Here you will find an overview of all the features.

Confidence in textiles:
All compression garments and compression pantyhose (round knit and flat knit), anti-embolism stockings and supports are regularly tested to OEKO-TEX Standard 100 for human ecological harmful substances and assessed. The awarding of the certificate OEKO-TEX Standard 100 guarantees tested quality that safeguards your health.

Compression garments

Features of the compression garments

Clima Fresh:
The integrated Clima Fresh function has an odour-inhibiting effect. This is achieved via special thread technology or via special processing during the production process. These have an antibacterial effect and thus inhibit odour-forming bacteria within the fabric.

Clima Comfort*:
Clima Comfort ensures that the garment is comfortable to wear. Modern fibre technology wicks moisture away from the skin’s surface quickly and ensures a high level of breathability.
*Scientifically tested by French institute IFTH. The test results show that Clima Comfort technology from medi assures climate control between the skin and the stocking. With 11/12 points, medi achieved an outstanding overall score.

Perfect Fit:
Perfect Fit guarantees a very precise fit – it ensures that the medically effective pressure gradient fits perfectly and provides optimal conditions for care in both standard and made-to-measure versions.

Double Ellipses:
The double ellipse is located on either side of the elbow and offers freedom of movement and comfort in daily wear. The innovative fabric in the ellipses reduces the feeling of tightness during flexion and extension of the elbow. Due to the ellipse at the elbow crease, the garment encourages the lymphatic flow. Wrinkles are kept to a minimum and this ensures optimum comfort.

Juxtaposed Band-System:
The Juxtaposed Band System ensures the optimal fit of all circaid products. The individually adjustable bands can be adapted to meet the different needs and can be easily readjusted if required. Thanks to the high-quality Velcro® fasteners, the products are extremely durable.

Easy handling:
After specialised instruction, patients can easily put on and take off their circaid products themselves – an advantage for compliance with therapy. Patients are actively involved in their therapy and can once again choose how they want to live their lives. 

Inelastic:
Giraffes have venous pressures of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles, three times more than humans. However, giraffes do not suffer from lymphoedema or venous disorders. The answer is the skin: giraffe skin is inelastic, meaning it does not stretch. Thus, giraffes are not susceptible to lymphoedema or venous diseases even though they may be on their feet 24 hours a day. circaid has incorporated this concept into its products creating solutions for an increased patient compliance and a better quality of life.

Dermatologically tested:

Supports & braces

Features of supports & braces

Clima Fresh:
The integrated Clima Fresh function has an antibacterial action and prevents the formation of odours. Bacteria are kept away from the knit and the fibre-deep hygiene is maintained.

Clima Comfort:
The elaborately worked knit ensures that skin stays comfortable and dry. Moisture is quickly and reliably absorbed on the inside and transported to the outside to evaporate. At the same time, the active breathing structure of the material guarantees the necessary supply of oxygen.
The result: Patients do not break into a sweat when wearing their supports and they find them comfortable to wear – even in summer.

Comfort Zone:
Thanks to special Comfort Zones in the sensitive flexor areas (e.g. the arm bend or back of the knee), medi supports always provide a comfortable fit. Comfort Zones are areas that are characterized by their especially soft and elastic knitted fabric. This allows medi supports to adapt very well to body movements without cutting into the bends of the joints. This increases the wearing comfort, both during physical activity and when sitting for longer periods. The result: soothing pain relief that simply makes you feel good.

medi Airtex⁺:
The medi Airtex+ material unites compression with the new functional features Smart Temp and Fresh Tech.The knit with the new materials provides thermoregulation and an antibacterial effect. It moulds itself to the knee and stays dimensionally stable, even during movements. The precise compression has proprioceptive actions and helps the body stabilise itself. It also helps reduce swelling and haematomas.
