Additional Information Provided by the Manufacturer:
Offering one of the largest variety of compression stockings in the industry, Juzo provides products that are ideal for every lifestyle and specialized need. Juzo has led the compression therapy garment industry in creating a high quality product that offers its customers freedom in motion and, in turn, the freedom to maintain their active lifestyle.
Instructions for Care:
Juzo hose should be replaced after six months of normal wear. They start losing their effectiveness after that time. If they seem to be getting looser, than you are not receiving the maximum benefits of their compression strength.
Juzo Compression therapy garments should be washed and dried each night. Latex-free garments can be machine washed and dried on low heat settings.
When to take measurements:
It is important that the edema is at its most reduced state. Most often this is found first thing in the morning or at the end of treatment.
How to take length measurements:
Length measurements should be taken from each circumference. It is recommended that you mark the leg with a non-permanent, non-toxic marker at each circumference measurement made.
The length measurement is then taken even with the floor, along the inside of the leg, up to each circumference point.
Accessories: We recommend that donning gloves always be worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment. This is especially true with the sheer compression hosiery. Other people prefer to use a donning aid like the Juzo Slippie Gator or the Homecraft Compression Stocking Aid.
Don't forget Juzo Detergent to help ensure your hosiery last for 4-6 months.
Many factors contribute to the overall health of our legs: heredity, weight, age, diet and activity level. But it's the internal function of the legs that also plays an important role: calf muscles, arteries, veins, and vein valves--the internal highway of blood and oxygen flow.
The flow of blood in the veins is assisted by a series of one-way valves. The valves remain open when the blood flows toward the heart, and then closed after blood passes through. Over time, an increase in pressure can stretch the vein walls. If a vein becomes enlarged and over-stretched the valves cannot close properly, causing blood to leak back down into the lower legs, resulting in poor circulation.
If this happens you may begin to develop symptoms, such as:
Using Compression Therapy:
Graduated compression stockings and socks are important to leg health. Designed for people who are mobile, they work with a graduated effect, providing 100% compression at the most distal point, being the ankle and decreasing up the leg. The compression is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). They help minimize muscle aches, swelling, and symptoms of fatigue. Exercise and a healthy lifestyle will strengthen your legs, but wearing graduated compression stockings or socks will support the internal function of the veins.
