Test criteria

The compression and pressure profile of compression textiles in the non-medical sector are measured using the HOSYcan test device according to DIN 58133. In order to ascertain compression of an item, it is clamped into the HOSYcan device and stretched to its given dimensions for girth. Compression and the course of compression are calculated along the entire length of the test sample based on the force values measured when it is stretched to body circumference.
