PROFORE* Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System
PROFORE* Multi-layer Compression Bandage System provides sustained, graduated compression therapy for the effective management of venous leg ulcers.
• System contains a wound contact layer, natural padding layer, light conformable dressing layer, light compression layer, and a flexible cohesive layer
• Provides graduated compression
• Can be worn up to seven days
• Reduces preparation time
PROFORE* 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 7(1/4)" (padded).
Do not use on patients with an ankle-brachial index (ABI) 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.

Apply from the base of the toes to the knee, over PROFORE* #1, using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Use tape to secure.
PROFORE* #3 light 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.
PROFORE* #4 flexible cohesive bandage
