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 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. Tubigrip is available in two shades - natural and beige.
Tubular bandage Applicators
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.
The applicators are available in a full range of sizes and are made from durable chrome-plated steel
