As you already know, I always talk about prosthetics and amputation. Why? Well probably because this is a big part of my life, and I enjoy sharing it! And since Knit-Rite is the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of innovative prosthetic and orthotic textile products for the last 90+ years, I can relate to this topic.
However, today I would like to introduce you – my two-legged friends – to Knit-Rite’s sister company called Therafirm! One of Knit-Rite’s missions is to improve the lives of those who use our products. That goes far beyond prosthetics and orthotics.
Therafirm is a division of Knit-Rite and a manufacturer of quality compression hosiery and socks. The true gradient compression offered in Therafirm hosiery and socks delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases toward the top of the stocking to promote blood flow, assist in preventing swelling and provide relief for tired and achy legs. Gradient compression hosiery is ideal for anyone who sits or stands for long periods of time, frequently take long flights, pregnant women, or anyone dealing with vein issues or DVT.
Therafirm includes several brands to offer the therapeutic benefits of gradient compression to different markets. Those brands include Preggers, our maternity compression line; Core-Sport and TheraSport, for athletic compression; and GOGO, Ease and CoreSpun, for comfortable and fashionable, easy-to-wear everyday compression.

Another couple Knit-Rite brands that we don’t mention on our blog very often is SmartKnit and SmartKnitKIDS. SmartKnit features a line of diabetic socks, as well as AFO and KAFO socks. SmartKnitKIDS focuses on seamless socks and undergarments for children with sensitivity issues such as sensory processing disorder and autism.
The goal of all the brands is to make the best quality products with the intention of improving lives of those who use our products! Isn’t cool how each brand and every single one of our products helps someone with some sort of medical need.
