Test criteria.

The compression and pressure profiles of textiles in the non-medical sector are measured according to DIN 58133 using the HOSYcan test device.

The sample is clamped into the HOSYcan device and stretched to its given dimensions for girth. Compression and the course of compression are calculated along the entire length of the test sample based on the force measured when stretched to body circumference.
