Finally more comfortable! - The update for the mediven® 550 arm socks

- Advertising -

Oh you dear arm socks ...

For some wearers, including me, the arm stocking is something like the boss. While your legs and head somehow get used to compression tights over time, your arms are quite a problem. Okay, I don't like to complain about nakedness, but today I can do that too. One theory why they are such a challenge is that they are closer to the heart and therefore more strenuous to wear. I have also noticed that it is more difficult for my arm muscles than for the leg muscles to work against the pressure. Rapid fatigue when writing or carrying is inevitable. That won't work anymore with the moving worker career. Phew, lucky.

The mediven® 550 arm - full compression ahead!

Now the mediven® 550 arm is the compression supply with very high wall stability and that means up to now that if you want to have the full compression power on your arm, it can not be a picnic when you carry it. However, anyone who, like me, suffers from pain in the arms or needs maximum muscle work due to lymphedema, depends on this quality. The news from the house averageThat the arm socks are now more comfortable, I welcomed them with open and, admittedly, very well wrapped, tired arms. Hallelujah, praise the compression!

But what exactly has changed now to make it work?

Attention, we are now learning a fancy technical term with which you can make big eyes in the medical supply store: The higher longitudinal stretch and the more elastic knitted fabric ensure the new wearing comfort. For you, this simply means that the mediven® 550 arm is more comfortable to put on and wear. And it's true! After a 10-year career in compression, I was seriously amazed at how much faster I slipped into my sleeve and glove. The difference is clearly noticeable!

Try it out and maybe it's love at second sight after all. Well, it doesn't have to be love, but a successful community of convenience sounds good. We want to stay humble.

But never forget, illness is the enemy, not compression. And the mediven® 550 arm certainly not at all.

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
