Dr. Marcus Duda's has been actively treating and researching wounds of the lower extremities for over 20 years. That interest led him to develop new solutions for treatment and prevention for his patients.
In both his clinical research and practice he recognized that there is a single factor that significantly increases the success of non-surgical lower limb wound care.
Compression systems are the de facto solution for many kinds of lower limb wounds and conditions, including edema and venous stasis ulcers, but many of them are impractical, difficult to use, made of irritating materials or generally uncomfortable.
Consistent use also determines whether the course of wound care treatment is effective in the long run.
Dr. Duda knew there was another way, and this led to the Vive Wear medical compression sock & compression sleeve combination
His designs are:
The results, in both clinical and patient trials, with consistent and constant use, have been startling:
Since consistent, constant use is key to life-long success for those that need compression products, Vive Wear has changed the game. Vive Wear compression products are easy to don and doff, whenever you need to, whether you need to take a shower, or whether it is simply time to change socks for cleaning.
Read more on the research behind the Vive Wear products. The years we’ve spent developing and perfecting our medical compression socks and shrinkers has been heavily influenced by both clinical and patient trials.

The Vive Wear Medical Compression sock system was recognized with a 1st Place Award at the 27th Annual Symposium on Advanced Wound Care & Wound Healing Society (SAWC & WHS) in 2014. The award recognized his abstract, "Case Series Evaluation of a Novel Compression Stocking for the Treatment of Lower Extremity Edema Wounds" and validated his new approach to treating lower extremity wounds.
