Flat knit compression for maintenance therapy
Securing treatment success in the long term
Flat knit compression has many uses
Flat knit compression products are primarily used during maintenance therapy in cases of lymphoedema, lipoedema or severe vein problems with a tendency for oedema. For custom-made products and individual full-body solutions, flat knit compression is the benchmark. In addition to compression stockings, compression tights and compression sleeves, more complex shapes like compression gauntlets and compression foot-toe-portions as well as head and thorax products can be made using the flat knit process.
How flat knit compression works
Thanks to the short-stretch properties of the knitted fabric, flat knit compression combines several positive features: the low resting pressure makes donning and doffing easier, whereas the high working pressure ensures increased compression during active movement.
