Medical compression bandages are widely used in the treatment of chronic venous disorder. In order to design effective compression bandages, researchers have attempted to describe the interface pressure applied by these bandages using mathematical models. This paper reports on the work carried out to derive the mathematical model used to describe the interface pressure applied by single-layer bandage using two different approaches. The first assumes that the bandage thickness is negligible, whereas the second model includes the bandage thickness. The estimated pressures using the two formulae are then compared, simulated over a 3D representation of a real leg and validated experimentally. Both theoretical and experimental results have shown that taking bandage thickness into consideration while estimating the pressures applied by a medical compression bandage will result in more accurate estimation. However, the additional accuracy is clinically insignificant.
