Additional Information as Provided by Manufacturer:
Manufactured from a special heavyweight fabric designed to address the specific needs of vigorous compression therapy, Mediven Forte stockings incorporate the popular open-toe feature.
The heavier fabric also offers a more opaque look, helping to conceal skin blemishes, discolored veins and scarring, or control lymphedema. Mediven Forte stockings feature extra durability to help resist pilling, friction or fraying, but are machine washable and dryable for quick and easy care.
Manufactured with a robust yarn designed to address the vigorous compression needs of early stage lymphedema.
Mediven Forte 40-50 mmHg stockings are indicated for:
- For severe degrees of above
- Emphasized edema from above causes
- Severe chronic venous insufficiency
- Chronic venous problems after surgery
- Venous ulcers
Simple and Easy To Care For: Even with everyday use, Mediven compression stockings are long-lasting and suitable for machine washing and tumble drying.
Reinforced Sole: With a reinforced sole, your compression garments have an extended life and are protected against extreme wear and tear.
Clinically-Proven Accurate and Precise Compression: Mediven stockings are manufactured with skin-friendly yarns and dyes. They are guaranteed to provide you with accurate compression for a minimum of six months. Mediven hosiery continues to set the standard in accurate pressure, fashion, and style. Here’s how it works: the compression graduates in intensity from the ankles up with the greatest pressure at the ankles where swelling occurs and where your veins are the weakest due to gravity and the lowest at the thigh. Medically accurate graduated compression therapy stockings push dilated vein walls back into place, enabling veins to close properly and function more efficiently. The result is increased blood flow which, in turn, significantly reduces leg swelling, pain, fatigue and the risk of blood clot formation. To achieve the most beneficial therapeutic effects, compression therapy must be worn regularly. That means every day, whenever you’re out of bed.Compression Levels:
Along with 40-50 mmHg, this product is also available in 30-40 mmHg.Directions for Use:
Mediven recommends putting your garment on dry skin and to begin wearing your compression hose as soon as you get out of bed in the morning when your swelling is minimal. To avoid any unnecessary snags or pulls in your stockings, you should remove all jewelry that may come in contact with the support hose when putting them on. You can also wear rubber gloves to avoid your fingernails accidentally snagging the fabric as well. A butler is also very beneficial in helping you to correctly and easily put on your hose. You should remove your garment before going to bed in the evening.

We recommend that donning gloves always been worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment. This is especially true with the sheer compression hosiery. Other people prefer to use a donning aid like the Juzo Slippie Gator or Mediven Butler. To preserve the life of your stockings, we suggest using Jobst Jolastic Wash.
