Compression Stockings, Support Hose and Pregnancy Tights from Reliable Medical Supply
Compression stockings, also known as “support hose,” and “pregnancy tights,” are used to control and manage the symptoms of lymphedema, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and venous insufficiency.
Compression stockings compress to promote blood flow and/or to prevent back flow of blood in your lower limbs. Support hose also help to support your heart to keep the blood moving properly, while working in conjunction with your leg muscles to increase blood flow.
Reliable Medical Supply carries Mediven and Jobst compression stockings. We offer compression levels of 8-15mmHg, 16-20mmHg, 20-30mmHg without a detailed prescription and 30-40mmHg & 40-50mmHg compression stockings based on the order of a physician.
These garments usually require a fitting to measure you for the appropriate compression stockings size. This measurement is most effective when completed in the morning.
Most insurance carriers will cover compression stockings, but all have different coverage criteria and supply limits. Most people can fit into a pre-made garment. However, if you don’t fit into a premade garment, we have certified custom fitters on staff. Pregnancy and plus size compression stockings are also available. Custom garments have a lead time of two to three weeks to order the product and have it ready for you.
