Description

mediven® 550 leg convinces users with its very high wall stability and high working pressure generated by the firm and strong knitted fabric. mediven® 550 leg is used in the treatment of disorders of the lymphatic system and for lipoedema. The stockings compress the legs. They are equally suitable for patients with very soft connective tissues as they are for those with hardened connective tissues.

mediven® 550 compression garments are suitable for large differences between circumferences and overhanging tissue, including at the ankle. The pressure exerted by the compression stocking promotes lymphatic outflow. The product also brings relief to patients with accompanying pronounced obesity and severe lymphoedema (for example, phlebo-lymphoedema and lipo-lymphoedema).

mediven® 550 leg not only scores points at the medical level, but also in terms of fashion: The wide variety of colours and patterns as well as special accessories offer numerous possible combinations. Unique patterns and Design- and Fashion-Elements as well as sparkling crystals at the ankle are possible. mediven® 550 compression garments are stylish companions that convince users with their high comfort in wear, both during leisure time and at work. The Clima Fresh and Clima Comfort* technologies also ensure breathability and rapid moisture wicking.
