Compression Garment Supply & Advice

Compression garments are instrumental in preventing deep vein thrombosis as well as being essential elements in the management of wounds and diabetic ulcers.

Choosing the right compression garment from socks and stockings to under garments is a critical aspect in ensuring they do the job they were designed for.

In addition, properly fitting medical compression garments is pivotal to maximising their benefits.

Properly fitting garments can help manage many health conditions including varicose veins, venous insufficiency, oedema associated with travel or pregnancy, DVT prevention and tired achy legs.

It’s important that these garments are properly prescribed and fitted by healthcare professionals with appropriate training and experience.

Ask your community pharmacist about how they can help you choose and fit the right garment for you.
