Your advantages with ergonomic Care

I got my first pair of flat-knit compression tights at Ergonomic Care. From the appointment, to the measurement, to the fitting, I was in very good hands. The staff is very friendly and the tights fit great. I was also given extensive advice about other compression stocking options. I recommend Ergonomic Care for flat knit compression 100%.

Frequently asked questions

Medical compression stockings are available as calf stockings (AD), half-thigh stockings (AF), thigh stockings (AG) and also as tights for both sexes (AT).

Furthermore there are maternity tights for expectant mothers(AT/U)

Here it is important to mention that the tights do not have compression at the waist part. Thus, expectant mothers can be cared for throughout pregnancy without any problems, because the maternity pants grow with the baby bump

At the medical supply store of your choice, a specialist consultant will take measurements for your "stockings". Flat-knitted compression garments are usually made to measure, since each edema is localized differently and the anatomical conditions of the "lymphatic extremities" are difficult.

At ergonomic care, you do not need an appointment. You can come by at any time to be measured. Our consultants will be happy to advise you. However, it is advantageous if you come in the morning to be measured, because then the legs are not yet so swollen.
If you have any questions, you can always contact us by phone.

Normally, a prescription is valid for up to 28 days with most health insurance companies. If you are not sure, please contact us.

Anyone suffering from a disease of the veins or lymphatic system wears medical compression stockings for treatment. These diseases include, for example, varicose veins, thrombosis,
lymphedema and phlebitis
For optimal therapy success, you should wear and wash your medical compression stockings daily. Patients with venous complaints and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) wear their medical compression stockings from morning to night, throughout their lives. This also applies to lymphedema and lipedema patients.

Compression therapy should also be initiated in the case of acute complaints, for example in the case of phlebitis, or after vein surgery (varicose vein removal, varicose vein sclerotherapy). The duration of the therapy is determined individually by your attending physician.

The doctor can prescribe medical compression stockings (2 times a year) if indicated. You bear a (small) part of the costs yourself.
Compression stockings are subject to the statutory co-payment obligation. If there is no exemption, the co-payment must be made directly at the medical supply store or pharmacy. It amounts to 10 percent of the costs - at least €5 and a maximum of €10 per aid. Up to €30 extra can be charged for a premium supply.

If you decide on a desired model (e.g. from a particular manufacturer or with a particular color) after the consultation, the medical supply store/pharmacy will inform you of the amount of the additional surcharge.

The additional costs may vary depending on the medical supply store. If you would like a specific compression fitting, we recommend that you obtain information about the additional costs from various medical supply stores/pharmacies.

According to the manufacturer, compression stockings last about half a year with regular use. Then you should get new ones prescribed - if necessary.

According to the manufacturer, with proper handling and care, the compression effect decreases after about half a year of daily use.

There are four compression classes. Experts also speak of CCL 1 to 4: the higher the class, the stronger the compression: this is the pressure exerted by the medical compression stocking. The doctor specifies the compression class on the prescription for medical compression stockings.

Statutory health insurance funds cover two pairs of compression stockings or compression tights per year in any case. They cover a large part of the costs. With daily wearing and washing, the compression pressure slowly decreases. Therefore, it is possible to receive a new pair of compression stockings - the so-called "re-supply" - every six months. Your doctor can prescribe these for you if they are medically necessary.

For the treatment of venous disorders, compression stockings are manufactured using the circular knitting method and are therefore similar to conventional stockings. Lymphatic patients with edema, on the other hand, are treated with flat-knit compression stockings. But where exactly is the difference?

While circular knitted stockings are produced seamless and spirally, flat knitted compression stockings have a seam and can thus exert a high, flat pressure on the leg by means of robust materials. In contrast to circular knitted stockings, flat knitted stockings are suitable for the treatment of larger circumferences and difficult anatomical conditions, as they have less elasticity and hold the edema together like a wall.
