New 2-Layer ‘Lite’ Bandage System from 3M benefits patients less tolerant of compression
16 March 2011
Indicated for venous ulcers, venous ulcers with an arterial component (‘mixed aetiology’) and lymphoedema, the Coban 2 Lite compression system can be safely applied in selected patients where the ABPI (Ankle: Brachial Pressure Index) is equal to or greater than 0.5.
In a series of case studies, 100% of patients demonstrated wound healing or wound reduction after six weeks of treatment. With good static and dynamic stiffness, the Coban 2 Lite system delivers up to 7 days wear time with minimal bandage slippage. Its low profile enables the wearing of normal footwear, helping to improve patient mobility and quality of life.
