Rosidal K

Short stretch compression system for effective treatment of venous ulceration with or without chronic oedema.

In detail

Rosidal K is applied at 100% stretch for accurate and easy application – reducing the risk of over compression. Used with cellona padding, Rosidal K can be used below knee or full leg for reducing chronic oedema and healing leg ulcers in mobile and immobile patients.

Key benefits

  • reusable
  • cost-effective
  • washable
  • easy to apply
  • 100% cotton


Indications for use:

  • Venous leg ulcers (VLU) with or without chronic oedema
  • Chronic oedema and lymphoedema
  • Mobile and immobile patients
  • If the ABPI is >0.8 - 1.3, Rosidal K compression therapy can be applied.
  • If the ABPI is >1.3 further investigation is required before Rosidal® K is applied (please refer to local guidelines).


  • If the ABPI is 0.5 – 0.8 (venous leg ulcer with an arterial component) Rosidal K® can be applied with caution under strict medical or vascular specialist supervision (Please refer to local guidelines.)
  • Not suitable for ankle circumference of less than 18cm unless padding is used to increase the ankle circumference to 18cm or more.

  • Significant arterial disease (ischaemia) according to vascular assessment
  • Current acute inflammatory episode
  • Acute deep vein thrombosis
  • Patients with diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis unless after specialist referral and under supervision
  • Patients with renal failure unless after specialist referral and under supervision
  • Congestive heart failure, as compression could lead to cardiac overload
  • Sensory disorders of the limb i.e. peripheral neuropathy
  • Known sensitivity to the bandage system

Following application:

  • if the patient shows signs of pain, reduced colour or numbness on their extremities distal to the bandage, then it should be removed immediately
  • As with all compression bandage systems, training on the correct application of Rosidal® K is recommended.
