A gripping new idea

SoftFit technology is a unique system of silicone yarns, knitted into the top band of the garment. SoftFit provides more gentle, seamless friction on the skin which means there is no cuttting in and less slipping down, even when moving about.

SofitFit is less bulky and smoother making it more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable to wear. Increased patient acceptance is more likely to lead to more consistent wear times and therefore, optimum treatment outcomes. SoftFit top band option is available for knee high and armsleeve garments and is ideal for patients with mild to moderate oedema.
