Men are keen on stylish health.
About every fourth male person suffers from venous problems. Max have been developed for men on the basis of how they look.
Word has got around among frequent flyers that support and compression stockings support the function of veins and are recommended for those who need to sit for long periods of time. But less known is the fact that a medical prescription for compression stockings does not mean that one is condemned to wearing flesh coloured rubber stockings. Men, in particular, often have reservations about wearing compression stockings. This need not be because today compression stockings are no longer distinguishable from other types of stocking.
And more: compression stockings are in fact comfortable to wear because the medical pressure gradation from the bottom of the leg to the top makes the stocking fit comfortably and effectively. Besides the cuff does not pinch the calf.
Comfort and function.
Max combine a discreet appearance with the highest efficacy. consequently, you don’t notice the stocking’s efficacy but you feel it. Thanks to the high cotton content of 50% the stocking for men convince throughout the day because of their wearing comfort, their look and their healthy efficacy.

The tests for harmful substances cover legally banned and regulated substances, chemicals known to be a health risk and parameters for health care.

Ofa Bamberg offers you the best possible quality. The use of skin friendly substances is of course an integral part of our philosophy. Our compression stockings meet the strict guidelines of the eco-label.
we ensure a consistently high quality standard
Since 1991 we have owned one of only 11 measuring systems for compression stockings existing worldwide – the HOSY (Hohensteinsystem) testing equipment for compression products. Ofa was the first German manufacturer to operate the system in house with the aim of conducting regular tests and checks that go beyond the prescribed standard. The equipment tests the compression performance of stockings of any kind or size and is used in product development and quality control.

The right way to wash compression stockings
Don´t dry clean
- Wash inside out!
- Wash before first use!
- If possible, wash every day (max. 40°C), at least every second day
- With commercial mild detergent /particularly suitable for compression stockings is Ofa clean special detergent), don´t use fabric softener
- Rinse well, but don´t rub or wring
- Air dry on a towel or in a tumbler dryer (delicates programme), never iron or dry on a radiator
- Store in dry place, protect against direct sun
- Aviod stockings with silicone coated grip tops being in contact with solvents, creams and moisturising liquid soap, as the adhesiveness can be strongly affected
- Maintain regular foot care and sensible footwear
- Pilling is normal with textiles and no grounds for complaint
- Never repair stockings yourself but return the damaged stocking to the specialist dealer the stocking was bought from
The slip-in, slip-out system does not make putting on compression stockings and pantyhose an early morning feat of skill but allows you to slip into the stocking and day with speed and ease.
