Test winner amongst anti-embolism stocking

The requirement for effective thrombosis and oedema prophylaxis is the declining pressure gradient from distal to proximal. In a comparative test (1) mediven thrombexin 18 achieved the best results in terms of biomechanical properties, such as the pressure curve. The authors emphasise that the test winner is the anti-embolism stocking from medi. Only this stocking could fulfill all test criteria.(2)

Intended purpose

Immobile patients have special requirements during the hospital stay. Due to the inactivity of the calf muscle pump the speed of venous blood return to the heart decreases. This increases the risk of thrombosis and postoperative and posttraumatic oedema formation. Standardised compression with a graduated pressure gradient affect veins and tissue. This promotes blood flow back to the heart. This can reduce postoperative and posttraumatic oedema and effictively prevent thrombosis.
