Jobst: Dedicated to Compression Stockings
Wednesday, 30 September 2015

Since then, Jobst’s commitment to helping those with venous conditions has never wavered.
The History of Jobst
Jobst was founded by Conrad Jobst, an inventor and engineer, after he discovered that the gradient water pressure when standing in a swimming pool massively helped with his chronic venous insufficiency. He transferred this effect into elastic stockings with great results.
After his death, Conrad’s wife Caroline Jobst grew the business massively. She expanded their product ranges, including ready-to-wear vascular stockings, consumer support stockings and anti-embolism stockings.
