Anti-embolism socks are a type of compression socks typically worn by patients who suffer from circulatory disorders and are restricted to bed rest. They work as compression socks, and they have tight fabric sleeves that stimulate blood flow and prevent clot formation.

They are designed to maintain a patient's average blood flow response rather than treating existing circulatory issues. If recovery takes longer than expected, the patient will stay in bed for extended periods and is therefore at risk of developing blood clots or DVT in his legs and feet due to the lack of movement and activity. Doctors may advise wearing these socks as a preventive step for those at higher risk of blood clotting.
