Sizes Of Lymphedema Bandages And Bandaging
We have several types of lymphedema bandages available in a range of sizes.
Sizes Of Short Stretch Compression Bandages
Short stretch compression bandages vary in size from 2 centimeters (approximately ¾ of an inch) to 12 centimeters (approximately 4.75 inches). The wider widths of short stretch compression bandages are generally used for adults’ arms, legs, torsos, and chests. The shorter widths of short stretch compression bandages are generally used for toes, fingers, and children.
Sizes Of Tubular Stockinettes And Tubular Elastic Bandages
Bandages Plus has developed a sizing guideline to help determine which size of tubular stockinettes and tubular elastic bandages might be the right fit for you. For both, you need to measure around the circumference of the arm or leg to figure out its diameter. When measuring, you should measure around the widest part of the arm or leg.
|Measurement Around Arm Or Leg||Letter Size||Width of Stockinette Or Tubular Bandage|
|Less than 4” to 4” inches||A||1 ⅝ inches (4 centimeters)|
|4 inches to 5 ¾ inches||B||2 ½ inches (6.5 centimeters)|
|5 ¾ inches to 9 ½ inches||C||2 ¾ inches (7 centimeters)|
|9 ½ inches to 14 inches||D||3 inches (7.5 centimeters)|
|14 inches to 17 ½ inches||E||3 ½ inches (9 centimeters)|
|17 ½ inches to 20 inches||F||4 inches (10 centimeters)|
|20 inches to 26 inches||G||5 inches (13 centimeters)|
|26 inches to 30 inches||J||7 inches (18 centimeters)|
