Multi-purpose tubular bandage and applicators Tubigrip
provides tissue support in the treatment of strains and sprains, soft
tissue injuries, joint effusions, general oedema, post- burn scarring
and ribcage injuries and is also used for pressure dressings and arm
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 reapplied after washing, without loss of effect,
Tubigrip is particularly useful for outpatients and in the community.
Tubigrip reduces wastage, as only the exact amount required is cut from
the roll. Apply with a 2"_3cm overlap. Tubular Bandage Applicators may be
used to make application easier over bulky dressings or painful joints.
Tubigrip is loaded onto the applicator, which is then positioned over
the affected area. The end of the bandage is held in position while the
applicator is gently removed, leaving the Tubigrip in place. Form a
double layer by doubling back the bandage. Ensure that the upper edge of
the second layer is taken 2"_3cm higher up the limb than the first.
