What’s the difference between moderate compression and firm compression?
Don’t worry; it’s less complicated than it might seem. In basic terms, compression is normally measured in mmHG, which is a unit of measurement and stands for ‘millimetres of mercury’. For sock purposes, moderate compression is normally between 15 and 20 mmHG and firm comes in at 20-30 mmHG. Those doctors and nurses amongst us will know that this number refers to blood pressure; it’s the height that pressure in our blood vessels can push a column of mercury to.
Generally speaking, moderate compression is ideal for long-distance travelling, the treatment of varicose veins and the relief of swollen, tired or aching legs. Firm compression is more commonly used for post-surgical and medicinal purposes. If you’ve been prescribed compression socks, then your GP will advise you as to the right compression level and, if in doubt, we always recommend seeking professional advice.
