EdemaWear® Open Toe Stockinette - Singles


A novel approach to compression

Compression is necessary for the management of swelling, edema and lymphedema often associated with lower extremity wounds.

EdemaWear is a novel approach that delivers compression under a series of longitudinal ridges running parallel to the limb. In contrast to conventional circumferential compression wraps. Longitudinal compression cannot cause a tourniquet effect that could interfere with limb circulation and lymphatic drainage.

EdemaWear delivers optimal pressure under the parallel ridges while leaving four fifths of the skin surface free. This provides optimal delivery of arterial blood and the efficient return of lymph and venous blood to the circulatory system.

Constructed from durable Nylon and Lycra, EdemaWear is easy to clean and is reusable. Its low profile and open construction ensure that it is cool and comfortable in use while allowing patients to use their existing footwear during treatment.

Unlike conventional wraps and stockings patients and caregivers alike find EdemaWear is easy to put on and easy to remove. It can be the first option for compression or as an alternative to compression modalities that patients refuse to use.


  • Edema from venous hypertension;
  • Post-op edema;
  • Lymphedema;
  • Venous leg ulcers;
  • Skin tears;
  • Wherever safer, more comfortable and acceptable compression is required.

How to select the correct size of EdemaWear  

Choosing the correct stockinet size is the most important factor in determining the effectiveness and comfort of EdemaWear.These following steps should help you chose the correct stockinet size for the limb advised by your healthcare professional.

  1. Find the limb circumference. Measure around the thickest part of the applicable limb with a tape measure.
  2. Choose the size, from the table below, that corresponds to the maximum limb circumference. This can be more than or equal to the limb you have just measured.
  3. Once you have measured the circumference, then measure the limb length. If the limb exceeds the length listed below for that size, then you need to order two. The size small package contains 2 stockinets while all other sizes are individually packaged.
