ive never had coban 3 but I would think that is the compression on its own or the stocking on its own but not together but as I sai im not sure
Is it safe to apply coban 3 bandaging over a compressi... - LSN
Have you been advised to self-bandage by your lymphoedema clinic? I do not think Coban 3 would be of any benefit in addition to a compression garment, unless it was just for a 'quick fix'. Do you feel that the compression garment isn't quite strong enough? You may need a higher compression or a different product - worth discussing with your clinic.
Does the Coban 3 (I have never used it - just Coban2) need to be cut off or does it peel off?
Please get advice first.
Hi – response from 3M Health Care: We are answering the question assuming that Nelbat is wanting to use 3M Coban 2 Compression System, with compression stockings (as we are not aware that a Coban 3 product exists). Our response is that Coban 2 compression systems has been trialled to demonstrate that the compression offered from the bandages (alone), when applied twice weekly, offers effective compression and achieves fluid loss. The unique nature of Coban 2 compression systems, requires the first foam layer, to be applied directly to the skin, to achieve minimum slippage and optimum pressures. We do not advocate the use of both Coban 2 compression system bandages and compression stockings, being used at the same time, on the same limb.
