Two-component compression: Concordance, evidence and clinical use

1 January 2014

A patient’s initial experience with compression therapy can positively or negatively affect subsequent opinion of this form of therapy, increasing the importance of not only applying the right kind and level of compression, but also of discussing options with the patient and making them feel involved. Patients are better engaged with treatment planning and execution when they better understand the rationale behind it.

This supplement, including three case studies, explores:

  • The issues that affect patient concordance with compression treatment
  • The key features and innovations in compression systems
  • Practical advice for implementing a treatment pathway for compression
  • How Actico 2C, a two component-inelastic bandaging system, works in practice.
