mediven active® – The hard wearing compression sock

For the active man: mediven active® is a robust round-knitted medical compression sock that withstands high stresses, but is nevertheless soft. Thanks to the fine-ribbed design, it looks like a completely normal man's sock. It is used for treating veins. Due to the material thickness, the fit and the product characteristics, we recommend mediven active for amongst others for normal weight to overweight men with light to heavy tendency to venous oedema (leg swelling) as well as for those with soft connective tissue.*

*Please note that this recommendation does not replace a doctor's diagnosis or the professional advice of a specialist medical retailer.
