Gilofa

Compressive travel stockings

 

Gilofa is a must-have product when it comes to travel stockings! Gilofa is almost indistinguishable from conventional cotton stockings. What makes it special is that it provides healthy support for veins and legs. The compressive effect promotes blood circulation and ensures you can healthily live your life.

Gilofa is available in three healthy versions in medical supply stores: there's a natural cotton option, nourishing aloe vera or a breathable microfiber version. A wide range of colours makes Gilofa suitable for everyday use and makes it fit any wardrobe choices you fancy.

Gilofa is for everyone; they are unisex and suitable for every occasion!

 

The popular all-rounder

Gilofa is the most popular product in our range of prophylactic stockings. The classic version is a knee-high pair of stockings made with natural cotton. It is an absolute favourite among our customers. The correct pressure pattern promotes blood circulation in the veins and helps prevent travel thrombosis. The optimum fit is determined by the shoe size and various measurement points on the leg. This allows Gilofa to adapt perfectly to the individual leg measurements.

Gilofa with cotton is opaque and offers maximum support at all times The high cotton content ensures great wearing comfort.

Skincare built in

Gilofa Fine is essentially health and care in one stocking! Dry skin and heavy legs are a common occurrence after a long day. Insufficient blood circulation and a lack of nutrients result in an increased need for moisturization. For this reason, the revitalising Ofa 365 stockings have been developed with moisturizing aloe vera. Skincare is built in! With the help of nanotechnology, the valuable aloe vera extracts are already anchored in the fibres during yarn production and released into the skin in a controlled manner as soon as the stocking comes into contact with it. Additionally, the soothing effect lasts for more than 100 washing cycles!

The medically correct pressure curve promotes blood circulation in the veins and helps prevent travel thrombosis. The optimum fit is determined by the shoe size and various measurement points on the leg. Thus Gilofa adapts perfectly to the individual leg measurements.

Ideal for summer

Summer heat can have a negative effect on circulation. The increase in temperature can mean that the veins need even more support than on days with cooler temperatures. For this reason, Gilofa was developed with particularly fine and light microfibre. The high breathability and rapid moisture transport ensure fresh legs every day during the warmer seasons.

Compressive support that's perfect everyone!

The upright gait of humans is the beginning of all vein problems. While the oxygen-enriched blood reaches the legs almost by itself, returning to the heart is a little more difficult. The veins need to pump the oxygen-poor blood from below back up to the heart. While walking, our calf muscles, among other things, support the veins, squeeze them together and thus push the blood upwards. However, people who stand or sit a lot make their veins' job a lot harder. This can cause the blood to pool in the legs.

Salespeople, field staff, people who travel often, office workers, and many other professional groups will know about this problem all too well. In the evening, their legs are often swollen, tired, and feel heavy. In these cases, it is advisable to take precautions such as wearing support stockings as this helps promote circulation and prevent travel thrombosis.

Thanks to their different designs, Gilofa's compressive vital and travel stockings are ideal for every occasion and different needs. All variations are tailored to fit the individual leg measurements.

  • The stocking exerts controlled pressure on the leg from outside.
  • The blood inside the veins flows better and faster.

The right care for a long product life

  • The product is suitable for immediate use. Our recommendation is to wash the items before the first use. Afterwards, wash daily by hand or by using a gentle cycle in your washing machine with the stockings turned inside-out.
  • Ensure regular foot care and proper footwear.
  • Wash the stockings separately, preferably in a laundry net, as bright colours can bleed out during the first few wash cycles.
  • Wash the stockings separately with mild detergent and without softeners (e.g. Ofa Clean special detergent ) at a maximum temperature of 30° C and rinse thoroughly.
  • The stockings can be spun gently but please do not wring them out after washing them.
  • Air-dry your compression stockings or wash them using a gentle cycle in your washing machine but do not place them on radiators or in direct sunlight and do not iron them.
  • To maintain the functionality of the stockings, please do not use chemical detergents, bleach, benzine, or fabric softener.
  • Support stockings are largely insensitive to fats and oils but should not come into contact with ointments.
  • Store the stockings dry and protected from sun and heat and keep them in their original packaging if possible.
