Smith & Nephew Profore Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System is designed to apply sustained graduated compression for the management of venous leg ulcers and associated conditions. It is the gold standard 4 layer compression system which provides approximately 40mm Hg pressure at the ankle decreasing to 17mm Hg at the knee.

What does Profore Compression Bandaging System include?

Each system pack contains the following:
  • One Profore wound contact layer
  • One Profore #1 natural padding bandage
  • One Profore #2 light conformable dressing
  • One Profore #3 light compression bandage
  • One Profore #4 flexible cohesive bandage

Why choose Smith and Nephew Profore Compression Bandage?

  • 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 Weartime - Profore 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 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.

When to use Profore Multi-Layer Compression Bandage System?

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).

What to buy with Profore Compression Bandage

How to use Profore Multi-Layer Compression Wrap?

  1. Wash and dry leg and apply a moisturizing cream to the unbroken skin. Apply Profore in the following sequence:
  2. Profore WCL sterile wound contact layer: Remove from the pack with sterile forceps and apply to the wound. Hold in place until covered by Profore #1.
  3. Profore #1 natural padding bandage: Apply from the base of the toes to the knee using a simple spiral technique and 50% overlap. Do not apply tension.
  4. Profore #2 Light conformable bandage: Apply from the base of the toes to the knee, over Profore #1, using a simple spiral technique, apply at mid-stretch and 50% overlap. For maximum patient comfort, leave a slight border of Profore #1 visible to prevent subsequent bandages rubbing on the skin. Cut off any excess Profore #2. Use tape to secure.
  5. Profore #3 light compression bandage: Apply from the base of the toes to the knee, using a figure of eight technique at 50% extension. Use the central yellow line as guidance for 50% overlap. Use tape to secure.
  6. Profore #4 flexible cohesive bandage: Apply from toe 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. Apply the bandage steeply across the foot to reduce build-up of material over the front of the ankle.

Precautions to take while using Profore Compression Wrap

  • Do not use on patients with an ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) of less than 0.8, or on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease.
  • Should the patient develop pain or pale, cool or numb extremities distal to the dressing, the bandages should be promptly removed. If the patient has a very thin ankle or very prominent tibial crest, extra padding should be applied to these areas to prevent pressure necrosis.
  • Failure to detect significantly reduced arterial flow can result in pressure necrosis, amputation or even death.
  • This product has components that contain natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
  • The risk of arterial as well as venous disease rises with age.
