FITLEGS™  AES GRIP  (anti-embolism stockings) help to prevent the formation of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in the legs by applying clinically proven graduated compression.* FITLEGS™  AES are designed to be simple to fit and apply, which reduces sizing errors and nursing time. G+N has developed an effective grip sole and applied it to our leading brand FITLEGS™ to create a complementary range of anti-embolism stockings, which assists hospitals in reducing the number of patients experiencing trips and falls.

 

Slips, trips and falls cost the NHS an estimated £2.3 billion a year** – a single fractured hip can cost the NHS as much as £4,603 and even “no harm” incidents are estimated to cost £41 per fall.***

The compression within the garment is highest at the ankle and reduces further up the leg. Pressure forces blood back towards the heart.
