How does the antibacterial toe in mediven thrombexin 18 work?
The anti-microbial properties have been proven to considerably reduce hospital micro-organisms (including Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus) and fungi (Candida albicans) between the toes and at the metatarsophalangeal joints.
The effect is not achieved by simply applying a substance to the stocking, but is rather instilled by a physico-chemical manufacturing process. This guarantees that the bacteriostatic effect is retained, even after multiple washes. Although this unique toe feature supports general hygienic measures, it cannot replace them.
A blind study initiated by medi with a study period of about 18 months showed that there was no increase in the allergy rate. The tests to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 also confirmed the skin tolerability.
