Profore is a multi-layer high compression bandage system specifically designed for the management of venous leg ulcers and associated conditions. The system pack can be used on patients with ankle circumferences of greater than 18cm or 7¼ inches (padded).
Proven effective in both hospital and community treatment studies, the Profore system is designed to deliver effective pressure. Profore provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf.
Even a full week after application, Profore maintains effective levels of compression. Profore pads bony prominences for protection and through the use of 2 compression layers, compression is built up gradually. It has sufficient absorptive capacity to manage exudate for up to a full week without needing re-application.
The initial applications of Profore may have to be changed every 3 to 4 days, when drainage is high. Weekly dressing changes reduce the nursing time required for the management of venous leg ulcers. Studies have shown that the multi-layer compression bandage system provides significant savings in cost of care.
Profore system pack contains everything necessary for the application of effective graduated compression therapy. Profore reduces preparation time, simplifies stock control and ensures that the correct components are always available.
Each system pack contains the following:
* One Profore wound contact layer
