Abstract: Graduated compression stockings (GCS) have been demonstrated to be an effective non-operative option to relieve symptoms associated with venous disorders in the human lower limb. The purpose of this study was to develop a three-dimensional biomechanical mathematical model to simulate and predict accurately the mechanical interaction between human lower limb and compression stockings in conjunction with the wear trials and materials objective experiments. The established mathematical model can predict and visualize the skin pressure magnitude and distribution applied by different compression stockings without practical wearing, which provide us with more effective engineering design and scientific evaluation approach. This model also can contribute to improve the medical functions of GCS for preventing and treating venous disorders.
