More Information

  • Benefits:
    Effective compression
    It is proven to be effective in both hospitals and community treatment studies
    - This system is designed to deliver the effective pressure
    Graduated compression
    - It provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf
    Sustained compression
    - Even a full week after application, it maintains effective levels of compression
    - Profore pads bony prominences for protection and through the use of 2 compression layers, compression is built up gradually
    Extended wear-time
    - It has sufficient absorptive capacity to manage exudates up to a full week without the need of reapplication
    - The initial applications of Profore may have to be changed every 3 to 4 days, when drainage is high
    Cost effective
    Weekly dressing changes reduce the nursing time required for the management of venous leg ulcers
    - Studies have shown that the multi-layer compression bandaging system provides significant savings in cost of care
    This system pack contains everything for the application of effective graduated compression therapy
    - It reduce preparation time, simplifies stock control and ensures that the correct components are always available
  • Precautions
    - The bandage should be promptly removed when the patient develops pain or pale
    - If the patient has very thin ankle or very prominent tibial crest, extra padding should be applied to these areas to prevent pressure necrosis
    - Failure to detect significantly reduced arterial flow can result in pressure necrosis, amputation or even death
    - This product contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals
    - Do not use on patients with an Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) of less than 0.8
    - Also not be used on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease
