mediven forte below knee compression stockings

  • Maximum pressure stability
  • Deep functional effect
  • Opaque look


All you feel is protection. Round knit compression has never been so powerful: mediven® forte is a round-knit medical compression stocking that, thanks to its strong material, ensures pressure stability and a deep functional effect all day long. This stocking keeps severe conditions (indications) at bay, so that everyone can lead an active life. The strong material enables the deep functional effect.

Due to the material thickness, the product characteristics and fit, mediven® forte is particularly recommended for heavier BMI weight men and women with light to high tendency to venous oedema (leg swelling) as well as for those with soft connective tissue.*

*Please note that this recommendation does not replace a doctor's or clinician's diagnosis.
