The age of the patients was from 18 to 65 years old (average age was 45.4±1.2). All patients had the following medical examination tests: measurement of the length and diameter of the calf and hips, duplex ultrasound scan test to measure the speed of venous blood flow in the common femoral vein, volume measurement, measurement of the diameter of the legs in three dimensions, laboratory tests results (fibrinogen, SFMC, APTT, aggregation of thrombocytes); assessment of objective and subjective clinical symptoms, assessment of adherence to the use of product.

Results. This tested compression hosiery is effective method of correction and prophylaxis of the chronic venous disease of the legs. It is confirmed by positive dynamics of the objective and subjective clinical symptoms during treatment.
