Özet

Compression stockings, which constitute one of the most important groups of compression garments, are engineered to regulate blood flow in venous systems in order to use in many medical fields such as supporting muscles and preventing edema. In the present study, it was aimed to analyze the effects of production parameters such as tightness, elastane yarn feeding tension and elastane yarn counts on pressure behavior of compression stockings, which are commonly used to adjust pressure values. The results of the statistical analysis indicated that the tested parameters had significant effects on pressure characteristics of compression stockings. Moreover, multiple regression analysis was used to investigate the relationship between the fabric parameters and pressure values. The analysis exhibited the strong impact of thickness and traversal elasticity on pressure characteristics. All parameters have positive impacts except traversal elasticity.
