An online questionnaire among 1425 female Japanese consumers revealed that knee-high socks were the most desirable product for swelling body parts. We measured clothing pressure using a hydrostatic-pressure balanced method, while subjects wore support knee-high socks (SKSs) in a standing position. Before-after skin temperature of the dorsal lower legs and feet were measured using a thermo-tracer while subjects wore SKSs for 4 hours. The distribution of clothing pressure in a vertical position, with low clothing pressure on the inside part of the leg and high clothing pressure on the arch of the foot, promoted blood circulation.
