Your patients count on you to help reduce the pain and discomfort caused by VLUs. It’s possible when you employ best practices in compression therapy, skin and wound care to aid in their healing process.
Compression therapy is considered the gold standard of care for managing lower extremity oedema and venous ulceration1.
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 Two-Layer Compression System provides a comfortable, rigid sleeve that consistently delivers the right amount of compression to reduce oedema.
Patients can wear normal clothing and shoes because the patented interlocking materials are designed to reduce the potential for uncomfortable slipping or bunching. Coban 2 compression system is much less bulky compared to 4 layer compression systems.
Coban 2 compression system(PDF, 8.97MB) is designed to reduce application variability for consistent compression every time.

Compression therapy is known to significantly increase venous leg ulcer healing rates and reduce the risk of recurrence.3,4 However compression therapy remains underused. To drive deeper understanding and wider adoption of compression therapy, an international group of experts in leg ulcers and venous disease developed a simplified approach presented as an ABC of the management of VLUs.
In a study of patients whose venous leg ulcers had not responded to conventional compression bandaging, Coban 2 Compression System was found to achieve faster reduction in oedema, pain, and exudation with each clinic assessment than traditional multi-layer compression systems. Seventy-five percent of patients reduced their ulcer surface area between 30-40% within the four week trial period.5
