I use Jobst and Juzo and both are very good. My Jobst class 2 flat knit tights are made to measure and I can get those on the NHS. NNE

I'm on my first lot of Juzo, also curious why you don't like them. I've had Jobst in the past but my therapist changed me to Juzo to try them out, would like to know if there is anything I need to watch out for with the Juzo.

Thank you

Vicky

hello I wear active lymph grade 2 below knee stockings which I get on prescription, as an alternative I have tried the JOBST range in similar garments because they do x colours which is nice for a change, both brands I would say are good quality , the jobst felt softer material.

they come in different pressures so you need to know what you have, I wear 23/32 mm pressure, there is a lesser type and one higher they do.

They have all compression... I had mine sized to fit me only... They are custom made and worked well but arthritis got so bad I couldn't get them on any moe so I went with farrow

Hey Juzo is softer but for me the compression was not enough (although it was class III it said). Mediven is less soft, but I trust more the compression...

Hi! I've used both JOBST ad JUZO and find that JUZO is cheaper (I'm in the USA) and much easier to put on. I've had lymphedema for 7 years in my right leg, and use 40 compression, thigh high. I also find JUZO to be a lighter weight. Therefore more comfortable in the summer months. I live in Florida by the way. I hope this is helpful. God bless you!

I've used job at for the past 20 years.. But the get to be s pain to put on especially in summer when it's hot. I finally this year went with the farrow wraps and I love them. Easy on easy off and at bedtime I havd these pressure sleep stockings... But it's not really a stocking it's more like a leg warmer... Hard to explain.. But works do much better than the socks or being wrapped up from toe to groin....
