How can compression garments benefit your health?

Partner of the LymphNetzwerk

Over 90 years of passion for health. Ofa Bamberg is a leading German manufacturer of medical compression stockings and bandages.

Since the company was founded in 1928, Ofa Bamberg has had a clear claim: maximum comfort and an attractive appearance with optimum effectiveness. In addition to a large selection of modern compression stockings, Ofa Bamberg offers a comprehensive range of orthopedic bandages and orthotics. Preventive health products, including vitality and travel stockings as well as soothing warming pillows, round off the product portfolio.

Know-how and innovative strength have been the company's recipe for success for 90 years. The Ofa developers are constantly working to set new standards for effectiveness, comfort and design. As a pioneer in the use of modern materials such as microfiber, Ofa Bamberg heralded the end of the classic "rubber stocking". And the first medical compression stocking with fashionable lace tape was also an Ofa innovation.

That, for Ofa Bamberg, medical efficacy and good looks are not a contradiction in terms is confirmed not only by satisfied users. The company's products have also received several prestigious design awards.

"Everything began with a boy's dream" (from the book "The Genius of the Stockings" by Enzo Pinelli)

The ingenious intuition of the founder Enzo Pinelli was able to use the manufacturing tradition of the stocking manufacturer in the area around Castel Goffredo in the province of Mantua, where he acquired his know-how.

SOLIDEA has revolutionized the concept of elastic stockings with its collections of fashionable stockings and tights with graduated compression that combine several characteristics:

• the well-being of the legs and the effective prevention of circulatory diseases
• the elegance, suppleness and perfect fit of elegant and exquisite garments
• the sophistication of the wide range of models, patterns and colors.

The quality is also confirmed by the ISO 9001 (2003) and ISO 13485 (2015) certifications.

Calzificio Pinelli S.r.l. is founded in 1976. From 1981 to 1990 stockings and tights were made for some of the most important international designers and luxury brands of Italian fashion. In 1997, Enzo Pinelli created the SOLIDEA brand. He patents and manufactures products with a technological pioneering role, such as shorts with micromassage waves.

since 2001 SOLIDEA also enters the European and overseas markets, with an ever increasing presence, so that the brand is now present in 70 countries around the world, with 15,000 sales outlets only in Europe. In 2004 an innovative system with robots for automatic order processing is put into operation.

2010 a new marketing and communication strategy is beginning that will help SOLIDEA to gain a new market position, with a confirmation of the philosophy of the brand The Charm of Wellbeing, which affirms the combination of health / fashion - the company's core business - and it hit the catwalks of 2014 Milan fashion debuts.

At the same time, SOLIDEA begins a process of approaching art and culture with events, lectures and sponsorship of exhibitions. In 2016, the company celebrates 40 years of activity with a significant presence at the most important event in its region, Mantua City of Culture 2016, and a photo exhibition in the Santa Radegonda Gallery in Piazza Duomo in Milan.
