Hohenstein to host webinar on compression clothing

Hohenstein Institute to offer the webinar on "Getting the pressure right. Compression testing" in German on 19.11.2014 at 14.00 hrs (CET) explains how manufacturers and retailers can attract the growing target market for compression clothing in the life sciences sector. The webinar will be held in English on 20.11.2014 at 16.00 hrs (CET). The Hohenstein Institute will be introducing its testing and quality control of compression hosiery.

It will also present the new quality label "Compression and pressure profile" which companies can use to differentiate themselves from the competition. This is an important move in making the most of every opportunity for higher sales and more success in the light of the growing popularity of compression textiles in the non-medical sector.

During compression testing, the Hohenstein Institute puts the stated compressive effect of textiles to the test on the test bench, to find out to what extent the products actually apply the stated pressure.

Subsequently, the tested quality is monitored in regular control testing. The compression and pressure profile of a textile are tested along the entire length of the test sample. The test uses the HOSY test system that has been specially developed by the Hohenstein Institute.
HOSY is the only test device recognised by the Gütezeichengemeinschaft Medizinische Kompressionsstrümpfe e.V. (quality mark association for medical compression hosiery) for determining the compressive effect of medical textiles.

The device enables non-destructive measurement of virtually all dimensions and sizes of a textile. The test confirms the compressive effect stated by the manufacturer. The method of measurement is the same as the test method that is used in the medical sector. The only differences in the test requirements for the life sciences sector may be a wider range and somewhat greater flexibility in design.

The quality label "Compression and pressure profile" which can be used to endorse successfully tested textiles serves as an important guide, giving consumers and retailers the confidence of knowing that the compressive effect claimed by the manufacturer has been independently and objectively confirmed.
