Smith & Nephew Profore Lite Multi-Layer Compression Bandaging System is specifically designed for the management of mixed etiology leg ulcers where the patient has been identified to have some degree of arterial impairment which prevents the use of full compression because of the risk of ischaemic necrosis.

Multi-Layer Compression Bandaging System Features

  • One PROFORE WCL Sterile Wound Contact Layer – helps protect the wound site and help wick away exudate into the absorbent padding.
  • One PROFORE #1 absorbent padding bandage – helps absorb exudate and helps protect bony prominences.
  • One PROFORE #2 light conformable bandage – helps absorb exudate and helps prepare and sculpt the leg for the application of the pressure layers.
  • One PROFORE #4 cohesive compression bandage – helps maintain continuous compression and keeps the system in place for up to a full week.

Benefits of Profore Compression Bandage

  • 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.

What to buy with Smith and Nephew Compression Bandage

How to use Profore Lite?

  1. It is important to check the following Wash and dry the leg and apply a moisturizing cream to the unbroken skin. Apply the PROFORE WCL dressing.
  2. Apply the PROFORE WCL sterile wound contact layer directly over the wound surface. If the wound is larger than the contact dressing, PROFORE WCL dressings may be purchased separately. The contact dressing will not stick to the surface of the wound, and when the wound begins draining after compression is applied, the drainage will pass through the contact dressing to be absorbed by the padding layer.
  3. Apply PROFORE #1 Absorbent Padding Bandage. With the foot flexed to 90 degrees, apply from the base of the toes to the knee using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Do not apply tension. Ensure that bony prominences are padded so that the ankle measurement is greater than 18 cm or 7¼ inches. Any leftover padding may be applied directly over the wound to absorb more wound drainage.
  4. Apply PROFORE #2 Light Conforming Bandage. Keeping the foot flexed to 90 degrees, apply PROFORE #2 from the base of the toes to the knee using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Ensure that the heel is completely covered. Secure at the top with a piece of tape or ask the patient to hold it in place.
  5. Apply PROFORE #4 Cohesive Compression Bandage. Keeping the foot flexed to 90 degrees, apply PROFORE #4 from the base of the toes to the knee using a simple spiral technique with 50% overlap and 50% extension. Ensure that the heel is completely covered. PROFORE #4 will adhere to itself and no tape is necessary to keep it in place. However, for added security, a piece of tape may be used for reinforcement.
