Elastic and inelastic stockings or bandages may provide the same degree of compression pressure in the resting supine position but inelastic material provides much greater compression pressure in the standing or working position. For elastic compression to have the same effect in the standing or exercising state would require a degree of compression in the resting position that would be intolerable. Studies have shown that this applies to reduction of reflux and improved venous pumping although both appear to have a similar effect for reducing edema.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
