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.
The product provides a low, safe resting pressure and a high, effective working pressure. This enhances the calf muscle's pumping function, hence improving the venous return and ejection fraction. The system can also be used on patients with mixed ulcers due to the low resting pressure.
The underlying bandage Lundatex® medical provides a safe and well-defined resting pressure of 20 mmHg. The PressPatch™ adheres to the bandage material without adding pressure in the resting position. However, when the patient is standing or walking, the PressPatches™ creates a stiff layer, providing high effective working pressure between 45-60 mmHg.
FixPatch™ is used to close the system in the front, and is developed for the maintenance of pressure over time. This is easily done before bed rise every morning, simply by opening up and closing the FixPatch™ in the front. By opening the front, the surrounding PressPatches™ adapt to the changes in limb size, hence they provide a consistent pressure also over time.
Pilot study with Prof. Giovanni Mosti, Lucca, Italy 2016
Ejection fraction from the lower leg is severely impaired in patients with venous insufficiency and is improved by compression therapy. Inelastic compression is characterized by a high difference between resting and standing pressure and a strong massaging effect on the calf muscle, produced during movement.
Ejection fraction was measured by means of strain gauge plethysmography in 18 patients with severe venous reflux in the great saphenous vein. The procedure was performed three times in a randomized sequence: 1) in baseline conditions, 2) with the elastic bandage applied to the leg with a pressure of 20 mmHg, and 3) after attaching the PressPatches™ to the elastic bandage.
