Abstract:

The paper presents a procedure for designing compressive garments (CG) with a pre-set value of unit pressure exerted on the human body, such as are used in the compressive therapy of hypertropic scars (HS). The garment dimensions were determined in a free state, in dependence on the values of the body parts’ circumferences and the assumed value of unit pressure. The procedure is based on a developed dependency which considers the Laplace law, and on the garment’s mechanical characteristics in the form of a non-linear function of force vs. elongation. The procedure for designing compressive garments as elaborated was verified with the use of a special measuring stand designed to estimate the compression exerted by stocking products.
