How To Measure Guide

Please follow these instructions carefully to determine the correct size for different product styles.

Measurements should always be taken in the following order, and as soon as possible after waking when swelling is minimal.

CALF STYLE

  1. Measure the ankle circumference at the narrowest part of the
    ankle, above the ankle bone. Use the appropriate series sizing
    chart to determine if ankle is SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE or
    X-LARGE. Note: This should be your first measurement.
  2. Measure the calf circumference at the fullest part of the calf.
  3. Determine the calf length by measuring from the floor up
    to the bend of the knee. This measurement is taken on the
    outside of the calf.

PANTYHOSE AND THIGH-HIGH STYLE

  1. Measure the ankle circumference at the narrowest part of the ankle,
    above the ankle bone. Use the appropriate series sizing chart to determine
    if ankle is SMALL, MEDIUM or LARGE. Note: This should be your
    first measurement.
  2. Measure the calf circumference at the fullest part of the calf.
  3. Skip Step 3 (but refer to General Guidelines #6 below).
  4. Measure the thigh at its widest circumference.
  5. Determine the thigh length by measuring from the floor up to
    the gluteal fold.
  6. Determine the hip circumference by measuring the
    widest part of the hip.

General Guidelines

  1. Measurements should always be taken as soon as possible after waking when swelling is minimum.
  2. Measure next to bare skin, not over clothing.
  3. The measuring system is based on having the foot flat against the floor and the leg at a right angle to the foot.
  4. Measurements should be taken by pulling the tape snugly around the leg, but without constriction.
  5. Length measurements should be taken from the ground up.
  6. Take all measurements, even if the patient only requires calf-length products, as the patient might decide at a
    later date to purchase additional styles.
