Urgo Medical


Multicomponent compression bandage system that combines elastic and inelastic components. Designed to provide sustained graduated compression for up to 7 days. The first-layer, K-Tech, is a short-stretch (inelastic) bandage that delivers stiffness, absorbency and 80% of the pressure. The second-layer, K-Press, is an elastic, cohesive bandage that keeps the system in place and provides additional compression to achieve therapeutic pressure. The combined effect is designed to provide continuous, consistent and comfortable compression, both when active and at rest.
