Wash and dry leg and apply a moisturizing cream to the unbroken skin.
Apply PROFORE in the following sequence:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
