ALTIFORM - SUPERIOR COMPRESSION HOSIERY
SET TO BOOST PHARMACY PROFITS


Altimed Ltd has launched its radically superior compression hosiery product ALTIFORM, with a pricing structure set to bring a smile to pharmacists and swell their profits.

David Feeney, Technical Sales Manager for Altimed says: “ALTIFORM is technically superior providing much more consistent levels of graduated compression. It is also much easier to stretch and softer to wear making for easy application and greater comfort.”

“ALTIFORM is available on FP10 and has been priced to give pharmacists a significant margin. When they do their sums they’ll see the financial sense it makes to select ALTIFORM as their first choice for compression hosiery. Their customers will be delighted and will be thanking them too.”

BACTERIOSTATIC
ALTIFORM is a revolutionary fabric with advanced properties. It contains Meryl® SkinlifE fibres with an exclusive bacteriostatic agent which inhibits bacterial growth in the fabric, maintains a natural balance on the skin regardless of activity level, and controls odour. As the agent is bound to the polymer, and not deposited on the fabric's surface, it doesn't migrate from fabric to skin (avoiding induction of allergy). ALTIFORM’s bacteriostatic properties outperform those of competing products, remaining consistent after more than 30 washes, or, to the end of the garment's life.

EASY STRETCH
The days of wrestling to fit compression hosiery are over! ALTIFORM’S's use of advanced Lycra fibres give it exceptional stretch. It takes less effort to stretch ALTIFORM garments than traditional compression hosiery, making them much more easy to slip on over the heel and ankle. ALTIFORM is available in three classes of compression.

COMFORT BY DESIGN
ALTIFORM's unique elasticated toe and heel design and technically advanced fibres offer the wearer exceptional comfort. The fibres are soft, extremely light yet have the elasticity to fit over a range of individual shapes and lengths ensuring consistent compression.
