Stump stockings made from compressive fabric promote in combination with wound dressing the wound healing after amputation. The soft, smooth inner surface of the fabric ensures the stockings are comfortable to wear.
Juzo compression stump stockings have been developed on the basis of our company’s long-standing experience in manufacturing both round-knitted and flat-knitted medical compression stockings. Along with compression stump stockings for the legs, Juzo also produces made-to-measure arm stump stockings.
In the period immediately after an amputation, the stump is particularly sensitive and painful. Thanks to their smoothness, Juzo stump stockings are especially easy to put on. The soft and elastic top bands ensure the stockings can provide optimal treatment both for stumps with a large circumference and those with adipose, edemic tissue. Juzo stump stockings are available in the grades Juzo Dynamic, Dynamic Silver as well as Juzo Expert, Expert Cotton and Expert Silver.
Optimum skin compatibility for sensitive, post-operative stumps
Correct compression dosage, and a reduction in compression level in the proximal direction from the distal stump end
The well-balanced elasticity ensures comfortable wearing characteristics for the patient
Being made from synthetic elastomers, they are easy to care for and ointment proof
Q: What is compression? What is the difference in compression?
A: You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots.
Q: What does mmHg mean?
A: mmhg stands for "millimeter of mercury", a way to measure pressure. The higher the number, the tighter the garment will squeeze and the more compression it provides.
Q: How can we wash the garments? And with which soap or detergent?
A: We recommend to hand wash in warm water and air dry. You can use mild soup of the washing solution that we provide such as the jobst jolastic, hosiery mate washing solution, sigvaris liquid washing solution etc.
See our full washing instructions.
Q: What is the difference between open toe and close toe?
A: There is no therapeutic difference between open and closed toe socks. The choice is yours, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: What is opaque?
A: Opaque is a thicker material that provides great coverage and your skin will be far less visible. Usually worn in winter because of the thickness.
Q: What is sheer?
A: Sheer is a thinner, dressier material. Customer usually like these because they can use them as dress socks for work or church.
Q: Do I get compression at the toe area?
A: No. Compression begins at the ankle and gradually lessens as it goes up the leg. This reduces pooling in the legs and helps the veins return blood to the heart.
Q: Will a thicker material give me more support than the sheer material?
A: No. The compression provided is measured by mmHg and is the same no matter the material. The choice of material is up to you, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: If I get pantyhose will I get more compression than with a knee-hi?
