The medical device manufacturer medi presented rollouts and tried-and-tested product concepts in the fields of phlebology, orthopaedics, prosthetics and footcare at the EXPOLIFE INTERNATIONAL trade fair in Kassel.


New prospects for the healthcare sector.

Effective compression therapy with plenty of comfort – medi Phlebology and Lymphology

medi presented new products in the flat knit range for the treatment of oedema. mediven 500 legwear has been fitted out with an optimised 3D panty top for more comfort in wear and an improved heel for a wrinkle-free fit over the instep since May 2015. The new trend colours "cashmere", "moss green" and "cherry-red" have also been available for all flat knit models (apart from mediven sensoo) since May. All the mediven 550 Leg colours can also be combined with the new design elements "pyramids", "stars" and "ribs".

medi presented mediven comfort, a particularly soft compression stocking for treating the veins. The extra benefit: it is easier to put on and take off. The comfort panty top forms the silhouette and the double-knitted sole ensures a soft and comfy feeling when walking. The lanolin in the knit cares for the skin and is still in the fabric even after 100 washes.

Stabilisation and regeneration – medi Orthopaedics

The orthopaedics division presented the modular ankle orthosis Levamed stabili-tri. The orthosis guarantees the required stability during treatment and supports the healing process in three stages. The orthosis was awarded the iF DESIGN AWARD in the category "Medicine / Healthcare" in February 2015.

More freedom and a better quality of life – medi Prosthetics

medi is breaking fresh ground in prosthetic patient management with the medi 4Seal TF silicone liner. Under the motto "Freedom for those special moments in life", medi presents the strengths of the silicone liner for passive vacuum care: these include ease of donning and doffing, more comfort in wear and simple cleaning.

Stability with every step – medi shoes

medi's back-friendly shoes round off the spectrum of patient care and are also suitable for prosthesis wearers. The airy Summer Blue is medi's first open shoe for the summer season. It has a removable neoprene insole, is splash-resistant and gently cushions the foot. With the practical EL lacing rapid binding system, it can be closed with only one hand. It can be opened quickly and simply by pressing a button.

Activating the muscles of the feet – medi Footcare

At EXPOLIFE INTERNATIONAL, medi's Footcare division presented the new igli Active Light, the slender carbon insole for sports and leisure shoes. The carbon bar supports the arch of the foot. The prosthetist/orthotist positions the posts to match the patient's progress. These correct the architecture of the foot and activate the muscles. With its thin structure, the igli Active Light also fits in slim width ladies shoes or sneakers.

Miriam Schmitt, Head of Company Communications at medi: "Modern medical devices combine function and design. medi proved this at the 2015 EXPOLIFE INTERNATIONAL with their compression garments, supports, orthoses, modular prosthetic components and insoles. Besides the reliable medical effect, we offer users the additional benefit of visually appealing and comfortable medical devices. This is a great fillip for successful treatment, because patients are happy to wear their medical device. medi also continually optimises tried-and-tested products. This is why EXPOLIFE INTERNATIONAL is such an important platform for dialogue with medical retailers. We are looking forward to meeting the visitors and to an intensive exchange of views and ideas.
