Norwegian term or phrase: karstrikker
From a document which compares different medical products.

I am assuming something like 'vein knitter' but I haven't found an exact match yet.

sortimenter av karstrikker både med silikon og bomull, i ulike breder, lengder of farger. Strikkene har god elastisitet.

strikkene er runde, i stedet for ovale, da den runde utforming kan medføre at man kan få en enda mindra flate på strikken når man strammer strikken ...
