mediven forte below knee compression stockings

  • Maximum pressure stability

Description

All you feel is protection. Pleasant compression has never been so powerful: mediven® forte is a round-knitted medical compression stocking that, thanks to its strong material, ensures pressure stability and a deep functional effect all day long. This stocking holds severe indications at bay, so that also patients with symptoms can lead an active life. The strong material enables the deep functional effect.

Due to the material thickness, the fit and the product characteristics, we recommend mediven® forte for amongst others for overweight to obese men and women with light to heavy tendency to venous oedema (leg swelling) as well as for those with soft connective tissue.*

The opaque look of mediven® forte conceals varicose veins. The stable soft cuff at the AD finish provides a gentle hold for a secure fit and pleasant wearing comfort. The standard product with closed toe is available in two foot lengths: small foot up to 23 cm, large foot from 23 cm.

Product benefits:

  • High working pressure for extra deep action
  • Quality testing to the Öko-Tex Standard 100 ensures dermatologically** confirmed skin tolerability
  • Clima Fresh throughout the leg
  • Highly elastic and non-slip for constant pressure all day long
  • Dimensionally stable soft cuff at AD
  • Double-layer fabric at the foot border
  • Two foot lengths for the series with closed toes: small foot up to 23 cm; large foot over 23 cm
