Juxta CURES: An innovative method of providing compression for leg ulcer managementMany patients with leg ulcers require compression therapy to help heal the wound, but often, patients find their treatment challenging and difficult to tolerate. Since the 1990s, the mainstay of treatment in the UK has been compression bandaging of one sort or another, alternatively, ulcer kits comprising of compression hosiery are an added choice. This article describes three case studies in which a leg ulcer compression system called Juxta CURES™ (medi UK) has been successfully used to provide therapeutic compression on patients for whom compression bandages or hosiery were found to be unsuitable, not tolerated, or did not fit in with their lifestyle.
