Treatment and preventive products of compression class 1 (18 mm Hg to 21 mm Hg) are intended for the treatment and prevention of venous insufficiency at the initial stage: numbness, creeps and strutting sensations, minor oedemas and pain in the feet and shin area towards the end of the day, prophylaxis of varicose veins during pregnancy and after delivery, work in a standing or sitting position for long periods and for persons with a predisposition to varicose veins or obesity.

The compression degree for treatment is selected individually by a doctor!

The size should be selected according to the leg measurements: the ankle circumference in the narrowest part, the shin circumference in the widest part, the shin circumference under the knee, the circumference of the upper third of the thigh, the thigh circumference below the buttock (see the measurement places on the packaging). The measurements are made either independently or with the participation of an assistant or a specialist. The measurements must be done with the legs in a horizontal position, in the morning (prior to the appearance of oedemas) or for the legs after rest. 

Wearing schedule. Unless prescribed otherwise by the doctor, we recommend you to put the product on in the morning and wear it for the whole day. An important factor of successful therapy is regular wear of the curative medical stockinet. Termination of the compression may contribute to the progression of the disease and the worsening of symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency. The silicone band must not come into contact with water, soap or cream. For cleaning and restoring the sticky properties of the silicone, we recommend to wipe the band with a sponge dampened in white spirit (30-40%). Under the conditions of daily wear, it is recommended to purchase two pairs for the convenience of usage. Please note! To adapt to wearing the compressive stockinet, it is permissible to reduce the wear duration initially, subsequently increasing daily until the required duration is achieved.

Methods of application: the compressive products can be used at inpatient and outpatient institutions and at home. The product form (medical long socks, stockings, mono-stockings or tights) is selected depending on the affected venous segment. The upper edge of the product must be 5-10 cm above the affected zone.  When the application of a compressive product is required on one leg, a mono-stocking can be used with a fastener at the waistline. A mono-stocking can also be applied as an alternative to men’s tights.  
The procedure of putting on the compressive products. Prior to putting on the compressive products, we recommend to take the jewellery off your hands. It is recommended to use rubber gloves. Most often the products are torn or worn in the area of the feet or toes. This can be a result of footwear defects, corns, calloused skin on the heels, long nails on the toes – pay attention to the condition of your footwear and feet. We do not recommend pulling and cutting technological threads on the inner side of the product, as well as threads and loops which appear due to careless wear. 

  1. Put on rubber gloves.
  2. Place your hand inside the product’s toe.
  3. Turn it out up to the heel, holding the top of the product with your other hand.
  4. Take the product with both hands in such a way that your thumbs are inside.
  5. Stretching the product both ways, put it on gradually, several centimetres at a time, as if rolling it on and pulling it up with the padded part of your fingers. Put the product on in a sitting position. 
  6. When putting the product on in a lying position, the legs must be half-bent in the physiologically horizontal position. 
  7. Special care must be observed when putting the product on at its narrowest part – the heel area. Check after putting the product on – so that the product's heel and your heel coincide!
  8. Smooth out the product on your legs.
