Compression Hosiery

Making good things even better. Our NEW packaging story


In 2008, Activa Healthcare became part of the international Lohmann & Rauscher (L&R) group and we formally became L&R Medical UK Ltd in 2017. This enabled us to provide a wider range of wound care and compression product solutions, alongside our trusted existing brands, to improve outcomes to the NHS and patients.

We continually strive to innovate the solutions that we provide and make them more accessible and appealing to those that use them. That’s why we’ve decided to transform the look of our entire compression hosiery range and launch our brand new packaging! We’ve developed our new look by talking to you, as clinicians, to perfect our compression solutions to fit your exact needs… Don’t fear, it’s only what’s on the outside that’s changing, our great products that you see today still offer the much loved quality and diversity of our hosiery range that so many people in the UK trust to take care of their legs.

Our new, simple and easily recognisable packaging allows patients and clinicians to effortlessly understand the distinction between our hosiery solutions; hosiery for the prevention of disease progression and maintenance post ulcer healing, and also hosiery for the treatment for venous leg ulcers.


Activa, ActiLymph and Adore for the ongoing prevention and maintenance of venous disease.

Hosiery Kits for the treatment of venous ulceration.

We’d love to hear from you whether you are a clinician, hosiery wearer or both. What do you think of our new packaging, we hope you love it as much as we do!
