Practical experience of the VenoTrain cocoon The “care stocking” is going down well

Issue 01/2018

What do medical retailers and patients think of the new compression stocking?
Bauerfeind life paid a visit to two medical supply retailers to find out.

“I feel really good in it”

“When you have customers and patients sitting in front of you, any skin problems are immediately apparent. And it’s a simple truth that people who are conscientious about wearing their compression stockings have extremely dry skin. I notice it with myself too. If I wear my stockings for several days in a row, my skin starts to become scaly. So I decided to try out the new Bauerfeind VenoTrain cocoon stocking for myself straight away and I feel really good in it. I’m now really keen to see how my skin reacts once I’ve been wearing the stockings for longer and what improvements there are in my skin’s appearance. I really like the look of the stocking – it’s very sporty and stylish. It doesn’t look like a compression stocking, and the blue and red versions are great for young people.
We always try to make time to talk to patients about skincare, even when we have a packed schedule of appointments. And so it’s ideal of course if we can recommend a product with integrated skincare straight off. From the customer’s point of view, it’s great that they don’t need any other skincare products.
I can particularly recommend the VenoTrain cocoon to customers with dry skin. But I also think that it’s possible to get younger patients enthusiastic about this product thanks to the way it looks – people who, like me, often wear jeans, for example.”

“My husband is a big fan of the VenoTrain cocoon. He spends a lot of time at trade fairs, so he often wears compression stockings. He’s been completely won over by the VenoTrain cocoon. His skin feels good, with no itching or scaliness. The extra-special skin-friendliness and care factor of the new stocking are excellent arguments in its favor, especially when it comes to male patients who have previously worn different products. We can start convincing our customers just by letting them feel the sample stockings. The VenoTrain cocoon looks like a traditional , stylish knee-high stocking, but that’s not all – it also has a nicer, smoother feel than other products. With the VenoTrain cocoon, it’s easier to persuade customers to opt for a premium product. The advantages are without doubt the fact that it’s so skin-friendly, extremely comfortable to wear, and looks good too. The integrated skincare goes down well with our fashion-conscious and health-conscious customers.
Anyone can wear this compression stocking, but I would particularly recommend it to customers with dry skin. And especially to customers who have used the VenoTrain ulcertec compression stocking system for a long time and who are now switching to a normal compression stocking. The stocking is also ideal for patients who are just starting out wearing compression stockings.”
