At SIGVARIS GROUP we are dedicated to helping people feel their best. Every day. With our high quality and innovative offers we aim to improve health and well being.


160 years of history with compression garments, more than 60 years of expertise in medical compression therapy

As a Swiss company, SIGVARIS GROUP is 100% family-owned since it was founded in 1864 in Winterthur by Moritz Ganzoni-Sträuli and his associate Niklaus Barthelts.  For about 100 years, SIGVARIS GROUP produced “rubber-elastic textiles”, which it sold both in Switzerland and abroad.

From 1958 to 1960, the company collaborated with the phlebologist Dr. Karl Sigg and developed a medical compression stocking to improve venous function and relieve venous-related conditions.

Today, SIGVARIS GROUP is committed to helping people feel their best with high-quality and innovative offerings in medical compression therapy. Every day. Worldwide. Our portfolio caters to a wide range of different needs and indications.

We are close to our customers, having subsidiaries in Germany, Austria, England, Italy, Canada, China, Australia, Mexico and a branch in the United Arab Emirates as well as distributors in more than 70 countries on all continents.

Our currently more that 1600 committed professionals worldwide are dedicated to the well-being of the users of our products – with solutions that support them in all their activities. 

Thinking forward

Our portfolio is built on brands targeting different needs and indications. On the one hand, we want to support patients with venous disorders, lymphedema and lipedema in making their lives as restriction-free as possible. On the other hand, the positive effects of compression therapy in day-to-day life, at work, on long-distance trips and during sports should also be made accessible to a health-conscious public.

As we stay committed to developing relevant medical solutions, we keep innovating so that our health care professional partners can continue to play an integral part in enhancing people’s lives. Thus, we support the sustainable success of their business. 

Continuous development and innovation as well as the consistent commitment to all stakeholders are at the heart of our international growth strategy on the solid foundation of more than 150 years of success.
