  • Aching, heavy and uncomfortable legs

What are DVT and PE?

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a medical condition characterised by the formation of blood clots in the deep veins of the legs or pelvis.

Causes of DVT
  • prolonged immobility
  • surgery
  • cancer
  • hormonal imbalances
  • genetic factors
Symptoms of DVT
  • swelling
  • pain
  • tenderness
  • redness in the affected area

Pulmonary embolism (PE) occurs when a blood clot from the leg or pelvis breaks off and travels to the lungs, causing a blockage.

Symptoms of PE
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pain
  • coughing up blood
  • a rapid heart rate

The risk factors for PE are similar to those for DVT, and both conditions require prompt medical attention to prevent serious complications.



Are you troubled by the discomfort and appearance of varicose veins?

Our specially designed compression stockings offer targeted support, improving blood circulation, reducing swelling, and alleviating symptoms associated with varicose veins. Experience the difference actiLEGS can make in managing and improving the health of your legs.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted, and swollen veins that usually occur in the legs and feet. They are a common condition caused by weakened or damaged valves that allow blood to flow backwards and pool in the veins

The symptoms of varicose veins
  • aching
  • throbbing
  • cramping
  • itching
  • swelling in the affected areas
  • They may also appear as bulging, blue- or purple-coloured, twisted veins.
What are the causes of varicose veins?

The causes of varicose veins may include age, genetics, pregnancy, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Other factors that may increase the risk of developing varicose veins include smoking, hormonal changes, and a history of blood clots.

Treatments for varicose veins

There are several treatments available for varicose veins, including lifestyle changes, compression stockings, sclerotherapy, laser treatment, and surgery. Compression stockings, such as actiLEGS’ compression stockings, are a non-invasive and effective treatment option that can help relieve the symptoms of varicose veins.

Compression stockings for varicose veins

actiLEGS’ compression stockings feature a graduated compression design that provides strong compression at the ankle and gradually decreases up the limb. This improves blood circulation in the lower extremities by preventing blood clots in the vein valves and reducing the diameter of surface veins. This forces the blood into the deep vein system, thereby reducing venous insufficiency. While there are several treatment options available, compression stockings such as actiLEGS’ can provide relief for symptoms and improve blood circulation in the legs, reducing the risk of complications.

What are venous leg ulcers?

Venous leg ulcers are open sores that occur on the lower leg or ankle due to poor circulation caused by damaged or blocked veins. These ulcers are common in people with varicose veins, obesity, and a history of blood clots. Symptoms of venous leg ulcers include pain, swelling, redness, and skin discolouration.

What are venous leg ulcers?

The main cause of venous leg ulcers is chronic venous insufficiency, where the valves in the veins are weakened, causing blood to pool in the legs. This can cause pressure on the veins, leading to the formation of ulcers.

Treatment of venous leg ulcers with compression stockings

Treatment for venous leg ulcers typically involves addressing the underlying cause of poor circulation, such as wearing compression stockings. Compression stockings like actiLEGS’ can help improve circulation by applying pressure to the legs, reducing swelling, and preventing blood from pooling in the veins. This helps to promote the flow of blood back to the heart and can prevent further ulcers from forming.

Other treatments

In addition to wearing compression stockings, other treatments for venous leg ulcers include wound care, antibiotics, and surgery to repair or remove damaged veins. It is important to seek medical attention if you have symptoms of venous leg ulcers, as they can become infected and lead to serious health complications. With the help of actiLEGS’ compression stockings, you can improve your circulation and reduce the risk of developing venous leg ulcers.

What is Lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is a condition that results in swelling due to a buildup of lymphatic fluid in the body. This condition can cause discomfort and affect a person’s daily life.

  • swelling in one or more limbs, usually in the arms or legs
  • tightness
  • heaviness
  • discomfort
  • aching
  • difficulty moving the affected limb

Lymphoedema occurs when the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing excess fluid from the body, is not working correctly. The condition may be caused by a range of factors, including surgery, radiation therapy, infection, obesity, and genetics.


Lymphoedema is divided into two types: primary and secondary.

Primary lymphoedema is rare and occurs due to genetic abnormalities that affect the lymphatic system.

Secondary lymphoedema, on the other hand, is more common and occurs due to damage or obstruction to the lymphatic system.


The treatment of lymphoedema typically involves a combination of therapies, including compression therapy, exercise, manual lymphatic drainage, and skincare. Compression therapy involves the use of compression garments, such as stockings, to promote lymphatic fluid flow.

Compression stockings for lymphoedema

Acti Legs’ compression stockings provide graduated compression, which means that they provide strong compression at the ankle and gradually decrease up the leg. This design helps to reduce swelling by promoting the flow of lymphatic fluid out of the affected limb. The stockings also help to prevent the progression of lymphoedema by keeping the diameter of the surface veins small, which helps to keep the fluid moving towards the deeper veins. Wearing Acti Legs’ compression stockings as a part of lymphoedema treatment can help reduce symptoms, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life.

These enlarged and twisted veins are usually seen in the legs, but they can also occur in other parts of the body.

Symptoms of varicose veins in pregnancy
  • aching or heavy legs,
  • swelling
  • itching
  • visible bulging of the veins
  • In some cases, varicose veins can also cause skin discolouration and ulcers.
Causes of varicose veins in pregnant women

Hormonal changes, weight gain, and a genetic predisposition play a role in causing varicose veins in pregnant women.

Types of varicose veins

There are several types of varicose veins, including primary varicose veins, which are inherited, and secondary varicose veins, which can result from a blockage in the deep veins.


Treatment options for varicose veins in pregnancy include wearing compression stockings, which help to improve circulation and reduce swelling and discomfort. It is also recommended to maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, avoid standing or sitting for prolonged periods, and elevate the legs whenever possible.
