Compression garments from medi for treating veins
Compression stockings are the most common treatment for venous disease. Compression garments apply pressure at the ankle, graduating up the leg, which in turn improves blood flow and reduces swelling. Your clinician will determine what compression class you need. Compression stockings come in below knee, thigh or tights.
Treatment of veins
Varicose vein surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures for women, who suffer from this condition more so than men.
However, quite a lot can be done in advance to prevent venous disease such as regular exercise, elevating the legs and keeping an eye on your weight. If you are already showing signs of venous disease (for example heavy, swollen legs or spider veins), your doctor can prescribe medical compression hosiery. These can counteract the progression of venous disease and are a help in day-to-day life.
medi has over 65 year's competence in the field of compression. It is very important that compression hosiery are not only breathable and antibacterial, but they are comfortable and fit you well.
medi has also developed compression tights for pregnant women with a soft and stretchy top part that has been designed especially to grow with the tummy.
Attractive compression therapy is also available for men. The men's socks are barely distinguishable from "normal"socks.
