Skin Therapist NL is the right place for fitting therapeutic elastic stockings, also known as support stockings. In addition, we also offer various options for measuring compression bandages. The stockings and bandages ensure that the reduction of edema is maintained, but can also be used preventively. The dressings and therapeutic elastic stockings are used, among other things, in lymphedema, lipedema, chronic venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis, wound rose, varicose veins, open leg, standing / sitting professions and pregnancy.
It is important that the stockings are measured on a leg or arm that does not contain edema / moisture. If edema is involved, it is necessary to first start bandaging and / or supplementary edema therapy.
During the intake interview, the skin therapist will assess whether stockings can be measured immediately.
