Knee stocking (AD)

The knee-high stocking is fitted with a soft top band. This prevents the stocking from cutting into the hollow of the knee.

Tights (AT)

The plus/minus body belt of the tights is knitted longer in the back than in the front. This means that the gusset adapts to the shape of the body and doesn't exert pressure on the sensitive abdominal area.

Thigh stocking (AG)

The skin-friendly thigh stocking from Lastofa Cotton is suitable for women and men and is usually fitted with an adhesive tape. 

Thigh stocking with waistband attachment (AG/T)

The hip fastenings on both sides can be closed with the attached belt. In the front, they can be fixed with a velcro fastener, which is a suitable alternative to the adhesive tape on the thigh stocking. The attachment can be worn on the left, right or on both sides.

Single leg trousers (AT/E)*

The single leg trousers are equipped with a leg extension for an optimal fit and secure the compression stocking to the leg – without silicone or latex.

Men's trousers with cross or lengthwise slots in the body belt (AT/H)*

For easy handling in everyday life, these tights for men can be equipped with a cross or lengthwise slot in the body belt, slightly offset to the side.

Comfortable and skin-friendly

Lastofa Cotton offers a wide range of options as well as soft tops and adhesive tapes that hold the stocking in place in any situation.

State-of-the-art technology and our many years of experience go into every stocking. High wearing comfort and medical effectiveness are our top priorities. That is why Lastofa Cotton is equipped with many features.

 

Knitted fabric

The knitted fabric of Lastofa Cotton is especially suitable for patients with sensitive skin or allergies. Thanks to the special thread wrapping, the high cotton content of 23 percent in the sock lies directly on the skin – for a pleasant feeling when worn.

 

Cuffs

The Lastofa Cotton stocking cuffs with contrasting border used in the knee or thigh stockings are characterized by a special soft knitted fabric. There is no compression on this cuff, so it allows an almost seamless transition to the skin.

 

Pendulum heel

The anatomically shaped pendulum heel is equipped with reinforced material in the vulnerable heel area – ensuring a perfect and stable fit. It also provides protection when the compression stocking is worn in shoes.

Adhesive tapes for every preference

Whether plain and unobtrusive or elegant in lace design: Lastofa adhesive tapes perfectly complement the stocking according to your individual taste.

 

Lace adhesive tape

The semi-transparent lace adhesive tape is the first choice for all those looking for a stylish look and pleasant wearing comfort. However, thanks to cross reinforcement it is still robust. The silicone, applied in strips, provides a reliable hold on the leg and allows the skin to breathe.

Fleur nub adhesive tape

The adhesive tape impresses with its jacquard design and at the same time offers excellent air permeability – also suitable for sensitive skin. The flat knobs are hardly noticeable as the silicone is only applied selectively. The soft material also ensures a pleasant grip.

Nubbed adhesive tape

Because of its good air permeability, it is ideal for people with sensitive skin. The skin can breathe easily because the silicone is not applied continuously. The flat knobs hardly touch the skin. At the same time, the soft material ensures a pleasant grip.

Rubber adhesive tape

The rubber adhesive tape is particularly suitable for people who attach great importance to strong grip or have a silicone intolerance. It is only applied selectively and allows the skin to breathe sufficiently. Thanks to a special reinforced section, it cannot fold over.

Compression – the basis of treatment

Compression therapy is the basis of every vein treatment and the foundation of preventive measures. For a healthy leg, early support means relief, recovery and care.

In the case of venous disorders, compression therapy is the "heart" of every treatment. Once a vein (varicose vein) has dilated, it will never recede and requires permanent support through compression. Compression stockings are also used after sclerotherapy or varicose vein operations to ensure the success of the treatment.

Pressure decreases from bottom to top

Compression stockings exert precisely defined mechanical pressure on the dilated venous vessels and the leg from the outside. They compress the veins, thus narrowing the vein diameter, and the venous valves close again. The blood in the veins can now flow better and faster again.

Medical compression stockings guarantee correct pressure levels and a medically controlled drop in pressure. The pressure of the compression stocking is strongest at the ankle and decreases towards the top. This accelerates the venous blood return to the heart and the blood circulation in the leg is noticeably improved.

How to use compression stockings correctly

  • The product is suitable for immediate use. Our recommendation: Wash before first use. Afterwards, wash daily by hand or turned inside out in the gentle cycle of your washing machine.
  • Wash the stockings separately with mild detergent without softener (e.g. Ofa Clean special detergent ) at a maximum temperature of 40° C and rinse thoroughly.
  • You can use a gentle tumble dry cycle, but please do not wring the stockings out.
  • Dry your compression stockings by air or in the gentle cycle of your dryer, but do not place them on the radiator or in direct sunlight or iron them.
  • To maintain the effectiveness of the stockings, please do not use chemical detergents, bleach, petrol or fabric softeners.
  • Compression stockings are largely resistant to fats and oils, but should not come into contact with ointments.
  • Stockings with silicone-coated adhesive tapes should generally not come into contact with solvents, ointments, re-greasing washing lotions and body lotions. Otherwise their adhesive properties may be permanently impaired.
  • Store the stockings in a dry place, protected from sun and heat, preferably in their original packaging.
