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).
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
Proven effective in both hospital and community treatment studies, the PROFORE LF system is designed to deliver effective pressure.
PROFORE LF provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf.
Even a full week after application, PROFORE? LF maintains effective levels of compression.
PROFORE LF pads bony prominences for protection and through the use of 2 compression layers, compression is built up gradually.
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.
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 cost of care.
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.
PROFORE LF Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is indicated for the management of venous leg ulcers and associated conditions.
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.
