Effective compression treatment for venous leg ulcers
The adjustable compression device circaid juxtacures is an effective alternative to traditional compression bandaging. Thanks to the four interlacing bands with hook and loop fasteners the donning and doffing is very fast and simple. With the help of the integrated circaid Built-In-Pressure System (BPS) the required compression range can be adjusted and measured exactly. The ability to simply readjust the compression range during the day avoids a loss of pressure and thus prevents the device to slide down. This leads to a consistent and effective compression therapy improving decongestion of the venous oedema. Furthermore studies prove that with adjustable compression devices the healing rates of venous leg ulcers are faster compared to traditional compression bandaging (1, 2).Additionally, circaid juxtacures offers time- and cost-savings:- Cost reduction of wound dressings: 55.5 % (3)- Cost reduction of compression material: 72.3 % (3)- Reduction of nursing time: 60.0 % (3)- Cost savings in treatment due to faster healing rates (1, 2)Studies prove: ”adjustable compression devices represent a further advancement of compression therapy for VLUs [venous leg ulcers] treatment”.
