Profore Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is designed specifically for venous leg ulcers, providing them with the necessary graduated compression without being bedridden during the healing process.
The Smith & Nephew Profore Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is designed specifically for venous leg ulcers, providing them with the necessary graduated compression without being bedridden during the healing process. Proform Compression Bandage allows for the convenience of mobility which is not often an option. Life doesn’t have to stop for a leg ulcer.
The bandage does contain natural rubber latex and should not be used on those who may have allergies or sensitivities to the material. The unique multi-layer system has four distinct layers that all service a unique purpose for the healing of the leg ulcer. The first layer is a contact layer that serves as padding against the wound and absorbs any exudate that comes out during compression and healing.
The second layer is also for absorption and also serves as padding against bony prominences that may damage tissue during compression. The third layer of the Muli-Layer Profore Compression Wrap provides the actual com
Multi-layer high compression bandaging system
Provides effective compression
Sufficient absorptive capacity to manage exudate for up to a full week without needing re-application
proven effective in both hospital and community treatment studies
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.
Safety: PROFORE pads bony prominences for protection and through the use of 2 compression layers, compression is built up gradually.
Extended Wartime: Proform 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 multi-layer compression bandage system provides significant savings in the 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.
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).
Instructions for Use
This information is intended for Healthcare Professionals only.
Only apply PROFORE following training in its application and with knowledge of the use of compression therapy in patients with compromised arterial circulation.
PROFORE is for single use only.
A Step by Step Application Demonstration for the 18-25cm Kit
BEFORE APPLYING THE FIRST BANDAGE It is important to check the following:
Assess the patient thoroughly to ensure that sufficient arterial supply exists to apply compression therapy. The use of Doppler ultrasound is recommended. Ankle : Brachial pressure index (ABPI) should be greater than 0.8.
Measure the ankle circumference to confirm that it is greater than 18cm (padded).
Check if the patient's ankle circumference has changed due to a reduction in oedema. Always re-measure after the initial treatment period and check the bandage selection guide for the correct kit for the size of leg.
Assess the patient's limb for bony prominences or calf fibrosis. Ensure that these are well protected using the PROFORE #1 padding to distribute pressure evenly.
Apply PROFORE in the Following Sequence:
Step 1: PROFORE WCL Sterile Wound Contact Layer
Do not use if pouch is opened or damaged. Remove from the pack with sterile forceps and apply to the wound. Hold in place until covered by PROFORE #1.
Step 2: PROFORE #1 Absorbent Padding Bandage
Bandage the foot using an ankle lock. Apply from the ankle to the knee using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Do not apply tension.
Step 3: PROFORE #2 Light Conformable Bandage
Bandage the foot using an ankle lock. Apply from the ankle to the knee over PROFORE #1, using a simple spiral technique, apply at mid stretch and 50% overlap. Use tape to secure.
Step 4: PROFORE #3 Light Compression Bandage
Bandage the foot using an ankle lock. Apply from the ankle to the knee, using a figure of eight technique at 50% extension. Use the central line as guidance. Use tape to secure.
Step 5: PROFORE #4 Flexible Cohesive Bandage
Bandage the foot using an ankle lock. Apply from ankle 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.
