How to Measure
Medical compression garments should be measured by a trained fitter where possible
Important points when measuring for compression garments
- Early morning if possible when leg is not swollen
- If the leg is swollen, elevate leg for a period of time
- Patient should be standing where possible
REMEMBER! CORRECT SIZE IS EVERYTHING!
- If the garment is too tight, the client will be uncomfortable and the likelihood of them wearing the stockings all day is slim.
- If the garment is too big, the client will spend all day pulling it up
- Incorrect sizing will cause discomfort to the client and will result in poor compliance
- If measurements are at the very end of the size scale there will be minimal stretch left in the garment
- If this occurs, move up to the next size. This will still give the correct compression, but garment will be more comfortable and easier to don.
- If a client is very elderly or has poor muscle strength, start with a lower compression garment. Once they are used to wearing and donning this garment, you can introduce a higher compression if needed.
- To get accustomed to wearing compression garments, wear them for a couple of hours a day initially and gradually increase the time for wearing them.
