Cohesive Bandages and Conforming Bandages
Cohesive bandages and conforming bandages are popular dressing materials, due to their flexible range of applications. Conforming bandages can be differentiated between rigid and elastic bandages. While elastic conforming bandages are mostly used for fastening wound covers on conical body parts or joints, as well as textile underlays for zinc paste bandages or as compression wraps, the rigid bandages are often simply referred to as conforming bandages and are used for immobilising body parts. Conforming bandages are usually non-sterile, but can often be sterilised by the user.
Classic conforming bandages are often cohesive (self-adhering) and provide high stability. Therefore, cohesive bandages are often preferred when wrapping splints or light support wraps, e.g. after sprains or torn muscle fibres. Cohesive bandages are also well suited as underlays for casts and plaster cast bandages. Exactly as with gauze bandages, crepe bandages are often used as a textile underlay for protecting the skin and improving comfort with the main wrap. Gauze bandages and crepe bandages are available, as needed, in various widths. Conforming bandages are typically available in a large range of colours. In this category, Praxisdienst offers you a wide assortment of cohesive bandages and conforming bandages from renowned manufacturers, such as Hartmann, MaiMed, BSN and Lohmann-Rauscher, at particularly low prices.
