Compression stockings are garments worn throughout the day just like any piece of clothing and allows the patient not be tethered to a compression machine, while still benefiting from compression therapy. Compression stockings range from knee to waist high in length and deliver specific compression amounts to stimulate circulation throughout the legs. Compression stockings are used in cases of edema, general leg swelling and pooling of blood, and as an effective means of preventing stasis ulcers. The compression garments on Vitality Medical are also available in arm sleeves as well. Vitality Medical offers top name brand stockings that are both high in quality and affordably priced.Compression Stockings Patient Applications
- Use Anti-Embolism Socks for: preventing deep vein thrombosis, promoting increased blood flow in the legs and lower extremities and wearing after surgery or prolonged bed rest when chances of developing DVT is at its highest.
- Use Arm Sleeves, Gloves and Gauntlets for: reducing swelling in the arms, reducing the effects of lymphedema and protecting sensitive skin.
- Use Compression Sock Accessories to: help don compression socks with a donning tool, keeping the compression sock from slipping with body adhesive and washing the compression garments with specialty soap.

Most compression stocking companies offer anywhere from 3-5 off the shelf sizes in circumference measurements. However, Medi's ready-to-wear sizing chart offers, in most cases, up to 7 off the shelf sizes.
Click here to see Mediven's sizing charts.
What does this mean? It means that most patients don't have to go custom, but can still get a "custom-like" fit! To learn more about "custom-like fit", click here!
North Carolina State University's College of Textiles randomly tests Medi's compression garments to ensure the compression levels are tested and accurate. No other stocking company has this tested, proven information on their products from a 3rd party. With Medi, you know you are getting accurate compression. Click here to learn more about Mediven's compression accuracy standards!
The more custom like fit, the more accurate the compression will be, and as a result ... better therapy! Graduated compression is based off of circumference measurements, not shoe size, nor height, nor weight. Any compression based off of these other mentioned measurements are not considered proper therapy for correcting damaged veins.
Almost all stockings companies will tell you "if you purchase the stockings, and especially if you open and/or wear them, you cannot exchange them!" Whether it is size, compression level, style, damage or application issue (such as tearing, ripping, snagging, etc.) they will not replace them. However, Medi is so convinced that you will love their products, they offer a 30 day guarantee on all of their products! This means if you are not completely satisfied with any Medi product, you can get it exchanged for a different Medi product within the first 30 days of your purchase.
Quality standards that are unmatched, including:
- FDA registered
- ISO certification 13485:2003 standard
ISO certification 13485:2003 standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer requirements and regulatory applicable to medical devices and related services.

In order to help control odor, bacteria, fungus and overall comfort compression stockings need more than the basics.
The skin on the human body is the largest organ and protects us against environmental factors, as well as regulates temperature and water balance. The moisture on the skin caused by perspiration must evaporate quickly, particularly in the summer time when it is hot; rapid evaporation is key to the skin staying fresh. During the winter time, we need textile fabrics that absorb the moisture and transport it away from the skin surface to ensure the skin doesn't freeze and stays dry and comfortable.
Clima Comfort ensures a reliable climate exchange between the skin and the garment all year round. It accomplishes this through a specific knitting technology that absorbs moisture immediately and then transports it quickly to the outer surface of the garment.
In a study conducted to demonstrate this technology, Medi's stockings were compared to other competitors to measure water evaporation through the fabric while simulating the sweat secreted by the skin during physical exercise. The results showed that due to Clima Comfort, Medi has the best climate exchange between the skin and compression garments. Comfy foot technology in some products that allow easier donning and doffing actions.
Q: Why do people wear compression?
A: There are various reasons why someone might wear compression but a there is a common reason. Over 30 million Americans suffer from what is called, chronic venous insufficiency (also known as "CVI"). Other reasons might include conditions like lymphedema.
Q: What is "CVI" and what are its symptoms?
A: CVI is defined at the inability to pump blood in the veins back to the heart. Vein walls can become stretched, allowing blood to pool in the surrounding leg tissue. There are various reasons why someone might have CVI, but below is a quick list of some of the symptoms:
- - Tired, heavy-feeling legs
- Leg pain from prolonged sitting or standing
- Swollen ankles at night
- Varicose or spider veins
- Tingling, numbness, burning, or cramping in legs and feet
- Discoloration in the skin
- Open sores or ulcers in the lower leg
- History of vein problems in the family
If you or someone you know has one or more of these symptoms, there is a good chance CVI is the reason.
Q: What is graduated compression and how is it different than TED Hose (or anti-embolism stockings)?
A: White Anti-Embolism stockings (often called TED's) are designed for patients who are lying down the majority of the time. They provide a slight amount of compression that is consistent in pressure along the leg, but are not considered "graduated" compression. Graduated compression is tighter at the ankle (where blood typically pools to when veins are stretched), and then gets less and less tight as it goes up the leg towards the heart. This helps support the weakened vein walls and help perform the "pumping" action in the calf muscle to help push blood back towards the heart.
Q: What are Mediven graduated compression stockings, and what makes them different than other compression stockings?
A: Mediven graduated compression stockings are made by a company called medi. medi has been manufacturing graduated compression since 1960. They are a worldwide leader in compression innovation and technology. Some of the unique components to mediven graduated compression stockings include:
