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