Airopress: Innovative Compression Bandage System

In collaboration with the University of Bolton, Baltex has developed Airopress, an innovative single-layer 3D knitted spacer compression bandage system. Designed to replace current multi-layer bandage systems, Airopress offers several key advantages:

Long-Lasting Compression

Airopress excels in providing long-lasting therapeutic compression, without being as bulky, uncomfortable, and difficult to apply as traditional multi-layer bandages.

Superior Breathability

The unique knitted spacer construction allows for greater breathability, making application easier for healthcare professionals and ensuring more comfortable treatment for patients.

User-Friendly Application

With its single-layer design, Airopress is simple to apply compared to multi-layer bandage systems, streamlining the process for medical staff.

Airopress represents a significant advancement in compression bandage technology, offering improved patient comfort, enhanced breathability, and a user-friendly application process for healthcare providers.
