Abstract

The use of compressive garments for severe burns is usually necessary for a long time. They consist of relatively stiff fabric but very elastic that compresses skin layers in order to flatten them. As the healing of the skin that tends to hypertrophy, the skin is forced to grow up but not by remaining relatively thin. Compression, defined as the pressure applied by a garment on the member burned , depends on a complex interaction between physical properties and manufacture of compressive garment, size and shape of the limb to which it is applied and the wearer’s activity. The compression level is directly proportional to the tension application of the compressive garment and inversely proportional to the size of the member (Laplace’s Law). Thus, there are other factors influenced directly or indirectly to the interface pressure. The change in pressure by muscular activities can have a big effect on the compressed member.
