You need these elastic stockings to avoid DVT, but I will see if we have other colors to match your hospital gown
Elastic stockings pump blood into veins and remove pooled blood, thus preventing venous stasis
Elastic stockings help reduce blood stasis and venous wall injury by promoting venous return and limiting venous dilation, which decreases the risk of endothelial tears.
They are there to help you were your shoes better. There are no other designs or colors
