Abstract:

In this study, three experimental works are presented to determine the effects of different yarn structure and loop length on extensibility and bursting strength of compression stockings, the effects of knit structure and yarn count on extensibility and bursting strength of compression stockings and the effects of brand’s name and calf and ankle regions on performance properties. In the first chapter, a summary of the literature survey is given. In the second chapter, properties of compression stockings used the three experimental works, testing procedures and measurements of the performance properties of compression stockings are explained. In the third chapter, experimental results are presented. In the fourth chapter, with the aim of experimantel results, performance properties of compression stockings are discussed.
