Description

Two-layer compression bandage system that combines elastic and inelastic components. Provides sustained graduated compression for up to 7 days. The first-layer, K-Techis 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 achieve therapeutic pressure. 

Indications

For the treatment of venous leg ulcers, venous oedema and lymphoedema.

Contraindications

Arterial disease (ABPI <0.8). 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.
