  • Causa
    The manufacturer has identified that during printing an operator error occurred where the foil used as the primary packaging for coban 2 lite shows "coban 2" as the product name. the compression bandage, the outer carton packaging, the corresponding instructions for use as well as the colour coding (green for coban 2 lite) is correct. if coban 2 lite is used by mistake for a patient requiring regular compression, the compression efficacy might not be sufficient. this would be noticed by the health care provider and corrected with the next bandage change.
