UrgoKTwo Reduced

UrgoKTwo Reduced

Urgo Medical

Description

Two-layer compression bandage system that combines elastic and inelastic components. Provides sustained graduated compression for up to 7 days. The first layer, KTech, is a short-stretch (inelastic) bandage that delivers stiffness, absorbency and 80% of the pressure. The second-layer, K-Press, is an elastic, cohesive bandage that keeps the system in place and provides additional compression, to provide therapeutic compression. UrgoKTwo Reduced donates an average pressure of 20mmHg at the ankle. Also available in latex-free.

Indications

For the treatment of mixed aetiology leg ulcers, associated oedema and lymphoedema.

Contraindications

Severe arterial disease (ABPI <0.6). Diabetic microangiopathy, ischaemic phlebitis and septic thrombosis. Allergy to any of the components, in particular latex for the ‘non-latex-free’ version. Ulceration caused by infection.
