Perfect fit and highly effective compression

According to recent research findings, humans are becoming bigger and stronger. Size charts should be able to adapt to this. That is why Lastofa has now implemented a sizing system which is based on real body measurements informed by reliable statistics.

Lastofa is available as a range in six sizes from I to VI. Thanks to the variety of features, Lastofa fulfils numerous individual requirements – even as part of their series range!

New Lastofa and  Memory now use identical sizes.

 

From the range to customisation

If your measurements deviate from the sizing system, bespoke products are the ideal solution for you. Individually customised to meet your requirements, these compression stockings have an optimal fit and make for comfortable wearing.

 

Comfort for everyone

  • 6 updated sizes from the range
  • 2 foot lengths for both open and closed toe options
  • further designs for AG stockings possible
  • 2 body section widths
  • available in compression classes 1 and 2

The all-rounder

Whether it’s a simple knee stocking, thigh stocking, or maternity tights during pregnancy, Lastofa offers many possibilities. Thanks to its sizing system and the various different features, you can always find the right stocking.

  • Knee stocking (AD): The extra-soft cuff of this classic compression stocking in knee-length ensures a comfortable feel at the hollow of the knee.
  • Thigh stocking (AG): Thigh compression stockings usually include bands with adhesive qualities to ensure a perfect fit and to prevent the stockings from sliding down.
  • Tights (AT): The special plus/minus body section of the tights for women guarantees an ideal fit. With a cut which is longer at the back and shorter at the front, the gusset adapts to the anatomy of the body.

Smart details

The Lastofa quality also makes a lasting impression thanks to its selection of particularly comfortable knitted toe sections. Lastofa stockings can be worn with both open and closed-toe sections.

The open-toe version is now also available in two foot lengths.

One for all – Lastofa offers a variety of details

We integrate modern technologies and our wealth of experience in creating Lastofa products. The proven classic has now been developed further. High comfort and medical efficacy are our highest priority, which is why Lastofa is equipped with many highlights:

Lastofa comfort zones

When sitting down for long periods such as while at a desk, for example, folds at the hollow of the knee or around the foot can become annoying and push into the skin. The new Lastofa comfort zones are particularly comfortable to prevent this and ensure a perfect fit.

Additional padding at the ball and the heel of the foot

The sensitive areas at the ball and the heel of the foot in particular experience stress throughout daily life. Special padding at the foot optimises durability.

Two foot lengths – even for the open-toe versions

Lastofa offers two different foot lengths and a comfortable comfort cuff for an optimal fit of the open toe section, making it suitable for all, whether they have a shorter or longer foot.

Optimised body section

The standard body section is not only visually more appealing, but it also offers a better fit and more dimensional stability. 
Pregnant women or patients with a larger abdominal girth prefer the extra-wide body section.

 

Stronger bands for stronger support

Whether it’s a casual look or an elegant lace design, the Lastofa bands give the stocking a perfect finish to suit all tastes and styles. At the same time, some bands are more suitable for soft connective tissue while others provide a secure grip for firmer connective tissue:

 

 

Silicone tape Casual

A new addition for women and men in a timeless design. The horizontal padding and the silicone applied in stripes ensure a firm and secure grip. Convenient gaps ensure optimal breathability of the skin.

 

Nubbed adhesive tape

This classic is perfectly suited for people with sensitive skin. The flat nubs are hardly noticeable and allow the skin to breathe. The soft material ensures a comfortable grip.

This is also available as the ‘Strong’ version with particularly strong lateral stability. It is particularly suitable for people with very soft connective tissue and large thigh circumferences.

 

Fleur nub adhesive tape

A adhesive tape in a stylish jacquard look with ideal air permeability, which is also ideal for sensitive skin. The silicone has been applied selectively. The soft material ensures a comfortable grip at the same time.

 

Rubber adhesive tape

Particularly well suited for people who care the most about a strong grip or who have an intolerance to silicone. It does not roll down thanks to special horizontal padding.

Compression – the basis of the treatment

Compression therapy is the foundation of every vein treatment and the basis of preventive measures. Early support means relief, recovery, and care.

In cases of venous diseases, compression therapy is the core of every treatment. Once a vein is enlarged (varicose vein), it will not recede and requires ongoing support through compression. Even after atrophy or venous surgery, compression stockings are used to ensure successful treatment.

 

Pressure decreases from the bottom upwards

Compression stockings apply accurately defined mechanical pressure on the enlarged venous vessels and the leg from the outside. They squeeze the veins together, thereby decreasing the veins’ diameter, and close the venous valves again. The blood in the veins can now flow in an improved and faster manner.

Medical compression stockings guarantee correct amounts of pressure as well as medically dosed drops in pressure. Around the ankle, the pressure of the compression stocking is the highest and it decreases towards the top. This accelerates the venous blood return to the heart and the blood circulation in the leg noticeably improves.

The right care for compression stockings

  • The product is suitable for immediate use. We recommend that you wash it before wearing it for the first time. After this, wash it daily, either by hand or using a gentle cycle on your washing machine. Ensure that the item is placed in the washing machine inside out.
  • Wash the stockings separately with a mild detergent without softener (such as  Ofa Clean special detergent ) at a maximum temperature of 40°C and rinse them well.
  • The stockings can be spun gently, but please do not wring them out.
  • Air-dry your compression stockings or dry them using a gentle cycle of your tumble dryer, but do not place them on a radiator or in direct sunlight and please do not iron them.
  • To maintain the stockings’ effectiveness, please do not use any chemical cleaning agents, bleach, petrol, or fabric softener.
  • Compression stockings are largely resistant to fats and oils but contact with any ointments should be avoided.
  • Stockings with silicone-coated bands should generally not come into contact with solvents, ointments, moisturising body wash, or body lotions. Their adhesive qualities can otherwise be permanently impaired.
  • Store the stockings in a dry place and protect them from direct sunlight and heat. If possible, store them in their original packaging.
