“Feel the difference. Make a difference”: mediven cotton is a round knit medical compression stocking with 27 percent organic cotton. The product caters for a variety of conditions (indications) for men and women:

  • chronic venous disease stages I to III according to Widmer or C0s – C4 according to CEAP
  • initial phase following varicose therapy
  • congestion problems and oedema during pregnancy
  • postoperative reperfusion oedema
  • post-traumatic, postoperative, occupational, medicinally induced oedema
  • oedema due to immobility
  • superficial venous thrombosis
  • deep leg vein thrombosis
  • condition after thrombosis, post-thrombotic syndrome
  • thrombosis prophylaxis in mobile patients
  • Inflammatory dermatoses of the legs
  • nausea and dizziness in pregnancy

Due to the material, the fit and product characteristics we recommend mediven cotton for regular to overweight persons with light to heavy tendency to venous oedema. mediven cotton is also suitable for patients with soft connective tissue and sensitive or allergic skin.

Feel the difference: Optimum combination of natural and functional fibres.

The organic fibre is noticeably soft against the skin. This provides a particularly high level of comfort. The functional fibres ensure a thermoregulating effect: cooling at higher temperatures and isolating warm in cold weather.

The natural organic cotton is particularly soft - and is therefore suitable for sensitive and allergic skin. This has been dermatologically tested 1 for mediven cotton and given top marks.

Make a difference: Organic cotton and recycled materials – responsibility for people and the environment

For the compression stocking mediven cotton, we rely on GOTS-certified organic cotton 2 and GRS-certified recycled polyamide yarn 3. These are internationally leading standards with high ecological and social requirements - for consideration of resources and the environment. The materials used have each also been OEKO-TEX certified 4. The focus is on transparency, trust and an important step towards more sustainability.
