PROFORE ™ is a multi layer compression bandage system.

Features
Each system pack contains the following:
  • One PROFORE ™ wound contact layer
  • One PROFORE ™ #1 natural padding bandage
  • One PROFORE ™ #2 light conformable dressing
  • One PROFORE ™ #3 light compression bandage
  • One PROFORE ™ #4 flexible cohesive bandage

  • Benefits
  • Effective Compression
  • Proven effective in both hospital and community treatment studies, the PROFORE ™ system is designed to deliver effective pressure.

  • Graduated Compression
  • PROFORE ™ provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf.

  • Sustained Compression
  • Even a full week after application, PROFORE ™ maintains effective levels of compression.

  • ESafety
  • EPROFORE ™ pads bony prominences for protection and through the use of 2 compression layers, compression is built up gradually.

  • Extended Weartime
  • Profore 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.

  • Cost-Effective
  • Weekly dressing changes reduce the nursing time required for the management of venous leg ulcers.
  • Studies have shown that the -layer compression bandage system provides significant savings in cost of care.

  • Convenient
  • 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.

  • Indications
    - The multi-layer compression bandage system has been 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).

    Precautions
    - Do not use on patients with an ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) of less than 0.8, or on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease.
    - Should the patient develop pain or pale, cool or numb extremities distal to the dressing, the bandages should be promptly removed.
    - If the patient has a 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 has components that contain natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
    - The risk of arterial as well as venous disease rises with age.
