WOOSTER, Ohio (October 1, 2019)—A study was completed with Purdue Polytechnic on expensive medical grade anti-embolism stockings. The lab performed a blind test using an Instron Stress Strain machine to samples of stockings. They tested every sample until it failed in the form of a tear. The study found the elastic to be nearly 50% stronger after cryogenic treatment to -300 degrees Fahrenheit. This treatment will help prevent snagging and running of the elastic stockings.

Anti-embolism stockings improve circulation and valve function and relieve mild swelling in legs, ankles and feet. The stockings protect against deep vein thrombosis and prevent blood clots. To ease the financial burden for patients and their families, CryoPlus, Inc in Wooster, Ohio is offering to freeze these stockings for every cancer patient in the state of Ohio for free. Circle City Cryogenics is offering to do the same for every cancer patient in the state of Indiana for free.
