How do compression stockings work to treat vein disease? 

The mediven product lines are always at the cutting edge of development - mediven is the ideal solution for moderate to severe vein disease due to its graduated compression profile that delivers static, or consistent, compression on the leg or limb.  A few of the mediven products are made with stiffness properties for edema containment in the treatments of lipedema and lymphedema that need products with greater wall stability.

In contrast to support stockings, medical compression garments have a defined pressure gradient. These can be prescribed by a doctor if needed, and durable medical equipment retailers measure patients for the correct size.

mediven products are designed to provide patient comfort and thus guarantee the best treatment outcomes. Each stocking is matched to the needs of patients right down to the smallest detail. mediven products can fit every lifestyle with our expansive product options, various styles, and an array of color choices.

How are compression socks or stockings made?

They 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, resulting in less swelling and tightness.

What are flat-knit compression stockings?

It 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 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 edematous 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.
