Activa Compression Liners

clinical information

Light compression that aids good blood flow and promotes healthier legs

Activa Liners Provide light compression for maintenance therapy, palliative care, and patients non-concordant with higher levels of compression.

Activa Liners can be layered by wearers who find the lower levels of compression easier to apply. For example, two 10mmHg liners could provide 20mmHg* compression.

The liners also form part of the Activa and AcitLymph Leg Ulcer Hosiery Kits. As part of the Activa and ActiLymph Hosiery Kit, the silky liner helps to protect delicate skin and retains dressings, enabling the top stocking to glide on smoothly. Leg

Ulcer Hosiery Kits can be used to treat venous leg ulcers.
