Jobst was founded in 1950 in Toledo, OH by Conrad Jobst. A brilliant mechanical engineer and inventor, Mr. Jobst held more than 40 patents for such disparate items as an automatic brush making machine and the automobile sunroof. He also suffered from venous insufficiency, and the blood pooling in his legs caused him pain and discomfort. While swimming in a pool, he realized that the hydrostatic pressure of the water relieved the discomfort of his vascular disease. He went to work designing a garment that would replicate that pressure, and the first elastic stocking designed specifically to increase blood circulation was born. The company that Conrad Jobst founded to mass produce his elastic stockings, has grown to become the #1 physician recommended brand of compression stockings in the United States.
