Are all Compression Stockings created equal?
No, many of the so-called compression stockings on the market are insufficient or incorrectly graded and do not improve circulation at all. You could just as well buy a pair of stockings two sizes too small and get the same result – discomfort! These stockings are easily identified as they are not clearly labeled with a compression rating.
How can I ensure I’m getting Therapeutic Compression Stockings that actually work?
Compression Class stockings – the type used by healthcare professionals – are Australian ARTG Registered and scientifically graduated. They will always come in a selection of compressions. Many private health insurers offer a significant rebate for ARTG Registered Medical Compression Garments.
Which Compression Rating is right for me?
Compression Stockings are designed with highest compression around the ankle, decreasing up the calf to the thigh. There are varying degrees of compression:
Class 1 (moderate compression): Exerts a graduated pressure 20mmHg at the ankle, decreasing to 15mmHg at the calf and thigh. Helps prevent and relieve minor to moderate varicose veins during pregnancy. Helps relieve tired, aching legs and minor swelling of the feet, ankles and legs (prescription not required).
Class 2 (firm compression): Exerts a graduated pressure of 30mmHg at the ankle, decreasing to 20mmHg at the calf and thigh. Helps prevent and relieve moderate to severe varicose veins during pregnancy. Helps in the treatment of moderate to severe Edema or Lymphoedema (prescription not required).
Class 3 (extra firm compression): Exerts a graduated pressure of 40mmHg at the ankle, decreasing to 30mmHg at the calf and thigh. Helps prevent and relieve severe varicose veins during pregnancy. Used in the treatment of severe Edema and Lymphoedema (prescription required – seek medical advice).
Important – Check Label for:
Australian ARTG Registered and clearly labelled graduated compression class as a check for quality and effectiveness needs.
Class 1: Compression 15-20mmHg – Prescription not required
Class 2: Compression 20-30mmHg – Prescription not required
Class 3: Compression 30-40mmHg – Prescription recommended
