MEDICA 2018 is the leading international medical trade fair where thousands of companies from all over the world can showcase their medical inventions and innovations. Conferences, forums and special events are held throughout all four days of the fair.
For three days, PressCise AB worked with Dr. Prof. Hugo Partsch and Dr. Prof. Giovanni Mosti in Lucca, Italy. A clinical trial was performed with the aim of investigating the differences in increase of ejection fraction on patients with venous insufficiency, by the use of PressCise elastic compression bandages and PressPatch™, the newest device with high stiffness. The method used was strain gauge plethysmography.
Today, you can read about PressCise in BT (Borås newspaper) and why we decided to move to Herrljunga recently.

In May 2014, a comparative study to Keller et.al 2009 was performed with PressCise, showing that 21 nurses with different working experience all where able to achieve the target pressure using PressCise products. ”The results show that for each 95% confidence interval, independent of state and position, we get at most 5 mmHg from the target pressure 50 mmHg”
