February 2017 | Say it with flowers!

The new Memory fashion colours 2017 sound like a lovely bouquet of flowers.

Blowball
The bright shade of grey radiates lightness when combined with a pink­coloured or white balloon dress but also goes superbly with clothes for everyday wear. Additionally, the early­summer colour is suited for strong contrasts. Incidentally: Blowball and pastel go hand in hand this spring.

Hibiscus
Inspired by one of the most luxurious flower varie­ties, you radiate with Hibiscus a vivacious personality and a zest for life. Make a fash­ion statement with a grey oversized­pull­over and trendy sneakers. Also a cream­coloured A­line dress and bright half­boots are the ideal complement to this vivid fashionable colour.

Dahlia
The dark shade of red conjures up a sense of mystique and is reminiscent of indulgence and seduction. Not only shade­ in­shade combinations but also grey, brown or dark green weave their magic perfectly round this warm­hearted colour shade. With leather shorts, knitted dress or velvet jacket in subdued colours you also provide attractive moments.

Ivy
Whether business outfit or casual look, Ivy lends your wardrobe a natural look. The fashion colour for autumn harmonises with warm colour shades, such as light brown or dark red. Ivy has a particularly elegant effect in combination with black pleated skirt or pine­green sheath dress. With a beige coloured trench coat Ivy is set to become the autumn combination of the year!

September 2016 | New Dynamics Plus Epicondylitis Support

New Dynamics Plus Epicondylitis Support by Ofa Bamberg

Combats the cause of tennis and golfer's elbow

Commonly known as tennis arm, the painful inflammation of the tendon insertion at the elbow does not affect only the racket swinging sportsperson. Epicondylitis can also occur through keyboarding or manual craft work. The cause is always excessive strain put on the muscle insertion at the epicondyle, triggered by constant shocks and vibrations in the muscles of the forearm.

The Plus Pad of the new Dynamics Plus Epicondylitis Support provides active relief: as vibration compensator at the forearm it absorbs vibrations, reduces stimuli transmission to the epicondyle and thus aids the healing process of the inflammation.

April 2016 | Lastofa Forte wins the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016

Innovation in comfort and appearance convinces the Red-Dot-Jury

The flat- knitted medical compression stockings Lastofa Forte with Merino wool from Ofa Bamberg were awarded the Red Dot Award. Around 5,200 entries from 57 nations had been received for the international design prize. Lastofa Forte could on account of its innovative character set itself clearly apart from other entries and thus convince the jury in the category product design. Following the award received in 2012 for the elegant compression line Memory, it has now for the first time been flat-knitted compression stockings from Ofa Bamberg that have won the coveted design prize.

For the complex and protracted treatment of edema, scars and burns with flat-knitted medical compression stockings Ofa Bamberg with Lastofa Forte offers an innovative product in comfort and appearance. A fusion of high-tech and naturalness combines for the first time the finest microfibers and refined Merino wool in a compression stocking. Although thinner than a human hair, Merino fibres are at the same time robust and pleasantly soft. Air cushions on the inside allow the skin to breathe. They cool in summer and warm in winter.

Besides paying close attention to medical efficacy and high comfort, Ofa Bamberg during product development placed special emphasis on the appearance of the flat-knitted compression stockings. The colour range focuses on six soft colour shades from snow and sand to lava and naturalness. Due to an ingenious idea Lastofa Forte has been turned into a fashionable eye-catcher: instead of concealing the longitudinal seam necessitated by the technical requirements of flat-knitted production, it is embellished by an elegant decorative seam. For edema patients the stockings are a daily companion and sufferers desire a flat-knitted care product you need not conceal. The decorative seam transforms Lastofa Forte into a trendy and glamorous accessory which patients wear with pleasure and confidence. “, reports marketing head Carola Essig. These details also convinced the jury of 41 experts. The independent panel judged in a rigorous but fair manner each entry on the basis of criteria, such as innovativeness, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. Professor Dr Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the Red Dot Awards, in his address spoke the following words of recognition, “ The Red Dot winners achieve and clearly demonstrate not only outstanding creative quality but also show that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions. “

March 2016 | Two further awards for Dynamics Plus

Knee support from Ofa Bamberg wins the Good Design Award and If Design Award

Knee support from Ofa Bamberg wins the Good Design Award and If Design Award

The Dynamics Plus knee support has again won awards for its outstanding product design: the Good Design Award 2015 and the If Design Award 2016. Ofa Bamberg are delighted at receiving to date a total of five awards for products in its Premium Orthopedic Support range, Dynamics Plus. And as a company, the medical aids manufacturer was also nominated for its brand management for the German Brand award.

For its functional extras, which fuse harmoniously with the design, the Dynamics Plus knee support already received the Red Dot Award 2014 and the German Design Award 2016 with Special Mention. These are now followed by further internationally renowned prizes: the American Good Design Award, claimed by their own account to be the oldest design competition in the world, as well as the If Design Award.

The Dynamics Plus knee support due to its organic honeycomb structure aims to break with the traditional aesthetic standards of medical products. Similarly, the product developers wanted to set new standards in the product’s functionality – with the specially formed Plus pad for a reinforced massaging effect and with its unique comfort zone. Its patented Arthroflex knitted fabric in the comfort zone consists of two wafer-thin layers that move in opposite directions and thus minimize wrinkling in the hollow of the knee. This technology is a distinguishing characteristic of all orthopedic supports within the Dynamics Plus range, including the elbow support, which in 2015 received the Red Dot Award.

In 2016 Ofa Bamberg as a whole now also has the opportunity to win an award – with the nomination for the German Brand Award. The Committee for Design and the German Brand Institute have invited the company because of its brand management to compete in the category “Industry Excellence in Branding”.

May 2015 | Ofa Bamberg takes over NEA International, Maastricht

Dr Hartwig Frinke (Managing Director Ofa Bamberg) and Rob Müller (Director of NEA International) in Maastricht.

    Following the recent acquisition of a further production facility in Glauchau (Saxony), Ofa Bamberg, the Franconian manufacturer of medical compression stockings, support stockings and orthopedic supports, has now taken over NEA International B.V. in Maastricht. NEA is developer and manufacturer of the high-quality orthopedic supports and orthoses PUSH range and of the PSB line in orthopedic sports supports, and belonged to the Dutch Macintosh Retail Group.

    PUSH products are sold world-wide in 30 countries. Since the early nineties Ofa Bamberg has distributed and sold the PUSH range exclusively in Germany and Austria and has since that time been the most important partner of the Dutch company.

    Ofa Bamberg’s Managing Director Dr Hartwig Frinke: “We are happy that our efforts to take over this innovative company with the potential for considerable development have in the end been crowned with success”. Moreover, he described the take-over as a “logical step in the close cooperation over decades between our companies, which at the same time is the starting signal for our joint project into a most successful future.”

    May 2015 | Our Gilofa Range is growing - The new Gilofa Travel

    Long-distance flights or long car and train rides can become a burden for the legs. After sitting for hours and too less movement, the blood flow will be handicapped. This may even increase the risk of thrombosis. Now we add another type of the great travel stockings with additional advantages to our popular Gilofa line: Gilofa Travel – the elegant sporty travel socks.
    Our new Gilofa Travel will suit well for business and vacation travelers and fit perfectly for business and leisure wear. Gilofa Travel is available in black and blue and according to the calf circumference (S-XL) in 4 foot lengths.

    For further information visit the product site: Gilofa Travel or contact us.

    April 2015 | Dynamics Plus: Repeatedly honoured with the Red Dot Award

    The small red dot is a seal of quality that specialists as well as consumers are familiar with. Beside the excellent design, the first class material consistence and the functionality are also taken into consideration. Only the best product reaches the finish line.

    Our Memory was the first medical compression stocking to obtain the „red dot design award“ in 2012.

    In addition our Dynamics Plus knee support received, even in the year of introduction, the red dot design award for the outstanding quality of its design.

    We are now pleased to announce that another product of our Dynamics Plus line, our Dynamics Plus elbow support, was able to convince the critical jury and bring the prestigious prize to Bamberg once again in 2015.

    Dynamics Plus Elbow Support - Unique comfort and a precise effect

    The Plus for function, quality and design – this goal guided the development of the Dynamics Plus Elbow Support.

    The result: an orthopaedic support with unequalled wearing comfort. For the first time an extensive Arthroflex® comfort zone has been integrated into the sensitive area of the crook of the arm. The patented special knitted fabric is extra stretchable and fits closely like a second skin.

    Moreover, the product offers an innovative double act with its multi-functional Plus pads. Integrated on the outside and the inside of the forearm they relieve the entheses at the elbow through targeted pressure. Their soft naps provide a gentle massage, while the silicone material absorbs irritations that occur in the forearm as a result of finger movements. The innovative features are enclosed by an organic design that breaks with conventional models associated with medical products. Based on cells and honeycombs it connects form and function and discreetly caresses the anatomy.

    April 2011 | The new compression range

    Memory – the new compression range for the fashion conscious
    New insights ranging from toe to grip top have led us to rework and perfect the fine quality products Memory and Memory Aloe Vera.
    The new Memory compression stockings offer a wide range of benefits: softer wearing comfort, putting on and taking off stockings simplified and last but not least a stylish appearance. The many wonderful details make your compression stockings a natural daily companion and help turn your therapy into a permanent success.

    A natural fit.
    As the latest studies have shown, the body size of the population has changed in the past few years. The reworked and extended Memory size chart is based on our knowledge of these current trends. The new size chart thus guarantees an optimal fit and is a further building block in the success of your therapy.

    Soft velvety wearing comfort
    Soft velvety, skin friendly functional yarns ensure wearing comfort while worn. The unique soft toe allows the toes to move freely. The heel is knitted to adapt to the foot’s anatomical shape and at the same time wrinkling across the instep is prevented.
    Extensive wear tests have shown that the compression of the new Memory is felt to a considerably less extent- but has the same medical effect.

    Impressively beautiful
    Memory is in appearance hardly distinguishable from full-fashioned stockings.
    Due to invisible reinforced heel and toe Memory looks elegant in any shoe. The delicate sheen and light transparency of Memory make legs attractive and eye-catching!
    Lively colours and stylish grip tops make this fashion range a delight.

    June 2010 | Ofa Bamberg has a new website

    Appealing, informative, well-arranged and comprehensive - this is how the Franconian manufacturer of medical compression stockings will from now on present themselves on the Internet.

    "The pages are valuable for both those with experience and those without experience of the stockings market”, thus the project manager. “They show a cross section of years of OFA Bamberg competence in the field of compression stockings.” Features, such as the vein check and a most comprehensive range of medical background knowledge, add pages of totally new content.

    On the new product pages that provide an in-depth report on product features and design, users will be able to get with the help of detailed pictures an exact idea of toes, heels, knitted fabrics, borders, and much more.

    An additional new feature of the homepage is the product finder. It helps the user to find the right stockings based on personal requirements and criteria. Should the user, for example, be looking for a particular colour, the product finder will then only select those designs and brands available in this colour. Questions often asked can be directly clarified under the heading FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). Background knowledge of stockings – ranging from their manufacture to tips on how to put on the stockings and care instructions to an explanation of the difference between support and compression stockings is provided and discussed. The user gains a detailed and interesting insight into compression therapy and preventive health care.

    We hope that you will find your way round our new website and trust you will have an interesting time discovering the new content found in these pages.

    01.01.2009 | Intelligent packing for individual made-to-measure products

    As of September 2009 individually produced compression stockings from the Franconian manufacturer of compression stockings OFA Bamberg leave the company in a completely new packaging (insert) design. Appealing and functional at the same time, the new package is easier to use by the specialist shop and the customer.

    Your advantages in brief:

    •Your personal stocking pass the size of a cheque card - simply pull off and stick together
    •Washing instructinos for medical compression stockings - compact as practical sticker for your washing machine.
