Dress to Compress
Dress to Compress is a business that provides correct fitting and supply of graduated compression stockings. It serves patientse in need of compression to manage DVT prophylaxis, limb oedema after DVT, post varicose vein treatment support, lower limb ulceration in the setting of venous insufficiency, and lymphoedema. In this capacity it has a client base that owes its growth to a variety of referral sources: the patient who is travelling overseas and needs travel stockings, the physician managing DVT, and the vascular surgeon treating lower limb vascular disease.
Dress to Compress works closely with Geelong Vascular Service, the largest and longest standing dedicated Vascular Surgery practice in Victoria’s Western region. The practice serves a population of over 500,000. We are the sole provider for the Practice’s compression stocking needs.
We source a number of stocking products; importing from Europe and the USA and stock a wide range of garments to meet client demand.
We also run educational seminars for general practitioners and community nurses on the correct fitting of graduated compression stockings, and are committed to improving community education on the value of proper compression in managing limb oedema.
