Custom compression garments designed for venous insufficiency assist weak or damaged veins with the circulation of blood. Also, they help reduce and control swollen and bulging veins associated with this condition. These garments are designed to exert gradient pressure, mimicking the action of the veins as they move blood toward the heart. Gradient pressure is highest at the distal end reducing in gradient to the proximal end.
Benefits to the Patient
Gottfried brand custom compression garments for venous insufficiency are manufactured for an anatomically exact fit. Because they are custom made they can increase compliance as a result of options and extras that ease donning, doffing and reducing the discomfort associated with normal wear. Numerous options are available and special requirements are easily accommodated.
Why a Prescription is Required
Custom compression garments for venous insufficiency from Gottfried Medical are designed to provide significantly higher compression than is found in common OTC retail products. As a result, they are not available without a prescription.

Compression garments designed for lymphedema are similar to those for venous insufficiency, assisting weak or damaged valves in the lymphatic "vein-like" capillaries in the movement of lymph into the veins, to reduce or prevent swollen limbs associated discomfort. (more…)
Compression garments designed for scar suppression and control differ in their design from those for venous insufficiency and lymphedema. These garments provide uniform compression from the distal end to the proximal end. (more…)
