The first layer, an absorptive padding layer, provides padding for bony prominences, distributes compression evenly over the leg and absorbs exudate.

It works with the third and fourth layers elastic compression bandages to effectively minimize edema and increase venous return. A wound contact dressing is included with the system to help maintain a moist wound healing environment and to protect the wound from lint or outside contaminants.
