Interface pressures with compression depend on many factors relating to the science of measurement and intrinsic, patient-related factors, including limb size and tissue texture. While it is important for manufacturers of compression devices to measure pressures, it may not always be relevant to clinical practice where application methods and oedematous limbs may affect final pressures. Accurate performance of any compression system relies on the use of the right technology for the right condition and patient lifestyle. Correct application following training and in accordance with instructions for use may be adapted according to individual patient comfort and needs, including mobility, tissue texture and the stage of management. In order to provide treatment regimens that are safe, effective and well tolerated by patients, as well as being easy to apply and demonstrate sound economic practice, science needs to meet clinical practice. Patient reporting is an important for successful treatment, matching clinical effectiveness with patient acceptance during reassessment and monitoring.
