The bandage material is highly elastic, and is provided with longitudinal markings for correct overlap and transverse markings for correct amount of material for each turn around the leg. The markings function as a guide for how the bandage should be applied. If the markings are followed, the bandage provides a precise pressure, with a standard deviation of 2 mmHg from the target pressure.
The bandage provides a lighter compression and can be used as support, for example, after treatment of muscle injuries to increase the venous circulation at minor varices (varicose veins), or postoperatively.
The bandage is made of breathable and skin-friendly materials, and is free from natural latex rubber.
