Juxtacures ulcer recovery system
- Easy donning and doffing
- Adjustable, measurable compression
- Pleasant wearing comfort
The adjustable compression device circaid juxtacures is an effective alternative to traditional compression bandaging. Thanks to the four interlacing bands with hook and loop fasteners the donning and doffing is very fast and simple. With the help of the integrated circaid Built-In-Pressure System (BPS) the required compression range can be adjusted and measured exactly. The ability to simply readjust the compression range during the day avoids a loss of pressure and thus prevents the device from sliding down. This leads to a consistent and effective compression therapy improving decongestion of the venous oedema. Furthermore studies prove that treatment with adjustable compression devices offers faster healing rates of venous leg ulcers compared to traditional compression bandaging. (1, 2)
Additionally, circaid juxtacures offers time- and cost-savings:
- Cost reduction of wound dressings: 55.5 % (3)
- Cost reduction of compression material: 72.3 % (3)
- Reduction of nursing time: 58,7 % (3)
- Cost savings in treatment due to faster healing rates(1, 2)
Studies prove: ”adjustable compression devices represent a further advancement of compression therapy for VLUs [venous leg ulcers] treatment”.(4)
- Simple donning and doffing
- Customisable to the patient´s individual circumferences and shape
- Adjustable to reducing leg circumferences during decongestion
- circaid Built-In-Pressure System (BPS): adjustable, measurable and re-adjustable compression (20 - 30, 30 - 40, 40 - 50 mmHg) – 85 % of users reached the targeted compression value after first instruction (4)
- Breathe-O-Prene: breathable material with high working pressure
- Latex-free, odour-inhibiting material with anti-bacterial effect
- Re-adjustability of the individual bands avoids pressure loss and thus sliding down of the garment (1, 2) –supporting oedema reduction effectively (1)
- Can also be worn at night if required
- Suitable for washing machine and dryer
- 6 month life span
- Easy handling – time-saving and less susceptible to error (4)
- Compression – essential part of guideline-compliant treatment of venous leg ulcer (5, 6)
- Faster healing rates of venous leg ulcer (1, 2)
- Cost savings due to faster healing rates (2)
- Increased patient-concordance: 94.6 % of the users experience the wearing comfort as pleasant (4)
- Increased mobility: possibility of wearing regular footwear (4)
- Promotes self-management thanks to easy handling (2)
Intended purpose:The compression system is designed to provide compression to the lower leg for patients with venous and lymphatic disorders. The device consists of a series of juxtapositioned, inelastic bands extending from the central portion of the garment. The wrap contours the leg and is designed to cover from just above the ankle bone to just below the knee.

Giraffes have venous pressures of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles, three times more than humans. However, giraffes do not suffer from lymphoedema or venous disorders. The answer is the skin: giraffe skin is inelastic, meaning it does not stretch. Thus, giraffes are not susceptible to lymphoedema or venous diseases even though they may be on their feet 24 hours a day. circaid has incorporated this concept into its products creating solutions for an increased patient compliance and a better quality of life.
