About OFA Bamberg

Memory compression stockings are a stylish and elegant addition to the fashion-conscious woman. With a delicate transparency and a light gloss, they are ideal for those with varicose veins and other vein problems. Memory compression stockings are available in standard sizes but can be custom-made and made-to-measure. These circular-knitted compression stockings have also been given a Red Dot Award for exceptional product design.

Tastefully seductive

The soft shades of Marzipan, Honey and Caramel are ideal for women with lighter skin tones. These natural colours discreetly put your legs in the forefront with their gentle transparency.

The crisp colours of Praline, Nougat and Chocolate are easy on the eye and give your legs an irresistible charm.

The dark shades in the Memory range of colours (Blueberry, Poppy and Licorice) can be worn by anybody and make your legs appear magical.

The Memory colour of Cream is perfect for those who suffer from allergies: These stockings contain no additional colourants and are therefore best suited for those with sensitive skin, and also for brides to be!

 

Optimal Fit

Each measurement in the Memory sizing system – from the tip of the toes to the waist – is the result of detailed research. It is therefore oriented around statistical data regarding real human body sizes. In this way, we guarantee both an optimal fit and highly effective compression.

 

From the product range to individual measurements

Another aim of the Memory sizing system is to care for as many women as possible with our compression stockings. As a result, you don’t have to wait long for compression stockings and you can enjoy Memory stockings as quickly and directly as possible.

If our sizing system does not cater to your specific measurements, getting your stockings made to measure is the ideal solution. They can be adjusted to your individual body shape and therefore fit you perfectly to ensure maximum comfort.

Knee-High Stockings (AD)

The Memory Knee-High stockings go up to just below the knee and are fitted with 5cm wide leg bands, which reliably fix the stockings in place without restriction. The bands contrast visually with the rest of the knitted fabric with their fine rib structure.

 

Thigh-Length Stockings (AG)

The Memory Thigh-Length stockings shine with a slight transparency. The knitted fabric fits to the leg in an optimal fashion; the stocking fits perfectly without restriction – even when bending the knees.

 

Tights (AT)

The Memory Tights have a wide selection of waistbands: the Panty Waistband (AT) is wider and promises maximum comfort without cutting or slipping. The Memory Slip Waistband (AT/S) stands out with its elegant design and refined details, as well as a seamless transition from leg to waistband. The exceptionally flexible knitted fabric of the Memory Tights with Extra Wide Waistband (AT/U) are particularly suitable for the larger waist – these are also ideal when pregnant, for example.

 

The Memory Foot Tips

The open tips in Memory products are a soft and comfortable conclusion to the compression they provide, and offer space for the toes and a secure fit for the stockings. The closed soft tips do not restrict the toes, as the material has been selected in such a way that it is comfortable, smooth and also strong.

Red Dot Design Award 2012

Memory proves that medical efficacy and a pleasant appearance can go hand in hand. In 2012, these elegant compression stockings were given a Red Dot Design Award for their fashionable design and refined details.

The tasteful colors, the lovingly designed details, and the elegant appearance of the Memory product range were able to win over a jury of high-class professionals.

Compression – The Basis for Treatment

Compression treatment is the foundation of every kind of treatment for vein conditions and is also the basis for preventative measures. For healthy legs, this means early support in relief, recovery and care.

In the case of a vein disorder, a vein can expand and not return to normal. This is known as varicose veins and requires long term support through compression. Even after surgery for sclerosis or varicose veinscompression stockings are used to ensure the success of the treatment.

Pressure decreases from the bottom up

Compression stockings exert precisely defined mechanical and external pressure on the enlarged venous vessels and also on the leg. They compress the veins, therefore narrowing the vein diameter, allowing the venous valves to close up again. The blood in the veins can now flow better and faster once more.

Medical compression stockings guarantee correct levels of pressure ​​and a medically dispensed drop in pressure. The pressure of the compression stocking is at its strongest around the ankle and decreases as the stockings move upwards. This speeds up blood flow back to the heart and noticeably improves the blood circulation in the leg.

How to handle Compression Stockings correctly

  • This product is suitable for immediate use. However, we recommend that you wash them before their first use. From then on, they should be hand-washed or washed in the washing machine every day. Please note that if you are using a washing machine, we recommend turning the stockings inside out and using a delicates cycle.
  • Wash the stockings separately with mild detergent but without fabric softener (e.g. Ofa Clean Special Detergent) at a maximum of 40°C and rinse well.
  • The stockings can be carefully tumble dried, but please do not wring them out.
  • The compression stockings can be hung out to dry or can be dried in a gentle drying cycle, but do not hang them out to dry on a radiator, do not iron them, and ensure that they are kept out of direct sunlight.
  • In order to retain the stockings’ efficacy, do not use chemical detergents, bleach, fabric softener or petroleum.
  • Compression stockings are resistant to fat and oil to the greatest extent possible, however they should never come into contact with salves or ointments.
  • Stockings with silicon-coated topbands should not come into contact with solvents, salves, ointments, moisturizers, or body lotions, as their grip and adhesion to the legs may be permanently affected as a result.
  • Store the stockings in a cool dry place, preferably in their original packaging.
