Starting with its founder, Conrad Jobst, who suffered from venous disease, JOBST® has always had the strongest commitment to improving the quality of life for those with venous disease or swelling related conditions.
We are committed to quality. This quality is reflected in our superior design. A design which is tested with patients and manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
We all want to enjoy healthy and active lives but with all the tasks of work and family we may forget about maintaining the health of our legs.
Problems with the veins of the leg occur in both men and women of all ages but certain factors increase the risk of venous problems. Health conditions, lifestyle habits, heredity, injury, surgery, age, and pregnancy all play a role.
While you are unable to control heredity, age, surgery and changes during pregnancy, you can improve lifestyle factors through exercise, good posture, avoiding inactivity, choosing good fitting clothing and footwear, and wearing gradient compression hosiery that is right for you.
Spider veins are a common minor problem. These are small red or purplish dilated end vessels. While they may be unattractive they pose no harm. Other venous problems may cause leg discomfort, leg swelling, and in severe cases skin breakdown. Vein problems affect both men and women and are more likely to occur the older we age.
The first few times you wear your compression garment you will notice the squeeze. It is OK to begin wearing your stockings gradually - but it is important to wear your compression garments everyday. The care of you compression stockings is easy: Hand or machine-wash with warm water and mild soap or detergent.
