Benefits


Effective Compression

The PROFORE Lite system is designed to deliver effective compression to successfully manage “mixed” aetiology leg ulcers. It may also be used to manage venous ulcers in patients with ABPIs between 0.6 and 0.8 who cannot tolerate the full compression of standard PROFORE or PROFORE LF.



Graduated Compression

PROFORE Lite provides higher pressure at the ankle, with decreasing pressure exhibited at the calf to help improve upward blood flow.



Sustained Compression

For up to a full week after application, the PROFORE Lite system maintains effective levels of compression.



Safety

The PROFORE Lite system helps ensure that bony prominences are padded for protection. The multi-layer system means that compression is built up gradually, thus minimizing the danger of application error.



Extended Weartime

PROFORE Lite 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 Lite system and apply another.



Cost-Effective

Weekly dressing changes reduce nursing time and therefore help reduce costs associated with the management of venous leg ulcers.



Convenient

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



Indications


PROFORE Lite Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is indicated for the management of "mixed" aetiology leg ulcers, where assessment has identified that the patient has some degree of arterial impairment which prevents the use of full compression (ABPI < 0.6).

SKU I-66000771
Weight (Shipping) 1.0000
Specifications Contraindications PROFORE◊ Lite should not be used on patients with an Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) of less than 0.6, 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. Patients with a low ABPI and symptoms of arterial disease should be seen by a vascular specialist before application of compression. Care should be taken that very thin, bony, legs or legs with a prominent tibial crest should be protected with extra padding. The pressure under the bandage could bruise and harm unprotected / unpadded skin especially over bony parts of the leg. Compression bandaging to a leg which already has a partially blocked blood supply could completely stop the flow of blood into the leg and lead to the death of skin and muscle of the leg. Death of the muscle and skin of the leg could lead to further complications and possibly amputation of the leg.
