Venous leg ulcers develop when there is not enough blood flow to the
lower extremities. Nutrients and oxygen can't get to the skin, causing
death of the tissue, and the development of a venous leg ulcer.
Compression is a cornerstone in the treatment of venous leg ulcers.
Jobst has been a leader in the treatment of venous leg ulcers. Their
new and improved 2 part system consists of a high compression outer
stocking and a mild compression liner. The liners hold wound dressings
in place, are easy to put on and take off, and can be changed often.
The outer stocking provides compression and stiffness to improve blood
flow and heal the wound.
UlcerCare is now available in 7 sizes to fit almost any size leg.
The outer stockings can be purchased with or without a zipper and each
one comes with 2 liners. The improved liners are made with 5% silk,
improving comfort and compliance. Additional liners are available in
packages of 3.
