Easy handling
1. Ease of use

  • The support is particularly simple to apply with its cleverly positioned hand loops and improved elasticity of the new comfort knit.

2. Anatomically formed

  • Anatomically pre-formed and highly elastic, offering full compressive action and stability.

3. Easy to remove

  • The support can be release with a single finger (due to the new triangular tab).

4. Soft material

  • Soft towelling material on the inside of the fastener for added comfort.

5. Continuous adjustment

  • The fastener can be adjusted easily throughout the day if necessary, to suit your abdominal contour. The edges "flex out" comfortably – especially when sitting (to stop it pressing into or chafing the skin).

Patient Guide

Back pain is very common in the UK and often causes employees to take time off work as sick leave. Whether it’s lower back pain, osteoarthritis of the facet joints, intervertebral disc prolapse or lumbago – back pain can affect men and women of all ages.

Knee pain is also very common. The knee is the largest joint in the human body and is often affected by injuries or degenerative changes. The causes of knee pain can range widely.

In many cases, soft supports can help to relieve and stabilise the affected part of the body, ease pain and encourage the healing process. Of course, preventative strengthening exercises does your body a favour in the long run. You will find a series of strengthening exercises for both the back and knee in the specific section of this website, which can be done conveniently at home.

medi's comfort knit combines innovative and proven fibre technologies. The fabric is more breathable, softer to the touch and, above all, even more comfortable on the skin – while still retaining the same compressive action to support your muscles and joints. Comfort and ease of use equals successful treatment therapy.

Rediscover real comfort

Comfort Zone

Comfort ZoneComfort Zone

medi supports have soft zones in the sensitive flexor areas and ensure that the support fits comfortably, even when worn for longer periods of time. The new comfort zone is even softer, even sheerer and even more elastic – for more comfort in wear you can feel!

Clima Fresh

Clima FreshClima Fresh

The integrated Clima Fresh function has an antibacterial action and prevents the formation of odours. The material keeps bacteria away from the knit and maintains fibre-deep hygiene.

Clima Comfort

Clima ComfortClima Comfort

Our time-proven Clima Comfort technology has been improved further still thanks to the very latest materials. Moisture is transported outwards quickly and reliably. At the same time, the high breathability improves the air circulation– for a pleasant microclimate all year round.

Fit and elasticity

The new comfort knit is marked by its particularly high elasticity and anatomical fit, because: both longitudinal and transverse elasticity have been considerably increased– while retaining its full compressive effect and stability. So the knit moulds itself even more snugly to the body's anatomy. 

Fibre technology

medi's comfort knit combines new and time-proven fibre technologies. The high-tech fibre together with the new natural eucalyptus fibre ensures optimised moisture management. What's more, the knit is tangibly softer and, above all, more comfortable to wear on the skin.
