Airopress 3D Knitted Spacer Compression Bandage

In cooperation with the University of Bolton, Baltex has developed, Airopress, a novel single-layer 3D Knitted Spacer Compression Bandage System intended to replace current multi-level bandage systems.

Airopress excels in its function of providing long-lasting compression without being as bulky, as uncomfortable, and as difficult to apply as other multi-layer bandage systems.

3D Spacer Technology makes excellent air circulation, sustained compression, and equal and uniform pressure distribution possible, thus eliminating the need for additional bandages such as a padding bandage. This reduces the bulk, weight and complication of applying it.

Baltex is passionate about the development of medical technologies to improve patient care and make medical professionals’ work easier and safer. We are extremely proud of our single-layer bandage system because of the advantages it has over existing multi-layer systems.

Thorough testing and quality control ensures that Airopress will always meet your standards. Our research and development teams are constantly working to push the boundaries of medical textiles for the benefit of patients and health providers.


Key benefits 

- The single-layer 3D system combines a number of excellent traits; breathability, weight distribution and supreme comfort:

- Inherent cushioning and optimal pressure distribution

- Sustained graduated pressure eliminating the necessity of frequent reapplication (40-50mm Hg at the ankle and 11-18 mm Hg just below the knee).

- Level of predictable compression keeps patients comfortable

- Excellent pressure profile and compression strength

- Soft and comfortable

- Non-fraying to avoid damage to bandage

- High Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate

- 400 gm/m2 and 2.7mm thickness means that it is easy to store and transport


Bandages for use in compression therapy

Compression therapy treats venous insufficiencies by applying external pressure. In order to achieve the level of compression necessary to counteract conditions such as venous leg ulcers, bandages need to fulfil the following criteria:

- Good resilience. Baltex products are always made with a focus on quality and durability.

- Compression and stability. Even and firm pressure that will ensure clotting.

- Retention of the graduated pressure. 

- Desirable pressure profile. 


Airopress fulfils all of the above criteria. On top of that, it offers further added benefits owing to the yarns used in its production and its textile construction. The careful construction of this single-layer system is the product of several years of development and testing.
