PROFORE WCL

Wound Contact Layer for Compression Bandaging

Overview

Description

PROFORE WCL (Wound Contact Layer) is a 14cm x 20cm (5 1/2" x 8") dressing made of knitted viscose rayon.


Features & Benefits

  • Non-adherent
    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.
  • Non-adhesive
    PROFORE WCL is non-adhesive and therefore recommended for wounds surrounded by sensitive skin, such as venous leg ulcers.
  • Highly Porous
    PROFORE WCL is highly porous. This helps to prevent maceration of the peri-wound by preventing exudate pooling
  • Highly Conformable
    The knitted construction of PROFORE WCL makes the dressing highly conformable, providing comfort for the patient while helping to maintain a moist environment at the wound site.


Indications

PROFORE WCL is indicated to act as a non-adherent interface between the granulating wound surface and conventional absorbent dressings. It can also be used in conjunction with PROFORE, PROFORE LF and PROFORE Lite, the Multi-layer Compression Bandage Systems. PROFORE WCL provides physical separation between the wound and external environments to assist in preventing bacterial contamination of the wound. PROFORE WCL aids in the creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment. Moist wound environments have been established as optimal environments for the management of the wound.


Precautions

If reddening or sensitization occurs, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
