    Giraffes are amazing. Did you know that giraffe’s feet are the size of a dinner plate?

    • And did you know that the distance from their legs to their heart is twice that of humans, requiring much higher blood pressure, thereby putting way more stress on the veins? Scientists at 3M figured out that the giraffe’s thick and tight skin which prevents the stagnation of blood in their lower extremities functions like natures’ best compression bandage. This inspired them to develop 3M™ Coban™ 2, a leading two-layer compression system that mimics the skin of a giraffe. It’s bringing relief to millions of people who suffer from uncontrolled high pressure in the veins of the lower leg.

      Scientists are amazing, too.
