The SIS pads are currently not supplied in a ‘soft ported’ form. This means that they do not have a completely flat surface, due to the connecting wire of the pad having a slight protrusion of approximately 1.5 millimeter (1/16th inch) along the pad’s skin-contacting surface.
For venous leg ulcers, the connecting wire protrusion might create a small area of focused pressure on intact skin around the ulcer, possibly causing the skin to break. This possible safety issue especially applies if compression bandages are used, and if they are not the hook and loop strap fastening types that are removed more frequently.
Extra caution should be taken when using the SIS pads for venous leg ulcers. Consult your wound care professional for advice.
