- Areas of Use:
- Setopress high compression bandages are used in the treatment of venous leg ulcers and associated conditions requiring graduated compression of the leg
- How Setopress Works:
- Setopress is a lightweight, high compression bandage. To ensure correct application, a simple visual guide is indelibly printed on the bandage. The visual guide consists of colour rectangles which become squares when the correct extension is reached.
On one side of the bandage are brown rectangles which become squares when the correct extension is reached, to provide over 40mmHg at the ankle for optimum healing rates. When applied correctly, Setopress high compression bandages produce a level of compression that has been shown to heal even long-standing leg ulcers within 12 weeks.
On the other side are green rectangles giving moderate compression (30mmHg at the ankle). If a patient is not used to compression therapy or finds it difficult to comply, moderate compression may be used initially.
The visual application guide makes it easy to apply Setopress consistently and correctly
