Profore WCL (Wound Contact Layer) is a 14cm x 20cm dressing made of knitted viscose rayon. CLAIMED BENEFITS: It is non-adherent and highly porous and conformable. Profore WCL has an open knit construction, which allows exudate to pass freely, while helping to limit the adherence of the dressing to the wound. INTENDED USE: For wounds surrounded by sensitive skin, such as venous leg ulcers. It can also be used in conjunction with Profore, Profore LF and Profore Lite, the Multi-layer Compression Bandage Systems.

Product Information

Compression therapy is one of the most important pillars in the treatment of venous ulcers. Compression therapy can be applied through compression bandages, gradient compression stockings, gradient compression wraps, and tubular dressings. These devices address the cause of venous ulcers, by helping blood to return to the heart from the legs. There are a variety of types of compression bandage systems available; some are just a single bandage, while others require the application of several different types of bandages to the leg.
