Now it’s time to come to the topic where our pulse accelerates – the oedema treatment with compression! To be more specific: the treatment by means of compression stockings, bandages and wraps. In this module we will limit ourselves to compression stockings though. You will be guided through the different stockings which can be divided into circular-knitted (without seam) and flat-knitted (with seam) products.
Also, we will discuss the use of silver, we will learn, hysteresis and stiffness and we will talk about the different materials and their therapeutic applications. After this online training you will know all about the differences and when to use which type of stocking. In fact, did you know that in the various guidelines compression is seen as the most important form of lymphoedema treatment?
