Story Check At Greifswald University Hospital, Sophie Kindermann conducted a study which investigated the effectiveness and comfort of medical compression stockings compared with a conventional knee-high stocking (8–10 mmHg) in cases of orthostatic discomfort and edema based on largely sedentary or standing activities.
- The compression stockings prevented the legs from swelling over the course of the day.
- The study participants rated the wearing comfort of the compression stockings as significantly better than that of the knee-high stocking (8–10 mmHg).
- Furthermore, discomfort was noticeably alleviated by the compression stockings. Some participants were completely free from symptoms.
