In bedridden patients (hospitalized or patients with limited walking) the use of anti-embolic stockings is very important in the prevention of venous thrombosis that increases in these cases due to stasis, in addition to other concurrent factors specific to each patient.
In bedridden patients, low compression stockings are usually recommended since they require less pressure since their legs do not fight against the pressure of gravity on the blood column.
On the other hand, patients who wander and have other risk factors, such as thrombophilia, may require more compression stockings (such as 20 to 30 mmHg) to prevent a thromboembolic event, the precise pressure must be estimated by the doctor being that there are no set prescriptions for all patients.
Here are some models of LOW COMPRESSION stockings:

We always recommend attending the consultation of a specialist in vascular diseases.
