Flat-knitted compression stockings provide the appropriate pressure curve against edema. In addition, they reduce existing pain in lipedema, which many customers perceive as a very great relief. Especially in connection with other therapeutic measures, such as lymphatic drainage, skin care or exercise, flat-knit stockings can be a good supplement and reduce or prevent the legs or feet from swelling again.
Compression stockings are usually custom-made - for men as well as for women. They fit your individual body shape. Because flat-knit stockings are particularly robust and stable, they are also preferred for people with weight problems.
Medical compression stockings help with various conditions such as varicose veins, connective tissue weakness, lipedema, lymphedema, venous insufficiency, thrombosis, cramps or pregnancy edema. They can also be used for burns or scar pain. Compression garments help in several ways:
- Reduce swelling
- Relieve legs and feet
- Stabilize ligaments and tendons
- Improve blood flow and lymphatic flow
- Help with regeneration
Although we are talking about stockings, flat-knitted compression care can also be used in other places, such as arms or hands. In addition, compression stockings come in different lengths, for example, as knee socks, calf socks or tights.
The material from which the compression goods are made is also important. Besides microfiber, polyamide or polyester, cotton or even merino wool can also be used. Merino wool, for example, can have a cooling function in summer and a warming function in winter. When selecting compression stockings, we at Ergonomic Care also always take into account any allergies, intolerances and preferences. Basically, every stocking should be skin-friendly and moisture-regulating and therefore comfortable to wear. In an initial free consultation, we will therefore present the various models to you in detail and discuss together which materials are suitable for you.
