Description

Compression treatment for chronic venous diseases is associated with a wide range of challenges and often produces uncertain clinical outcomes. Investigating and exploiting the performance of compression bandage would further improve the knowledge of compression management and would give a holistic picture of this promising area. This book discusses the fundamentals of compression therapy i.e. compression or pressure through multi-disciplinary approaches involving various concepts of physics, biological science, biomaterials, fabric engineering, structural dynamics, material science, technical textiles and instrumentation to better deal with compression bandaging from different perspectives.

Table of Contents

Introduction to compression therapy; Characterization of compression bandage; Interface pressure; Compression under static state; Compression under dynamic state; Assessment of dynamic stiffness index; Material and construction parameters; Dynamic assessment of sub-bandage pressure profile; Modeling of interface pressure profile generated over time.
