Medical Compression Stockings (MCS) are used as an alternative medical treatment to relieve symptoms associated with venous disorders. They are characterized by the pressure exerted on the leg. Determination of exact pressure values that the hosiery exerts on patients’ legs is the most significant requirement. To achieve a successful compression therapy, a gradual decreasing pressure profile—100% at the ankle to 40% at the thigh—is required. In this study, a new pressure measuring device has been developed for MCS. This new device allows a pressure profile of MCS to be developed. The advantages of technological and sensitive measurement, simulation of real wear conditions with 3-D leg shape, and flexible and customized adjustments of leg sizes are discussed.
