Who Can Benefit from the JOBST for Men Explore Compression Stockings?

If you want versatility from your compression stockings, than the Men Explore Black Compression Stockings are the product for you. They have a sleek appearance that looks no different to a typical pair of calf socks, and are as appropriate for wear on a workday as they are a holiday.

What Conditions Are the JOBST Explore Compression Stockings Suitable For?

The JOBST Explore Compression Stockings have a Class 2 compression class, and can therefore be used to treat a range of mild to moderate venous and lymphatic conditions. These indications are listed below.

Indications

The JOBST Explore Compression Stockings are suitable for the following applications and conditions:

  • Chronic leg pain or fatigue
  • Varicose veins
  • Swelling caused by mild oedema
  • Alongside certain surgical procedures (e.g. sclerotherapy)
  • To aid in the treatment of orthostatic or postural hypotension

Why Should You Choose the JOBST Compression Stockings for Men?

  • Effective compression stockings with the aesthetic of standard knee high socks
  • Suitable for wear during work, sports and leisure
  • Shaped to provide the most comfortable wear possible for the male body
  • Broad knee welt prevents the stockings from wrinkling or sliding down your leg
  • Specially designed toe area alleviates pressure to prevent discomfort
  • Flat seams help to significantly reduce irritation during long periods of wear
  • High quality cotton material is soft and gentle against the skin
  • Odour-control technology combats odour and perspiration

How Do the JOBST Compression Stockings Work?

Many factors including lack of movement and venous issues and can cause blood to stagnate in your extremities, leading to swelling and pain. To effectively relieve such symptoms with minimal intervention, the JOBST compression stockings apply gradient compression starting from your upper legs down to your ankles.

What Colour Are These Stockings?

These stockings have a sleek black colour, which is versatile enough for pairing with practically any outfit. This range also includes a number of other colours including dark grey and navy.

Will the JOBST Compression Stockings Prevent Perspiration and Odour?

These compression stockings have a slightly thicker composition than some others on the market. This is intended to improve their durability and comfort, making them suitable for casual and professional use, as well as more exuberant activities like sports.

Is It Easy to Put These Stockings On?

Compression stockings can be tricky to put on as they are made to fit so tightly against the skin. However, due to their soft yarns and natural cotton composition, the JOBST Explore Stockings can be slid on and off with minimal fuss.

Are The JOBST Explore Compression Stockings Comfortable?

The JOBST Explore knee high compression stockings are made to reduce comfort and pain in all areas. They are made from soft natural cotton material for a smooth, sleek feel, flat seams for reduced irritation, and are anatomically designed to suit the contours of your leg. 

Which Level of Compression Do I Need?

These stockings have a compression level of RAL Class 2, meaning they apply 23 - 32mmHg of gradient pressure to your legs. This is considered a moderate level of compression, and the level most often prescribed by doctors. It can treat a range of mild to moderate conditions including varicose veins, mild oedema and severe fatigue.

Want More JOBST?

The JOBST Explore range offers a wide selection of colours, and two different compression levels. If you like the general design but would like a different compression class or colour, take a look at the full JOBST Explore range.
