Compression testing

Whether you make medical or non-medical compression products, the Hohenstein Institute can carry out independent testing of the compression that is claimed for your textiles. In that way you can be sure that your product meets the relevant requirements and the desired quality. We test medical compression textiles for compliance with, or on the basis of RAL-GZ 387, Parts 1 and 2, using our own specially developed test device called HOSY (Hohenstein System). The Hohenstein experts test non-medical textiles on the basis of the DIN 58133 standard, which defines the requirements for medical compression stockings and the procedures for testing them.
