Compression stockings are elastic compression garments worn around the leg, compressing the limb. They are a specialized kind of stocking designed to help treat or prevent the occurrence of and guard against further progression of various venous or lymphatic disorders, such as edema, phlebitis, and thrombosis.
Due to the fact that the limb is being compressed by the stocking, the diameter of swollen veins is reduced. Also, it increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. At J.P. Visser, we have various maternity panties, thigh-high stockings, and pantyhoses.
Our stockings are measured according to German standards. All our stockings are RAL certified. With the delivery of the stockings, clear instructions are given to ensure proper use of the compression stocking.
