What Does Gradient Compression Hosiery Do?

True gradient compression stockings improve blood flow. Therafirm stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the distal end (ankle) of the garment and gradually decreases towards the proximal end (top) of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better circulation to help control swelling and relieve tired achy legs.

Who Should Wear Gradient Compression Stockings?

People who have or are experiencing any of the following conditions can benefit from wearing gradient compression hosiery:

  • Expectant mothers
  • Tired, aching, fatigued legs
  • Swollen feet, ankles, and legs
  • Mild to moderate swelling
  • Stand or sit for long periods
  • Overweight

Additionally, many individuals without preceding conditions simply appreciate wearing our gradient compression hosiery. Most people love the way they make their legs feel. Patients should consult with their physicians before wearing compression stockings.

The Therafirm Advantage

True Gradient Compression

THERAFIRM® gradient compression hosiery delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking to promote better blood flow and assist in preventing swelling. THERAFIRM® is 100% made in the USA in our own manufacturing facilities.

Comfortable & Cool

All THERAFIRM® products are soft, cool and comfortable for all day wear.
– Our new light support product line, THERAFIRMlight™, features Lycra® and nylon fibers or cotton/microfiber blends for the softest garments while still providing shaping support.

– Core-Spun by THERAFIRM™ support socks are made with the superior moisture wicking fibers CoolMax® or X-STATIC®.

THERAFIRM® products feature soft, comfort bands on the knee-high stockings and trouser socks, soft waistbands on pantyhose and tights, and a soft, expandable top on maternity pantyhose. Additionally THERAFIRM® gradient compression hosiery garments are made using our Micro-Cool® process. Micro-Cool® creates a wicking effect so moisture evaporates from the skin quickly, therefore providing a comfortable coolness.


THERAFIRM® uses advanced technologies for developing products that are fashionable and comfortable while delivering the health benefits you need. We offer a wide range of advantages including updated shades, sheer yarns, variety of styles, and knit pattern texture options, so you will feel good about wearing compression hosiery.

Patient Compliance

Recommended compression therapy will only help patients when they will wear them. Therafirm stockings address both issues – they are fashionable to wear, because they are more sheer and stylish than traditional compression stockings, while providing the benefits of true gradient compression. Our patent pending Core-Spun by THERAFIRM® support socks offer the added benefit of ultra stretchy yarns, making them easier to put on and increasing patient compliance.


Patients must also be able to afford to obtain their compression stockings and support socks. Because they are often not a covered item by insurance, patients frequently pay out of pocket or have high co-pays. This can limit or prevent compliance with prescribed compression therapy. High quality, medically correct Therafirm products have a great cost point and can be offered at a lower price than other brands. Often the price can even encourage wearers to obtain several pair to allow a normal laundering interval, and to provide a “wardrobe” for various occasions.
