3M Coban 2 Compression System

3M Coban 2 Compression System

Two thin layers provide the stiffness required to generate sustained working pressures/low resting pressures to reduce oedema/prevent venous reflux without the bulk of traditional bandages. The interlocking layers cohere to each other, creating an inelastic sleeve that conforms to the limb and reduces the potential for bandage slippage and discomfort.
