*DIN SPEC 13257
The new DIN SPEC 13257 specifies requirements for foot dressings in medical foot treatment for single use and defines corresponding test procedures for their compliance in a 16-page paper. The DIN SPEC was developed in workshops according to the so-called PAS method by the company Pedilay Care GmbH. To achieve this, the young company brought Hohenstein on board as textile experts. The product standard is used in both the medical and nursing context of the health care system.
