What are Support Stockings or Therapeutic Elastic Stockings (TEK)?
First of all, a brief introduction to the world of the support stocking, officially TEK, but let’s stick to support stockings for convenience. These socks are provided on prescription via the banda yeast and must meet strict conditions:
- Condition 1 There must be pressure from distal to proximal. This is the medical term for: further away from the heart / towards the heart.
- Condition 2 The stocking must follow the leg contour very carefully.
- Condition 3 Support stockings should always fit within a certain compression class. If not, they should not be called compression stockings.
The Herzog PRO compression socks are manufactured on the same machines on which support stockings are knitted. The socks deliver 30 mmHg on the ankle to 23 mmHg below the knee. There are 4 compression classes that are used depending on the medical picture. The amount of compression of the Herzog PRO compression socks falls into the high part of pressure class 2, even at the pressure class 3 limit.
