Instructions for Use

This information is intended for Healthcare Professionals only.

PROFOREBefore applying Tensopress◊, it is important to check the following:

  • Assess the patient's limb to rule out arterial disease. The use of Doppler ultrasound is recommended.
  • Measure the ankle circumference to confirm that it is greater than 18cm.
  • Assess the patient's limb for bony prominences or calf fibrosis. Ensure that these are well protected using a natural padding bandage e.g. SOFFBAN* Natural Sub-compression Wadding Bandage

Alt Text Tensopress bandages should be applied as early in the day as possible and removed at night.

  • Apply from toes to knee using a spiral technique with 50% overlap.
  • Apply the bandage steeply across the foot to reduce build-up of material over the front of the ankle.
  • Secure bandage using tape.
