An absorbent, non-woven, sub-bandage wadding comprising a blend of viscose and polyester. Latex-free.
Used to reduce the effect of compression bandages and orthopaedic casting materials on the skin. May also be used to reshape the leg around the calf or ankle, to ensure correct pressures are achieved when applying four-layer compression, and to protect the bony prominences. It is the first layer of the K-Four multilayer compression bandage system for venous leg ulcers.
Compression bandage systems are not recommended for patients with arterial disease (ABPI <0.8).
