An innovative cohesive bandage that delivers a precise pressure
“I feel so good! No itching, no heaviness, no swelling with a tightness feeling. The skin on the leg is soft and smooth - not flaky and dry anymore! When I compare traditional compression products with Lundatex® medical bandage, the difference is like 'night and day.'"

The Lundatex® medical cohesive is an elastic bandage with a cohesive coating to help prevent bandage slippage. The bandage is especially suitable for persons with an active lifestyle.
The cohesive bandage has the same markings as the non-cohesive Lundatex® medical: longitudinal markings for correct overlap and transverse markings for correct amount of material for each turn around the leg. The markings function as a guide for how the bandage should be applied. If the markings are followed, the bandage provides a precise pressure, with a standard deviation of 2mmHg from the target pressure.
The Lundatex® medical cohesive bandage provides compression that can be used for the following conditions or circumstances:
- Venous insufficiency - Venous leg ulcers
- Oedema - Mixed leg ulcers
- Lymphoedema - Varicose veins
- Deep vein thrombosis - Direct trauma to the limb, such as from
- Post-thrombotic syndrome sport-related injuries
Compression level – 20 mmHg
The bandage provides a lighter compression and can be used as support, for example, after treatment of muscle injuries to increase the venous circulation at minor varices (varicose veins), or postoperatively.
The bandage is made of breathable and skin-friendly materials, and is free from natural latex rubber.
