Modern treatment for veins and oedema
In contrast to support stockings, medical compression garments have a defined pressure gradient. These can be prescribed by a doctor if needed, and surgical appliance retailers measure patients for the correct size. Donning aids make it easier to handle the stockings which are used as disease-modifying treatment for vein disease and lip- and lymphoedema.
mediven stands for medical compression garments in modern treatment for vein disease and oedema
medi thinks venous health and the treatment of oedema through to the end. mediven products are designed to provide comfortable treatment and thus guarantee the best possible treatment outcomes. The right compression stocking for every clinical picture Each stocking is matched to the needs of patients right down to the smallest detail.
mediven stockings are produced to the high-tech standard, and come with feel-good properties for the best comfort in wear. This is the most pleasant way of achieving medical efficacy. mediven's broad range of add-ons makes treatment even easier.
medi hosiery production
Round knit mediven compression stockings are knitted on a round cylinder and are seamless. The number of stitches in each row is identical. The shape and size of the stocking are determined by the variable stitch size and the differing pre-tension on the compression yarn. The yarn is highly stretchable, which makes the stocking very elastic. The high resting pressure ensures that the stockings are also effective during long periods of standing or sitting. The controlled compression decreases from the ankle upwards and reduces the diameter of the veins. This enables the valves inside the veins to close again to keep the blood flow on the move; the swelling and feeling of tightness are reduced. Round knit mediven compression hosiery is available as standard sizes and as made to measure models (for example, mediven elegance).
Flat knit mediven compression hosiery is made to measure, knitted in rows and then closed off with a flat seam. The stocking is shaped by increasing and decreasing the number of stitches. The compression yarn is kept at the same tension and covered, so the stockings are less elastic and have very stable walls. Thus, the stocking lies above skin creases and does not cut into the skin. The stronger material ensures constant working pressure over a large area, particularly when the patient moves about. Flat knit garments are used to treat oedematous diseases. After treatment with complex physical decongestion therapy (CPD), flat knit compression stockings (for example, mediven 550) ensure that fluid does not accumulate in the tissues again.
