Jobst Anti-Embolism Stockings (with Germicidal Protection)

Anti-Embolism Stockings
by Jobst are used to support the venous and lymphatic drainage of the leg. Like gradient compression stockings, anti-embolism stockings deliver a distributed amount of compression at the ankle and up the leg. This compression aids in circulating blood and lymph fluid through the legs in non-ambulatory patients.

They are commonly used in post-surgical patients, and in those suffering from venous embolism and thrombosis of the legs and ankle.
