Therapy with medical compression stockings for lipoedema and lymphoedema
Since therapy for lipoedema and lymphoedema is very individual, the flat knit medical mediven compression stockings are made to measure. They aim to prevent “congestion in the tissue” from building up again after lymphatic drainage has been performed, for example. The medi flat knit products are characterised by a high level of user comfort and durability and are available in many colours and designs.
Flat knit medical compression stockings are available on prescription. They are prescribed by doctors for therapy for lipoedema and lymphoedema and are professionally fitted on an individual basis by this medical specialist retailer.
Individual therapy for patients using flat knit medical compression stockings
Lymphoedema is caused by a restriction in the lymphatic system, which means that the lymphatic fluid can no longer be removed sufficiently. The volume of this fluid increases in the affected part of the body due to liquid build-up in the tissue. Lipoedema is an abnormal fat distribution issue in the lower and upper extremities.
Patient-specific criteria such as the condition of the connective tissue, weight and deeper skin folds, as well as the severity of the condition, are therefore key for therapy. For individual therapy, medi uses only high-quality, breathable materials that are made to measure to fit the patient’s body shape. Many extras such as functional and relief zones allow further adjustments to be made for anatomy and lifestyle.
