Effective compression therapy for the treatment of leg ulcer for up to 24 hours a day
Compression therapy is an important part of the treatment of venous leg ulcer. A guideline compliant therapy recommends the use of ulcer stocking systems after the initial decongestion phase of the venous oedema. The ulcer stocking system mediven ulcer kit provides continuous, effective compression around the clock and is easy to put on due to its two components. (1)
The white liner stocking mediven ulcer helps e.g. to keep wound dressings in place. With 20 mmHg compression pressure it can be worn for up to 24 hours and offers therapeutically effective therapy even at night.(2, 3) Its soft material with antibacterial effect ensures a pleasant wearing comfort and eases the donning of the outer stocking - it simply glides over the liner stocking. (4)
During the day, in the mobile phases, the outer stocking mediven ulcer plus is worn in addition to increase the compression. With also of 20 mmHg of compression pressure the mediven ulcer kit provides the therapeutically necessary pressure of 40 mmHg in total (5). The caramel-coloured and opaque outer stocking also offers a refined appearance.
