How to choose the right compression stocking?
Compression stockings come in a variety of styles, colors, patterns and materials. Based on your disease state and lifestyle activities, your clinician will help determine a product that best fits your needs. Some conditions will require patients to wear a full-length thigh or pantyhose product while others will require a calf-length stocking. And depending on your edema level, appropriate material will be selected to prevent further swelling. In most cases, patients will have choices of color, pattern and foot preference (open or closed-toe).
