International guidelines recognize the superior efficacy of multi-component bandages.
"Multi-component bandages are more effective than single-component bandages."1
"Multi-component systems containing an elastic bandage appear to be more effective than those composed mainly of inelastic constituents."2
So, what does more effective compression look like?
A unique MoA: Dual compression with PresSure system
The UrgoK2 dual compression system combines the benefits of inelastic and elastic bandages to ensure continuous, consistent, and comfortable pressure3
Two active compression bandages that together provide the target dosage your patient needs
A venous leg ulcer does not sleep at night. That's why applying continuous pressure is so important. UrgoK2 guarantees continuous pressure day and night — whether the patient is in motion or not.4
UrgoK2 removes the guesswork about whether your patient is getting the effective compression to heal, thanks to easy-to-follow visual guides.
Unique, patented indicator presSure system guarantees correct stretch.
Two size options ensure correct overlap is achieved
First time's the charm
85% of nurses achieved the recommended pressure on their first application of UrgoK26
A night-and-day difference
According to patients, UrgoK2 provides comfortable compression around the clock for better concordance.
What patient doesn't want to get back to normal? UrgoK2 is more breathable and less bulky than other bandages, helping your patients maintain their everyday life.
Randomized Controlled Trial: Non-inferiority versus 4-layer, easier to apply and well-tolerated
