Product Information

Compression therapy is one of the most important pillars in the treatment of venous ulcers. Compression therapy can be applied through compression bandages, gradient compression stockings, gradient compression wraps, and tubular dressings. These devices address the cause of venous ulcers, by helping blood to return to the heart from the legs. Compression stockings are sometimes used to treat venous ulcers, as an alternative to compression bandages. Compression stockings should be used continuously after the ulcer has healed, to prevent a new venous ulcer from happening.
