Flat knit stockings - large selection at Ergonomic Care

Medical compression stockings are used when people have venous disease, lipedema or lymphedema. The use of compression goods can also be useful for other conditions, scars or burns. In flat-knit compression stockings, a special process is used to knit the stockings in rows with a machine. The increase in stitches then provides the shape and the desired pressure gradient.

Unlike circular knit stockings, the flat knit stockings have a seam. They are very robust, less elastic and can exert a high, rather flat pressure on the legs. Therefore, they are very suitable for people with a high leg circumference or anatomical deviations.


Compression care from the Munich specialist

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.

Cost of compression stockings

As a rule, compression stockings are prescribed by a doctor, so health or long-term care insurance companies cover the cost of two pairs per year. In individual cases - for example, if special materials are required - patients may have to make an additional payment. Our staff will inform you of this in advance. If you wish, we will then prepare an individual, favorable offer for you.

Buying compression stockings for the first time at Ergonomic Care

Before you buy suitable flat knitted stockings, you will first receive a free consultation from our experienced staff. Here you will learn everything about material, compression classes, and functions. It is equally important that you are measured by a specialist. Since compression goods are made-to-measure and so that the stockings achieve the desired therapeutic effect, it is important to measure leg length and circumference precisely. Compression stockings must fit tightly, but should not constrict under any circumstances. This is checked during the first fitting.

In addition, when you buy compression stockings at Ergonomic Care, you will of course always receive helpful tips on how to care for your flat knit stockings and skin care tips. And of course, thanks to our many years of experience, we also know how to put on the stockings most easily and pass this knowledge on to our customers in donning training. Donning aids are also part of our offer. Simply come to us at Sendlinger Tor with your prescription, and together we will find the optimal compression fitting. We will put an end to your pain.

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%.
