Depending on the pathology, medical compression therapy can be applied in different forms (socks, stockings, tights, arm wraps or bandages) and compression grades (15-20mmHg, 20-30mmHg 30-40mmHg, 40-50mmHg).
Compression therapy aids venous blood return through external graduated compression technology, where the strongest compression is at the distal part of the limb (ankle) and decreases proximally. In addition, it prevents venous stasis, decreases venous pressure, reduces edema and the deterioration of the venous walls and lastly, they can efficiently relieve tired, aching and heavy legs.
SIGVARIS stockings may be recommended by a doctor for individuals with:
- Post surgery
- Post sclerotherapy or following any other varicose vein treatment.
- Prevent venous issues during pregnancy and long distance travel
- Individuals with symptoms related to chronic venous disease
- Heavy legs
- Varicose veins
- Leg ulcers
