Carolon Compression Hosiery
Multi-Layer Stocking System. Precise Compression
Overstocking and Understocking are designed to work together to provide clinically appropriate compression. Available in 30-40mmHg (A6531) or 40-50mmHg (A6532). Understocking can be worn alone during sleep to provide 15-20mmHg while patient is recumbent. Sizes A-G (see sizing chart) Colors beige and black (black not available in F and G)
Ease of Application
Application and removal are more easily facilitated since compression is divided between two layers. The fabric on the Overstocking has been specifically designed to slide comfortably over the Understocking. The advanced Multi-Layer Stocking provides accurate compression, proven healing performance, superior patient compliance and allows the patient to take part in the application of their own compression therapy.
A Transition to Healing
The Multi-Layer Stocking System is not intended to be a replacement for conventional compression wraps but rather should be used as a transition to healing.After edema has been stabilized, the Multi-Layer Stockings should be prescribed so that patients may begin to take part in the application of their own compression therapy.
