The cause of venous disorders is usually a weakness of the connective tissue,
Often the cause of the problems is in the groin or the back of the knee. We have thousands of veins that transport the blood back to the heart. In the case of the legs, from the toes up to the heart – and against the force of gravity.
With every movement of the legs, the blood is pumped up one level, so to speak. To prevent it from flowing back, there are venous valves so that the blood is transported to the heart in sections.
If the function of these valves is impaired, however, the blood flows back into the leg – in accordance with gravity – and varicose veins can form or edema occurs, i.e. the leg swells.
In the deep vein system of the leg, about 90% of the blood is transported back to the heart. In the superficial venous system, only about 10%. Both venous systems are connected by so-called perforating veins, which transport the blood from the superficial venous system into the deep leg vein system.
An important perforans vein system is located in the area of the inner ankle. This is where teveno® technology comes in.
Both venous systems are connected via so-called perforating veins, which transport blood from the superficial venous system into the deep leg vein system.
Prevent and avoid venous disease:
Sitting for long periods of time – little movement, such as:
- in the airplane
- in the car
- on the bus
- in the office etc.
Standing for long periods of time such as:
- on the assembly line
- during assembly
- in sales
