Constant standing or sitting impedes the flow of blood towards the heart. It takes up to a minute for all our blood (4–6 liters) to circulate once through the human body. Our blood is pumped through the body almost 1500 times a day. This equates to a workload of approx. 7000 liters per day or over two million liters a year. With our veins transporting approximately 7000 liters of blood back to the heart each day, the veins in our legs have an especially difficult job to do because the blood must also overcome the force of gravity to reach the heart.
It has been proven that compression therapy with medical compression stockings is effective in the prevention and treatment of venous diseases, and produces no adverse reactions in users. We fund and participate in studies on venolymphatic disorder. As a result, we enhance general knowledge in the field of compression therapy. Scientifically established evidence enables us to develop products that fit perfectly for our customers’ well being. On the following pages we would like to share that knowledge with you.
