-- Amanda and Dave Dixon's SocksLane company has worked tirelessly to produce quality compression socks, expanding to add compression knee and elbow sleeves, to customers whose comfort is the company's focus. The products have earned praise from various quarters, but some of the most fulfilling and genuinely satisfying praise any company can get is when real people who use the product to deal with real needs recommend them to their friends and colleagues.
Run by nurse Brittany Wilson, BSN, RN, Nerdynurse.com has put together various articles on nursing and the care that nurses themselves need. One of the more popular topics on the blog is the need for compression socks, because nurses -- due to the nature of their work -- are particularly susceptible to conditions and circumstances that might lead to physical problems that compression attire can help remedy.
Compression helps maintain effective circulation in the body, because long periods of standing or sitting can result in blood pooling in the veins, typically in the lower extremities more affected by gravity. This deep vein thrombosis can lead to swelling, varicose veins, and soreness. The poor circulation in such a case can be helped by wearing compression socks, whose tight fit increases the effectiveness of blood flow, encouraging proper oxygenation and circulation.
Among the sock brands recommended by Nerdynurse.com in the article "5 reasons why every nurse should wear compression socks" is SocksLane, described as "designed for the nurse who prefers natural fibers to itchy synthetic materials, they are made of an exclusive cotton blend that is hypoallergenic, breathable and durable." This refers to SocksLane's signature 65%/35% blend of combed cotton and hypoallergenic fibers (such as Spandex, Lycra, and elastex) that creates a snug, secure fit without the risk of allergy and itching.
There are now over 1,000 positive review on Amazon.com for SocksLane compression socks and compression knee and elbow sleeves, all appreciative of the products' smooth, snug fit and avoidance of allergy-causing synthetic construction.
