Certified quality

Juzo’s medical aids  are knitted reliably. That means that our patients can trust in the consistently high and meticulously checked quality of our products.  

Juzo’s compression products are manufactured almost exclusively in Germany and in the US. Only top-quality materials are used that are subject to the strictest quality standards.  

As a founding member of the Quality Mark Association for Medical Compression Hosiery (Gütezeichengemeinschaft Medizinische Kompressionsstrümpfe e.V.), Juzo played an important role in defining the special quality requirements for products used in compression therapy. These requirements are part of the RAL Standard today and a basic requirement for inclusion in the catalogue of medical devices. In 1998, Juzo was one of the first enterprises in the sector to introduce a general quality management system. Yearly audits carried out by the certification body confirm the consistently high quality standard at Juzo.


Knitted reliably

Juzo is entitled to feature the following quality seals:

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate

Oeko-Tex is a globally standardised, independent auditing and certification system for textile raw, semi-finished and finished products of all process levels. The more intensive the skin contact of a product, the stricter the requirements regarding its safety for humans and the environment it must fulfil. Juzo circular and flat-knit compression fabrics are Oeko-Tex standard 100 certified. Juzo can therefore ensure that all components of a product are safe for humans and the environment and do not pose a health hazard. The requirements of the Oeko-Tex standard 100 are significantly stricter than existing national legislation.
