Abstract

Medical compression bandages (MCBs) are widely used to treat venous leg ulcers. Interface pressure measurement devices like PicoPress® transducer are used occasionally to train nurses to apply MCBs with the correct pressure profile to patient's leg. However, no evaluation of the static characteristic of PicoPress® transducer has been found in the literature. Similarly, no assessment of the reliability and accuracy of the measurement devices, which are currently used by researchers to study the interface pressure, has been found in the literature. This paper reports on the static characteristics and reliability of PicoPress transducer for subbandage interface pressure measurement.
