<jats:p>&lt;p&gt;Severe forms of chronic venous insufficiency and lymphedema require strong compression-pressure, which exceeds the pressure exerted by medical compression stockings (&amp;gt;40 mmHg). The aim was to investigate if patients are able to apply a Velcro-band compression device (Circaid Juxta Lite™) themselves with sufficient pressure. Thirty-one patients (CEAP C6=23, C5=5, C3=2, mixed ulcer=1) applied Juxta Lite™ on their own legs after a short instruction and were asked to readjust the pressure by their subjective feeling.
