Tubular elastic bandages are designed with a specific weave that self-adjusts to provide continuous and even support and pressure, while ensuring flexibility of movement without the risk of constriction. Easily cut into the desired length, tubular elastic bandages are ideal for edema reduction, post-cast support, treating sprains, strains and soft-tissue injuries and for wound dressing retention.
When used under short stretch compression bandages as part of a multi-layer compression bandage application, tubular elastic bandages apply gentle, uniform pressure, as well as provide a layer of support and skin protection. Tubular elastic bandages are also used in conjunction with foams and paddings which are used to help cushion the skin and distribute the compressive pressures created by the short stretch bandages.
