HOW TO MEASURE COMPRESSION STOCKINGS AND SLEEVES

Measuring for Medical Compression Footwear (Toe Caps)


Find measuring point c-A1 (approximately the middle of the foot) and mark it.


Measure the circumference at c-A1.


Find and mark measuring point c-A (metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints of the toes.


Measure the circumference at c-A.


Foot length measurement, medial (c-A1 to the metatarsophalangeal joint of big toe)


Foot length measurement, lateral (c-A1 to metatarsophalangeal joint of little toe).


Measure circumference X at the base of the toe. NOTE: For example, the circumference and length measurements are taken at the 2nd toe.


Measure circumference Z at the end of the toe or where the compression part of the toe cap should end.


Use the tape measure to determine the toe length from X to endpoint Z.
