Modern treatment for veins and oedema

In contrast to support stockings, medical compression garments have a defined pressure gradient. All mediven garments are knitted to the highest quality RAL standard. RAL certification requires stringent testing by the Hohenstein Institute and is the gold standard for compression garments.

mediven garments can be purchased individually or prescribed by a clinician or by a doctor. medi also supply dressing (donning & doffing) aids to help solve the problem of putting on compression stockings or tights with either full foot or open toe and also armsleeves.

mediven stands for medical compression garments in modern treatment for vein disease and oedema

medi are experts in the field of venous health and the treatment of chronic oedema. mediven products are designed to provide comfortable treatment and thus guarantee the best possible treatment outcomes.

mediven stockings are produced to a high technical standard, and come with feel-good properties for a comfortable fit. The medi compression "seal of quality" stands for highly effective compression treatment, thus offering optimum comfort and the best possible treatment outcomes.

medi hosiery production

Round knit

Round knit mediven compression stockings are knitted on a round cylinder and are seamless. The number of stitches in each row is identical. The shape and size of the stocking are determined by the variable stitch size and the differing pre-tension on the compression yarn. The yarn is highly stretchable, which makes the stocking very elastic. The high resting pressure ensures that the stockings are also effective during long periods of standing or sitting. The controlled compression decreases from the ankle upwards and reduces the diameter of the veins. This enables the valves inside the veins to close again to keep the blood flow on the move; the swelling and feeling of tightness are reduced. Round knit mediven compression hosiery is available as standard sizes and as made to measure models (for example, mediven elegance).

Flat knit

Flat knit mediven compression hosiery is made to measure, knitted in rows and then closed off with a flat seam. The stocking is shaped by increasing and decreasing the number of stitches. The compression yarn is kept at the same tension and covered, so the stockings are less elastic and have very stable walls. Thus, the stocking lies above skin creases and does not cut into the skin. The stronger material ensures constant working pressure over a large area, particularly when the patient moves about. Flat knit garments are used to treat oedematous diseases. After treatment with complex physical decongestion therapy (CPD), flat knit compression stockings (for example, mediven 550) ensure that fluid does not accumulate in the tissues again.
