Customised garments give evenly graduated compression, avoid pressure points and improve blood circulation. Greater comfort in use also secures better compliance.
Everyone's leg is different
People do not come in standard sizes, small medium or large. Shape can also vary significantly, even from one leg to the other.
Standard pressure stockings can only deliver an average compression for the average person, so in reality the actual pressure will vary from place to place.
This makes the garment uncomfortable, reduces its effectiveness and can even make things worse in some cases.
3D modelling over 260,000 data points
Isobar garments are custom-made to fit your exact body size.
Firstly a 3D scan is made of your leg or arm and the data is sent directly to the manufacturers. In some countries you can even arrange for a representative to scan you at home or in the clinic or workplace.
Then the garment is knitted precisely for you, to ensure that an even pressure is maintained around the leg.
Finally the finished garment is sent to you directly after about 10 working days.
Comfort is not a luxury. If a pressure garment is uncomfortable it will lie in the drawer unused, especially if it is intended to prevent problems that have not yet occurred.
Isobar garments retain their original profile over 100 washes, so they remain both comfortable and effective for a long period.
With many pressure stockings the elasticity fades quite quickly over time, so after a few washes they are no longer of much use.
Only custom manufacture can ensure that an even gradation in pressure up the leg is achieved. In this way the garment can be most effective in aiding circulation, whether you are tall or short or larger in one limb than another.
Isobar compression socks for flying
Isobar compression socks are clinically proven to improve return blood flow to the heart, to minimise risk of DVT, ankle swelling and jetlag.
