Tubigrip Tubular Bandage
Part Number: 1437
Price: $65.80 Ea
Tubigrip provides tissue support in the treatment of strains and sprains, soft tissue injuries, general oedema, post- burn scarring and ribcage injuries and is also used for pressure dressings and arm fixation.
Tubigrip provides lasting, effective support with complete freedom of movement for the patient. Once the bandage has been applied, covered elastic threads within the fabric move to adjust to the contours of the body and distribute pressure evenly over the surface. Fitting is quick and easy. Tubigrip stays securely in position without pins or tapes, unlike conventional crepe bandages. As it can easily be eapplied after washing, without loss of effect, Tubigrip is particularly useful for outpatients and in the community. Tubigrip reduces astage, as only the exact amount required is cut from the roll. Apply with a 23cm overlap. Tubigrip is available in two shades natural and beige.
HOW TO APPLY TUBIGRIP:
- Cut Tubigrip to twice length required for limb, allowing an extra 23cm for overlap.
- Pull Tubigrip onto limb like a stocking.
- Double Tubigrip back over limb. Ensure upper edge is taken 23cm higher up the limb than the first.
