Mediven stockings include unique features such as ClimaComfort and ClimaFresh. ClimaComfort technology uses a proprietary yarn that is breathable, keeping you cool – and rapidly wicks moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry. Another unique feature of Mediven stockings is ClimaFresh, that prevents bacteria growth, keeping your garments odor-free.
Remember that the pressure in the blood vessels increases at all points below the heart and decreases at all points above the heart. For that reason your feet must be well above the level of the heart to drain the legs of excess fluids.
Mediven measured ready-made graduated compression stockings are available and provide the greatest pressure at the level of ankle and diminishing pressure as the stocking goes up over the thigh. It is important to note that stockings that are commonly called "support hose" provide a minimal amount of compression and are not adequate to prevent tissue swelling and the complication of varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
Medically accurate compression stockings push the dilated vein walls back into place and help them "pump" the blood throughout your body more efficiently.
Medi — along with
— have gone to MAP (minimum advertised prices) for their products. This controls what we can charge for their socks and stockings.
*Some of these manufacturers do allow occasional specials or temporarily suspend their MAP. Sign up for our newsletter or create an account to be automatically notified when there is a sale or price drop of your favorite garments!
**For the socks & stockings not under the MAP policies, you will find compressionstockings.com to be among the lowest priced on the internet, and the lowest priced of the major compressionwear vendors.
