Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The products are made of highly modern functional yarn, extra soft knitted by a special production technology to avoid skin irritations by using the stockings. Different qualities and yarn mixtures (combination with cotton, microfibres etc.) according to clients needs can be produced. For instance, made by a special production technology the cotton is inside the stockings and so particularly the products are suitable for allergy sufferers. Standard as well as made-to-measure medical compression stockings are offered. A large selection of modern compression stockings available in a fashion trend oriented color range is offered. That is why the stockings do not look like medical compression stockings but elegant and could be attractive for all kinds and age groups of patients/clients. The medical compression stockings support prevention and healing of different venous and lymphatic diseases. The support stockings help to avoid venous problems and tired, swollen legs especially during long distance travels or flights and support the muscle function. That could be an important advantage for travellers or athletes. The fibers for support stockings can be combined with active ingredients from Aloe Vera extracts or other moisturizers to increase the wellbeing of the clients. The offered special detergent for stockings contains no fabric softener and is particularly gentle. Damages to the fibres can be reduced and the lifetime of the product can be extended. That reduces costs for the customers. The products are developed in close cooperation with medical specialists, technicians, users and designers. That guarantees high quality and adapted to the latest medical findings products. The medical compression (according to RAL) and support stockings are “Made in Germany” and Öko-Tex® Standard 100 certified. The orthopaedic products are offered in different stabilization levels and are useable in case of acut care, aftercare or prophylaxis.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
Potential distributors could be authorized dealers that wish to complete their product portfolio or medical supply stores They must have an existing rich network of contacts to doctors, hospitals, medical suppliers, health insurances etc. The network is crucial, not the size of the partner. The potential partner for the distribution of medical stockings should have basic medical knowledge in venous and lymphatic disease and should be able to advice clients on which products are suitable to solve their problems and how to use the stockings. Partners for the distribution of orthopaedic products are mainly sought in Poland, Romania and Spain. The distributor should have storage facilities.
