Patient testimonials about the VenoTrain cocoon A care effect you can feel

Issue 03/2017

An observational study that was conducted during the course of the development phase on 38 patients with chronic venous insufficiency showed that , for dry skin in particular (corneometry < 15), the VenoTrain cocoon reduced scaly skin and significantly increased the moisture content of the skin. The microcirculation and circulation in the upper layer of the skin was visibly improved and CVI-related edema reduced. The statistical results tell a positive story – but what really shines through is the personal feedback from the test patients.

Like my skin had been regenerated

“I have been wearing medical compression stockings for 20 years due to primary lymphedema. However, this has caused the skin on my legs to get drier. It is always scaly and flaky when I take off my stockings in the evening. Without the right sort of skincare, it just wouldn’t work at all. While wearing the VenoTrain cocoon, I could feel the caring effect right from the start. My skin was transformed in the first two weeks of wearing the stockings. The dry skin had peeled off and what remained was smooth and soft – it was like my skin had been regenerated. The caring effect also lasted well. On top of that , I like the way the stockings look. I like to stand out a bit – the bold red and marine blue are my favorites.”

“I have worn medical compression stockings since my varicose vein stripping 14 years ago. I noticed a better compression effect with the Bauerfeind stockings. They were also very good at regulating my skin’s moisture. After wearing the stockings for one to two weeks, my skin was smoother and not as dry and scaly as before. The skincare provided by the stocking was sufficient – I didn’t need to use any additional care products.”

“I have suffered from varicose veins for seven years and have worn medical compression stockings since the problem began. This new stocking felt very comfortable, and softer than my old one. I have very dry and sensitive skin. Wearing the VenoTrain cocoon has had a very positive effect on the way my skin looks. But I can feel this positive change too. In addition, I really like the look of the stocking. The ribbed structure is a great design feature for us male wearers.”

“I’ve been wearing compression stockings for five years. I had surgery on my right knee and, funnily enough, my left foot swelled afterwards. But compression stockings enable me to keep it under control. With normal compression stockings, I would always notice some sort of dust when taking them off – initially I had no idea that this was my own skin flaking off. It’s simply ideal for me to have skincare integrated into my stocking. This means I don’t have to apply any extra moisturizing cream to my legs. I also find it easier to put my shoes on when I’m wearing the VenoTrain cocoon.”

“I have been wearing compression stockings for 35 years because I have varicose veins. I’ve also had surgery on my right leg. My skin doesn’t usually get that dry, but while testing the VenoTrain cocoon I noticed that my skin was calmer. Small areas of redness and skin irritation were less visible, and the veins were less noticeable too. The VenoTrain cocoon is an attractive, soft stocking that is easy to put on. I like the material – it feels more natural than fully synthetic stockings. I prefer the light-colored stocking (silk) for working in my practice. I also like to wear muted colors, such as marine or black, in my free time.”
