Support stockings and compression

The compression is measured in mmHg, where mm stands for millimetre and Hg for mercury. It measures how the stockings react at a certain change in pressure. For more information please visit Wikipedia.

 

There are different standards for compression. Below you can find the defined standard in Europe described.

 

COMPRESSION CLASS 1

 

For use with smaller problems like swollen feet, tiredness, and small varicose veins.

 

Compression 15-21mmHg.

 

COMPRESSION CLASS 2

 

For use with bigger problems as for instance venous insufficiency and varicose veins. Also for use after operations.  

Do not use compression class 2 without consulting a doctor or nurse.

 

Compression: 22-32mmHg

 

COMPRESSION CLASS 3

 

With major problems you might need compression class 3. In this case the stockings are made to order. Medically qualified personal has to measure the person, so the stockings are a complete fit.

 

Compression 33-46mmHg.

 

COMPRESSION CLASS 4

 

Only for use within hospitals.
