PROFORE + TENSOPRESS: PROFORE + is a high compression elastic bandage for use as a part of the PROFORE multi-layer compression bandage system, for large limb sizes.

PROFORE + LATEX-FREE: 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.

What are the benefits? 

PROFORE + TENSOPRESS: 

Cotton and elastane construction
Soft surface and neatly finished edges
Flesh colour
Provides controlled and sustained compression.
PROFORE + bandages have a ribbed texture which aids easy application. Its high longitudinal stretch of 170% gives excellent conformability.

 

PROFORE + LATEX FREE: 

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.

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
