3 Primary Factors Affect Patient Compliance

1. Ease in donning or doffing a stocking

Carolon's multi-directional stretch of the knit-in Spandex enables the patient to easily overcome resistance required to stretch the stocking over the heel.

2. Wearing Comfort

Carolon's knit-in Spandex technology provides a very smooth compression profile.

3. Ease of Care

Carolon has conveniently designed all their compression garments to be both machine washed & tumbled dried.

How Does Carolon Advanced Knitting Construction Work?

Compression garments manufactured with breathable, micro-fibre yarns with a proprietary Carolon Comfort Knit™ design for complete ease of application, maximum stretch characteristics, and soft silky coverage.
Carolon has advanced the knitting technology for medical compression fabric. The elastic yarns are knitted directly within the nylon structure. This unique process allows for the elastic fabric structure to provide accurate compression, multi-dimensional stretch, easier application and better all day comfort.
Standard compression fabric is constructed with elastic yarn “Laid In” the fabric to provide compression. The elastic yarn floats in the stitches using bands of elastic. This type of construction only has two way stretch.
Both ranges benefit from the Carolon Compression Knitted Fabric

Which level of Compression Support to Choose?

Class 1 (14-17 mmHg)


Light pressure helps to prevent edema and leg discomfort. Also helps deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in individuals subjected to immobility.

Class 2 (18-24 mmHg)


Moderate pressure helps to prevent more severe swelling and discomfort. Often used after laser varicose vein and venous ablation procedures.

Class 3 (25-35 mmHg)


A high level of pressure used for those with severe vascular insufficiency and for the prevention and treatment of venous ulcers.

Comfort Advantage of Couture Hosiery

Because of knit-in Spandex technology, Carolon Couture provides a very smooth compression profile from ankle to thigh which means the pressure transition form 100% at the ankle to 40% at the thigh is almost imperceptible to the patient. The smooth compression profile created by the knit-in Spandex technology also means that the pressure under the the top bands of the stockings is no greater than the pressure below the bands unlike many stockings who use higher band pressures to keep the stockings in place resulting in an uncomfortable user experience.
 

Carolon Health Support Medical Stockings that doctors prescribe are specially designed and medically correct for exact graduated compression.
