BACKGROUND Compression bandages appear to be simple medical devices. However, there is a lack of agreement over their classification and confusion over the use of important terms such as elastic, inelastic, and stiffness. OBJECTIVES The objectives were to propose terms to describe both simple and complex compression bandage systems and to offer(More)
— Medical compression bandages are widely used in the treatment of chronic venous disorder. In order to design effective compression bandages, researchers have attempted to describe the interface pressure applied by multi-layer bandages using mathematical models. This paper reports on the work carried out to compare and validate the mathematical models used(More)
Medical compression bandages (MCBs) are widely used to treat venous leg ulcers. Interface pressure measurement devices like PicoPress® transducer are used occasionally to measure the pressure applied by MCBs to train nurses to apply MCBs with the correct pressure profile to patient's leg and for quality assurance purposes. However, most of these(More)
