Compression bandages are specially designed to apply pressure, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling. Compression bandages are a simple non-invasive treatment for varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency and lymph edema. The treatment compresses superficial veins to promote the flow of blood through the body veins. The main objective is to design pressure sensing bandage using suitable method and to measure different level of pressure intensity. Compression bandages come in a variety of sizes, length, and colors. They are also available with different strengths of compression. Stockings and compression bandages with successive sensors are available in the market but there provide least comfort and hence make them difficult to be worn. Further, these sensors often have contact with skin which makes them undesirable. In order to overcome this level we have to design the bandages with using compressed air concepts. The main objective is to design pressure sensing fabric using suitable method and to measure different level of pressure. These different readings of pressure will be sent through wireless Bluetooth device which connects the patients' device to the concerned.
