Compression stockings: Basic therapy for various conditions

Compression stockings and compression tights in four different pressure classes (compression classes)
The severity of the venous condition, lymphoedema or lipoedema determines the pressure needed. Patients prescribe the correct pressure and type of garment required.
Various models and materials are used depending on the condition's nature and how advanced it is. Models are also available for patients with healthy veins.

Doctors prescribe flat-knit stockings for lipoedema and lymphoedema therapy. They are professionally measured and fitted on an individual patient-by-patient basis. 
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, and the severity of the situation, are therefore crucial for therapy.
