The use of medical compression stockings is a basic therapy for diseases of the venous and lymphatic system. In order to effectively relieve the symptoms suffered by patients, the stockings must have certain properties: they must, for example, be categorized in one of four compression classes and guarantee a pressure reduction from the distal to the proximal. A good level of quality is thus essential so that patients can enjoy the medical benefits of compression stockings.
The RAL Quality Mark for Medical Compression Stockings guarantees this quality. It ensures that the stockings are developed in close cooperation with the medical profession and regularly modified to comply with the latest scientific findings. This is why the RAL Quality Mark is now firmly established in the health sector. Medical compression stockings that are prescribed by a doctor must hold the RAL Quality Mark.
