Post-Operative Compression 

Any major operation carries the risk of DVT and surgeons say you're at greater risk up to six weeks following major surgery, especially on the abdomen, pelvis or lower limb. If your surgery is followed by a long period of immobility, compression may be required until you return to full activity.

A medical-grade compression sock with gctech will help reduce that risk, plus help with any swelling in the lower limb. Compression socks are a vital part of the recovery process after any major surgery.

Why VR Compression Socks after Surgery?

One of the problems with hospital compression socks is that while they are effective, they are often uncomfortable to wear. The VR compression sock range have been designed specifically to eliminate this problem by textile engineers and surgeons, yet importantly conform to European standard of Class 1 compression.

These factors make this range far more comfortable than usual hospital stockings. Thus they can be worn for extended periods post operatively, reducing the risk of DVT and helping with lower limb swelling.

When to Wear VR Compression?

Your surgeon or nurse should advise you on how to wear this product. It is usually necessary to wear compression socks directly after your surgery and for 6 weeks after your discharge. They can be worn for 24 hours a day as a replacement for normal socks, ideally a few pairs of socks should be used in rotation to allow regular washing of the product.
