“Today’s compression gear provides critical health, performance, and appearance benefits to consumers,” says Florian Girmond who heads Hohenstein’s Department of Consumer Tests and will present the webinar. “Whether the compression garment is intended to treat a medical condition, provide an athletic benefit, or simply improve body shape, our technology helps product designers understand and verify exactly how their garments work.”
Hohenstein’s scanning technology provides a measurable profile that shows the exact location and amount of compression exerted across the body and the shaping effects that compression provides. The resulting data are used to ensure best garment design, to optimize sizing, and to document compression performance for medical device applications, other certifications, and marketing claims.
In addition to state-of-the-art body imaging technology, Hohenstein’s capabilities extend to a comprehensive range of tests and certifications required across compression gear markets from therapeutic hosiery to high performance athletic apparel.
Hohenstein experts consult with clients to define the ideal testing program then coordinate across Hohenstein departments to execute the plan in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner. A testing program can include assessments for skin sensitivity, wicking and thermal insulation properties.
