If the word "Confidence" can already be found in the name, then my ears quickly perk up. JOBST® has brought a new flat knit quality onto the market and, thanks to a new knitting technology, would like to create a new wearing comfort. I have tested the JOBST® Confidence for you by thread and stitch.
The first impression: yikes, it's soft!
If you've been wearing compression for over 10 years, you've gotten used to the material. Nevertheless, the side effect is that the skin is stressed by wearing the care every day. So I was all the more astonished at how soft the knitted fabric of the JOBST® Confidence socks felt. Don't worry, it is still stable and exerts pleasant pressure.
"Socks? Don't you usually wear tights? ”You will ask yourself now. Done, at the time of the test, you can initially order calf stockings, thigh stockings and arm rests, but the range is constantly being expanded and you can expect to get JOBST® Confidence tights, Radler or Capri in spring 2022. Your medical supply store can tell you which constellation of a multi-part supply or whether even only a one-part supply makes sense in your case. If the opportunity arises, simply get advice there. You can find a suitable medical supply store for this in the Dealer search.
The second look: what are these little dots doing there?
At first I thought something had gone wrong while knitting, but that's not a knitting mistake at all, it's pure innovation - the Contour-Fit knitting technology! So-called contour points ensure that a particularly snug fit and thus more freedom of movement can be made possible. Will this be my new sports compression garment? The moisture management of the knitted fabric in particular could be worth gold for this! I also like the adhesive tape very much, which gives a fabulous hold thanks to a fine, rubberized thread.
Not only as a leg support, but especially as an arm support, could be a good addition to the range thanks to the comfortable wearing comfort. Many are particularly sensitive to the arms and will be happy to receive some relief.
Who is the JOBST® Confidence suitable for?
The new JOBST supply is suitable for mild and moderate lymphedema and lipedema sufferers.
That leaves you wanting more!
The new JOBST® Confidence makes you want more and I am very much looking forward to the upcoming additions to the range. For me, the new technology is a great and valuable addition to the world of flat knitting and it will certainly be good for many of those affected.
