Wearing compression socks is a great way to be proactive about your health regardless of your occupation, but for nurses, compression socks are essential. Nurses typically spend most of their 10- or 12-hour shifts on their feet with little to no resting time. Because a nurse’s mobility directly impacts the health and safety of their patients, it is extremely important for nurses to focus on their own health and well-being.
VIM & VIGR compression legwear is scientifically designed to support your legs all day, every day. Nurses benefit significantly from the all-day support that compression socks provide. Using integrally-knit graduated compression, VIM & VIGR compression socks apply therapeutic pressure that starts at the ankle and gradually eases above. By squeezing the leg from the bottom up, VIM & VIGR compression socks for nurses can help increase the circulation of freshly oxygenated blood back to your legs.
Being on your feet, as most nurses are, all day, puts a 20% greater strain on the circulatory system and on the legs and feet, which can cause fatigue and soreness. Compression socks for nurses alleviate achiness and heaviness, energize legs, and prevent swelling. Happy legs and feet mean healthier nurses – which is a win for everyone!
