    What is a ulcer cruris venosum?

    An ulcer cruris venosum is also called an open leg. This is a defect of the skin or wound on the lower leg. This wound does not want to heal well. Ulcus means wound. Cruris means tibia. Venosum comes from the word venen = veins. An ulcer cruris occurs in about two in one hundred people, usually elderly.

    It occurs on the basis of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).

    To decrease the chance of getting an open leg wound, RMC, doctors and specialists have developed a shin protector. This shin protector has entirely been made out of an antibacterial and breathing fabric and can be worn throughout the day. In most cases it sufficiently provides protection against collisions, for example with a suitcase or a shopping cart.

    The mediX® is a Dutch development and is internationally protected.
