More Information

  • Contents:
    Wound contact layer - helps protect the wound site and help wick away exudate into the absorbent padding
    - #1 absorbent padding bandage - helps absorb exudate and helps protect bony prominences
    - #2 light conformable bandage - helps absorb exudate and helps prepare and sculpt the leg for the application of the pressure layers
    - #4 cohesive compression bandage - helps maintain continuous compression and keeps the system in place for up to a full week
  • Benefits:
    Effective compression
    - It is designed to deliver effective compression to successfully manage "mixed" aetiology leg ulcers
    - It may be used to manage venous ulcers in patients with ABPI between 0.6 and 0.8 who cannot tolerate full compression
    Graduated compression
    - It provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf to help improve upward blood flow
    Sustained compression
    - Even a full week after application, it maintains effective levels of compression
    - It helps ensure that bony prominences are padded for protection
    - The multi-layer system means that compression is built-up gradually minimizing the danger for application layer
    Extended wear-time
    - It has sufficient absorptive capacity to manage exudates up to a full week without the need of reapplication
    - During the initial phase of therapy you may experience wound drainage as the compression system actively manages edema
    - If strike through happens, remove the Profore Lite system and apply another
    Cost effective
    - Weekly dressing changes reduce the nursing time and helps reduce costs associated with management of venous leg ulcers
    - This system pack contains everything for the application of effective, sustained, graduated compression therapy
    - It reduce preparation time, simplifies stock control and ensures that the correct components are always available
  • Contradictions:
    - This should not be used on patients with an Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) of less than 0.6
    - Also not to be used on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease
  • Precautions:
    - The bandage should be promptly removed when the patient develops pain or pale
    - Patients with low ABPI and symptoms of arterial disease should be seen by a vascular specialist before application of compression
    - Care should be taken that very thin, bony, legs with prominent tibial crest should be protected with extra padding
    - The pressure under the bandage could harm unpadded skin
    - Compression bandage to a leg which has partially blocked blood supply could completely stop flow of blood into leg and lead to the death of skin
    - This product contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals
