Story Check In a pilot study, Dr. med. Anja Oelert et al. were able to show that compression stockings reduce capillary hypertension in CVI patients’ feet.
- In accordance with the “servo-null” method, the capillary pressure in the nail fold was measured at rest and when the calf muscle pump was activated.
- Measurements were taken with test subjects wearing the VenoTrain ulcertec compression stocking and without the stocking.
- The conclusion was that the VenoTrain ulcertec significantly reduced capillary hypertension and can thus support the healing of venous ulcers to a major extent.
