Who Can Use the ULCER X Compression Stocking Kit?
Anyone suffering from severe venous conditions including active ulceration of the leg can benefit from the ULCER X Compression Stocking Kit. By offering 34 - 46mmHg of compression, the stocking can encourage blood flow to and from the site of the wound and reduce swelling, quickening the rate of healing.
The ULCER X Wound Healing Kit is suitable for treating the following conditions:
- Severe venous conditions
- Chronic oedema
- Active venous ulcers on the leg
- Preventing the return of ulcers
What Makes the ULCER X Kit So Effective?
- Cotton blend liner protects open leg wounds from infection and damage
- Liners and Stocking provide 34 - 46mmHg of compression to quicken healing
- Compression promotes blood flow while reducing swelling and fluid retention
- Natural yarns allow the stockings to slide on and off with ease
- Easy-to-apply design can be applied and removed by patient without assistance
- Cotton blend liner is made to be soft against the skin for maximum comfort and protection
How Do I Wear the Ulcer X Kit?
For patients requiring the full 34 - 46mmHg of compression, the stocking and liners in this kit should be worn together. If you are wondering whether you can wear the liners or stocking on their own, we suggest to consult with your doctor, as this may be suitable in certain cases.
How Does the ULCER X Kit Work?
The liners in this kit shields the injury from damage and infection and the compression provided improves blood flow. This double action treatment helps to treat venous conditions which can be caused by poor circulation, while also preventing swelling so wounds can heal more quickly.
How Comfortable Are The Liners?
Wound dressings and compression garments often need to be worn for long periods during treatment, so comfort is of utmost importance. Made with this in mind, the ULCER X liners feature a blend of cotton and elastane which feels soft against the skin and allows you to retain flexibility in your foot and ankle.
How Easy Are These Garments To Put On?
Compression garments can be difficult to apply due to their tight-fitting nature. However, the natural yarns of the compression stocking, and the soft cotton blend of the liners mean they can be slid on and off without any hassle.
How Much Compression Does This Kit Offer?
The individual components of this kit provide differing levels of compression:
- Liners: 15 - 20mmHg (a low level of compression suitable for treating mild conditions)
- Knee High Compression Stocking: 23 - 32mmHg (a moderate level of compression which can be used for conditions like varicose veins)
When the liners and stocking are worn together however, the kit can offer 34 - 46mmHg of compression, which is suitable for addressing severe conditions like chronic oedema and serious venous conditions.
Can I Wash the Garments In This Kit?
To keep you garments in good condition, wash them daily by hand or in a washing machine (in a washing bag and on a delicate cycle). Don't exceed 40°C when washing the compression stocking or 60°C when washing the liners. Avoid using fabric softener or putting these garments in a dryer.
