Controlled Compression Treatment With a Constant Resting Pressure and High Peak Working Pressure
Paper in proceedings, 2017

Several studies1,2 have pointed out the large variance of the actual pressure distributed when compression bandages are applied in today's health care. In addition, there are many indications that not only the sub-bandage pressure, but also the bandage stiffness during flexion of the underlying muscles to obtain efficient “vein pumping” are essential for an efficient compression treatment of complications related to venous insufficiency.3
