lastofa forte

The flat knitted medical compression with merino wool


Lastofa Forte is our new, flat knitted compression quality. It consists of – for compression indispensable – synthetic fibres and skin friendly merino wool. Merino wool is a natural high performance fibre. It cools in summer and warms in winter and allows the skin to breathe due to natural air cushions. The fibres of the merino wool are very robust and feel pleasantly soft on the skin on account of their particularly fine structure.


  • leg segments made to measure in compression classes 1 to 4
  • knee-high stockings also available as standard version (3 sizes) in compression class 2 and 3
  • 6 colours for made to measure and two colours as standard version



Lastofa Forte is our new flat knitted compression quality. It consists of a high percentage of skin friendly merino wool and also of high-grade modern function yarn. For example, the microfibre lies in the case of this stocking directly on the skin and ensures enhanced wearing comfort – guaranteed no scratching.


Our flat knitted highlight

Merino wool is a natural high performance fibre. It cools in summer, warms in winter and allows the skin to breathe due to natural air cushions. On account of its self-cleaning function it is also odour resistant. The fibres of the merino wool are very robust but are at the same time agreeably gentle to the skin on account of their particularly fine structure.

Lastofa Forte Made to measure

We place maximum value on details to give your patients pleasant wearing comfort. For example, the toes are very fine and sensitive. The seams require our special attention here. The foot part and the individual toes of our Lastofa Forte are knitted on the machines and then closed with a seam each.

To make do without any further seams, the toes are applied to the foot part entirely manual. The individual stitches are connected with needle and thread. This way, finely processed care without additional seams results – a great bonus for outstanding wearing comfort.


Also available as standard

We offer a knee-high stockings in standard design for slight symptoms or "usual" body sizes in the lower leg area. It is available with an open toe and a silicone grip top with 3 or 5 cm.

Our products are produced after the highest quality standards. For more details please click here.

The right way to wash compression stockings

  • Wash before first use.
  • Please do not wash inside out!
  • If possible, wash every day (max. 40°C), at least every second day.
  • With commercial mild detergent (particularly suitable for compression stockings is Ofa clean special detergent), don´t use fabric softener.
  • Rinse well, but don´t rub or wring.
  • Air dry on a towel or in a tumbler dryer (delicates programme), never iron or dry on a radiator.
  • Store in a dry place, protect against direct sun.
  • Avoid stockings with silicone coated grip tops being in contact with solvents, creams and moisturising soap, as the adhesiveness can be badly affected.
  • Maintain regular foot care and sensible footwear.
  • Pilling is normal with textiles and no grounds for complaint.
  • Never repair stockings yourself but return the damaged stocking to the specialist dealer the stocking was bought from.
