Everyone who has ever had an inpatient operation knows them: the white hospital stockings - thigh-length and not sexy at all. In fact, they are true guardian angels when it comes to preventing thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

But not all socks are the same: mediven's thrombexin 18 from medi performed best in a comparison test * with socks from other manufacturers. In contrast to drugs, which, regardless of the manufacturer, always contain the same amounts of active ingredient, the measurements revealed large differences in the pressure behavior of the stockings. The mediven thrombexin 18 achieved the best results in terms of compression pressure and pressure curve. This knowledge is crucial, because an effective thrombosis prophylaxis with medical thrombosis prophylaxis stockings only takes place if the physical properties (graduated compression pressure over the entire leg) are guaranteed by the manufacturing process and material. The stockings only work if they achieve the required technical and functional safety.
