Getting the pressure right! Compression testing

The market for compression textiles outside the medical sector is growing, and this is resulting in new target groups, but also strong competitors. Why not benefit from our extensive expertise, based on many years of testing medical compression products, and make your company and its products stand out for their premium quality?

We provide independent verification of the stated compressive effect and monitor it through regular quality controls.

We test the pressure and pressure profile of compression hosiery using the HOSY measuring device.

The way the manufacturer defines the pressure profile depends on the desired effect of the compression stocking.
