You’ve probably seen compression socks before, specially made that gently squeeze around legs at various lengths. But if you’ve never had to use them, there’s probably a lot you don’t know about them.
Fireactiv PRO compression socks apply gentle pressure over the ankles and calves to improve blood circulation from the legs and feet to the heart. They also provide exceptional comfort and prevent any swelling in legs, tired feet and varicose veins.
Fireactiv PRO are graduated compression socks tightest around the ankle, getting looser the higher up the leg they go to provide optimum support and comfort.
Both the heels and toes of the socks are reinforced for extra durability plus the materials used in the manufacturing include anti-bacterial properties for exceptional hygiene.
The compression is measured in mmHg, where mm stands for millimetre and Hg for mercury. It measures how the stockings react at a certain change in pressure. For more information please visit Wikipedia.
There are different standards for compression.
Fireactiv PRO fall into the COMPRESSION CLASS 1 standard. Compression 15-21mmHg
The function of the lower leg venous pump is noticeably better because the socks provides an external massage and a pressure that improves circulation
Compression socks are used to relieve manifestations of disease of the veins in the lower limbs. Compression socks may be used in the following conditions of the lower limbs:
Edema (swelling) of the lower limbs.
Venous insufficiency: Inability of the veins to pump blood back into the heart.
Varicose veins: Enlarged, swollen, and twisted veins. They appear blue or dark purple. Varicose veins occur when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to pool or flow in the wrong direction.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): This occurs when blood flow decreases in the lower limbs, for example, due to lack of movement for several hours after surgery, long flight travel, etc., blood pools in the legs and forms clots.
Lymphedema: Accumulation of lymph fluid in the legs.
Phlebitis: Inflammation of the veins.
Pregnancy: During pregnancy, there is compression of major veins and hormones, which causes swelling of the legs.
The increased pressure has a preventive effect against blood clots and varicose veins and results in a healthier and more comfortable everyday life.
The great thing about compression socks is that you don’t need a doctor’s approval to try them and for most people, there are no risks to giving them a go.

Foot pain and swelling on the golf course is usually due to lack of circulation. The feet and legs are the hardest place for the heart to circulate blood to and from. Gravity is pushing down on the body and when you’re on your feet for long periods of time or have circulation issues, blood can pool in the feet to cause pain and swelling. Compression socks essentially act as an additional layer of muscle to compress veins to allow blood to flow at a higher velocity.
