The support stockings we offer at Vein Doctors Group can be used to:
These stockings are designed to give the greatest support at the ankle, and gradually decrease in pressure all the way up to the thigh. This gives better support than traditional bandages, and recent innovations in design and materials means that these stockings are comfortable enough to wear every day.
Our range of graduated compression stockings are supplied from Venosan, a leading provider of contemporary compression stockings. The types of stockings we provide include:
Class 1 Compression Stockings – these are a great choice for tired, heavy aching legs, varicosities without significant oedema and for varicose veins during pregnancy.
Class 2 Compression Stockings – these are utilised to relieve more severe discomfort, support pronounced varicose veins with oedema, help heal ulcers, treat superficial thrombophlebitis, increase the effectiveness of sclerotherapy treatment and to support severe varicose veins during pregnancy.
At Vein Doctors Group we stock a wide range of colours and sizes to ensure that you receive the perfect fit. These stockings can be machine washed (a laundry bag is recommended) in lukewarm water, but do not tumble dry, bleach, dry clean or iron your stockings. Private Health Fund Extras members may receive a rebate on these stockings.
