How Setopress Works
Setopress is a lightweight high compression bandage. To ensure correct application, a simple visual guide is permanently printed on the bandage. The visual guide consists of color rectangles which become squares when the correct extension is reached. Extending the BROWN rectangles to squares provides 40mm Hg at the ankle. Extending the GREEN rectangles to squares provides 30mmHg at the ankle.
If a patient is not accustomed to compression therapy or finds it difficult to comply, moderate compression may be used initially. 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.
The visual application guide makes it easy to apply Setopress consistently and correctly.
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.
