Plaster Bandages for Making Plaster Splints & Dressings
Ready-to-dip, fast setting plaster bandages for treating fractures on limbs such as the Cellona plaster cast are used in the doctor's office or hospital to make individual plaster casts or plaster splints. The plaster bandage or plaster roll is a gauze bandage with a plaster mass. Bandages made with plaster casts are suitable for immobilising fractures on limbs or joint lesions, for example. The plaster bandages available from us are particularly easy to model and are characterised by a short setting time. In addition to plaster bandages for conservative casting, you will also find the longuette for applying plaster splints and broadlonguettes for making plaster corsets and recumbent shells. You will find the corresponding tubular bandage for the plaster in our category Tubular Bandages here in the shop.
As accessories to our plaster casts, we offer you, among other things, walking studs that can be easily integrated into the cast. The studs make walking with the plaster cast easier by acting as a rolling aid and providing additional cushioning when the walking cast is put on. In addition, we also offer abrasion-resistant and shock-absorbing walking soles for plaster and cast bandages, which enable physiologically correct movement of the foot and leg in the bandage.
Plaster Bandages are Easy to Apply
Modern plaster rolls are ready to use for dipping and moisten quickly and evenly on contact with water, so that they can be processed directly. One advantage is the good modelling properties of the bandage when wet, so that even complex plaster casts can be prepared reliably. Depending on the brand and manufacturer, the plaster is ready for transport after about 30 minutes and fully cured after about 12 to 24 hours.
Padded or Non-Padded Plaster Cast?
Provided there is no longer any risk of swelling, most recommend a cast without cushioning cotton wool or cellulose, as this immobilises the affected area better. However, cast padding is always applied at the edges and at the points of bony prominences to protect the skin and nerves.
What Do I Need to Pay Attention to with a Plaster Cast?
The most important rule is that the two joints adjacent to the injury always need to be included in the cast in a functional position. Exceptions are fractures of the distal radius and the upper ankle joint. To avoid pressure points, the attending physician should always hold the dressing with the flat of the hand and mould it into place. In addition, the plaster cast should be labelled and changed after the swelling has subsided.
