At Orthotics Plus we use Venosan compression stockings. These are manufactured in Switzerland and a medical grade compression stocking.

These are prescribed for vascular conditions, travel, pregnancy and sport where compression is required. There are different classes/levels of compression that range from:

  • Class 1 (mild compression)
    • Moderate varicose veins/swelling
    • Post-op swelling
    • Varicose veins during pregnancy
  • Class 2 (moderate compression)
    • Standard medical grade compression
    • Deep vein thrombosis
    • Severe oedema/venous ulcer
    • Severe varicose veins
  • Class 3 (high compression)
    • Severe lymphedema
    • Pronounced oedema
    • Chronic venous insufficiency
    • Severe leg ulcers

Compression stockings can be open or closed toe, above knee or below knee, pantyhose or chaps. There are also a variety of colours which are available. Custom made stockings may also be appropriate for unusual shaped limbs. This can be determined by our clinicians at Orthotics Plus.
