Which compression stockings are right for me?
The severity of the venous disorder determines how much compression is required. Specialist medical retailers provide patients with compression stockings in four different compression classes. Compression stockings come in different lengths depending on where and to what degree the veins are damaged.
They range from knee-high and thigh-length stockings to pantyhose. There are special models for men and pregnant women. Wearing compression stockings is much more comfortable than you might think. With properly fitted stockings your legs immediately feel lighter and benefit from the compression.
Caution: Support stockings and support hose are not the same as medical compression hosiery. Support stockings should only be worn by people without venous problems, whereas orthopaedic stockings are prescribed by a doctor and fitted at a health supplier.

Elegant compression stockings are a pleasure to wear
Thankfully, the days when compression stockings were referred to as ugly, uncomfortable elastic stockings are long gone: Today's mediven compression stockings come in a wide variety of trend colours and even ultra transparent versions that look like nylons.
medi also offers donning aids such as the "medi Butler", an everyday aid that stretches the stocking so it is easier to put on.
