Solutions for Managing Chronic Edema and Venous Leg Ulcers

  • Compression Systems

    3M™ Coban™ 2 Layer Compression System is designed to reduce application variability for consistent compression every time.

    Compression therapy is considered the standard of care for managing lower extremity edema and venous ulceration.

    3M advanced the science of compression therapy by creating materials engineered to deliver Intelligent Compression Dynamics to provide comfortable, therapeutic compression for the management of venous leg ulcers. 3M™ Coban™ 2 Layer Compression System provides a comfortable, rigid sleeve that consistently delivers the right amount of compression to reduce edema.

    Patients can wear normal clothing and shoes because the patented interlocking materials are designed to reduce the potential for uncomfortable slipping or bunching. 3M™ Coban™ 2 Layer Compression System is much less bulky compared to 4 layer compression systems.

    3M™ Coban™ 2 Layer Compression System is designed to reduce application variability for consistent compression every time.
