of potential products within any category. For example: A man is told that, due to his increased venous blood pressure caused by his prolonged standing at work, and based on a family history of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), he needs to wear compression garments at least five (5) days per week, in order reduce the swelling and prevent more serious complications. As is often the case from many General Practitioners and Family medicine doctors, a specific strength was not suggested. In the men's compression stockings section, he can filter a pool of thirty eight (38) products by style or strength. Further, all strengths are fully explained so he may choose the most applicable to his condition. In this case, the Healthy Leg Depot pool of products to choose from has been limited to four (4) products, and the differences between the four are simply the specific colors and aesthetic look that he desires.

Medical compression socks and stockings treat and prevent a variety of venous insufficiency conditions such as varicose veins, swollen ankles and feet, lower extremity swelling during pregnancy, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and tired/aching legs and feet. Support hosiery, beginning at a lower strength compression stocking, is great for prevention of conditions caused by long distance travel (limited ability to move creates a slowing of the blood-flow and therefore swelling in the lower extremities and increased potential for clotting).

Healthy Leg Depot sells only the finest in support and medical compression socks and stockings for treatment and prevention of DVT, swollen ankles and feet, varicose veins, and an array of other venous insufficiency disorders. Professionally certified fitters are available via website at http://www.healthylegdepot.com or by phone at 888-LEG-DEPOT (888-534-3376).
