What Level of Compression Do FITLEGS AES Grip Compression Stockings Offer?
These FITLEGS Compression Socks offer a compression level of 18mmHg.

How Do the FITLEGS AES Grip Socks Help Avoid Falls?
These stockings are made with a silicone grip sole to keep you stable and on your feet, even when your legs are feeling fragile. This makes them ideally suited to users at risk of falls, such as the elderly or people with mobility impairments. The grip is also made to stop before the heal, in order to void causing pressure sores.
