JOBST: Pioneers of Compression Garments

27 January 2021

In 1950 Ohio, USA, a man named Conrad Jobst founded the JOBST company. Using his expertise in mechanical engineering and his own personal experience of venous disease, he developed gradient compression garments for managing swelling and chronic venous insufficiency. Since then, the company has continued to strive for outstanding compression therapy treatment.

Humble Beginnings

Conrad Jobst discovered the value of gradient pressure in treating venous conditions when he realised standing in a swimming pool made a difference to his own symptoms. After successfully producing elastic stockings that would achieve the same effect, he founded the JOBST company so he could share his amazing treatment with the world.
