Various pressure pads and inserts for compression stockings for targeted pressure distribution and pressure increase
Integrated pads or lymph pads and sewn-in linings can optimise the effectiveness and user comfort. Pad areas of application:
- Balances out concave (curved inwards) areas,
- Optimum pressure distribution
- Loosens fibrosis
- Targeted increase of pressure in the oedema area
As a leading manufacturer, medi offers a wide variety of flat knit garments. These have been developed over many years – perfectly designed for the needs of oedema patients. You can see selected examples of variants and possible applications here. Your medical supply store will be happy to advise on further options.
Individually cut or prefabricated pads
Lymph pads as well as prefabricated pads can be incorporated into all flat knit mediven compression stockings. If the medical supply store has suitable materials, these can also be incorporated into the compression stockings.
Examples of medi prefabricated pads:
medi lymph pads ribbed and napped for selective compression reinforcement
These lymph pads can be individually cut to size. The following versions are available:
- Ribbed lymph pad: Lymphoedema in the leg (Standard) and arm
- Finely napped lymph pad: Lymphoedema in the arm (Standard) and leg
- Coarsely napped lymph pad: Lipoedema (for thigh)
The napped pads made of synthetic latex (free of CFCs, PCP, nitrosamines, azo dyes and fillers) are very thin so they don't show through the compression stocking.
Pads: individually placed or firmly integrated
Prefabricated pads can be incorporated and positioned in a fixed position. However, specialist retailers can also define, make and place individual pads.
Individual and standardised pads can also be inserted into an incorporated pocket. This way they stay exactly in the specified place. If necessary, they can be removed.
Linings for more user comfort
For sensitive skin or joint areas a soft, smooth fabric can be sewn in individually.
The adjustment and composition of the medical compression stockings is based on the patient's individual needs. Consult your specialist medical retailer with confidence. They will be happy to advise.
