Be the first to review this product

PROFORE™ LF is a latex-free formulation, multi-layer compression bandage system. It has been developed in response to a growing concern from customers about the potential danger of latex allergy / hypersensitivity. PROFORE™ LF provides the same effective compression and sustained results as the standard PROFORE Multi-layer Compression Bandage System, but its latex-free formulation allows the healthcare provider to use it with confidence on allergy-sensitive patients. PROFORE™ LF is best used on ankle circumferences greater than 18 cm or 7¼ inches (padded).

Features

Each PROFORE™ LF system pack contains the following:

  • One PROFORE™ LF wound contact layer
  • One PROFORE™ LF #1 padding bandage
  • One PROFORE™ LF #2 light conformable dressing
  • One PROFORE™ LF #3 light compression bandage
  • One PROFORE™ LF #4 flexible cohesive bandage


  • Benefits

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


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


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


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


  • Extended Weartime
  • PROFORE™ LF has sufficient absorptive capacity to manage exudate for up to a full week without the need for reapplication.
  • During the initial phase of therapy you may experience increased wound drainage as the compression system actively manages the edema.
  • If strike through happens, remove the PROFORE™ LF system and apply another.


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


  • Convenient
  • PROFORE™ LF system pack contains everything necessary for the application of effective graduated compression therapy.
  • PROFORE™ LF reduces preparation time, simplifies stock control and ensures that the correct components are always available.


  • Indications

  • PROFORE™ LF Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is indicated for the management of venous leg ulcers and associated conditions.
  • Contraindications
  • PROFORE™ LF should not be used on patients with an Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) of less than 0.8, or on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease.


  • Precautions

  • 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.
  • The risk of arterial as well as venous disease rises with age.


  • Insctructions for Use:

    Caution: Before applying the first bandace, it is important to check the following:
  • Assess the patient to rule out arterial disease. The use of Doppler ultrasound is recommended.
  • Measure the ankle circumference to confirm that it is greater than 18 cm or 7¼ inches (padded).
  • Check if the patient's ankle circumference has changed due to a reduction in edema. Always re-measure after the initial treatment period.
  • Assess the patient's limb for bony prominences or calf fibrosis. Ensure that these are well protected using the PROFORE ™ LF #1 padding bandage.


  • Apply PROFORE ™ LF in the following sequence:

    Step 1
    Wash and dry the leg and apply a moisturizing cream to the unbroken skin

    Step 2
    Apply the PROFORE ™ LF WCL sterile wound contact layer. Remove from the pack with sterile forceps and apply to the wound. Hold in place until covered by by PROFORE ™ LF #1

    Apply from the base of the toes to the knee using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Do not apply tension.

    Step 4
    PROFORE ™ LF #2 light conformable bandage
    Apply from the base of the toes to the knee, over PROFORE ™ LF #1, using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Use tape to secure.

    Step 5
    PROFORE ™ LF #3 ight compression bandage
    Apply from the base of the toes to the knee, using a figure of eight technique at 50% extension. Use the central yellow line as guidance for 50% overlap. Use tape to secure.

    Step 6
    PROFORE ™ LF #4 flexible cohesive bandage
    Apply from toe to knee using a spiral technique with 50% extension and 50% overlap. Press lightly on the bandage to ensure that the bandage adheres to itself. Apply the bandage steeply across the foot to reduce build-up of material over the front of the ankle.
