Crepe Bandages are strong support crepes for medium to long-term bandaging requirements. They are ideal for securing wound dressing, supporting strains, and providing compression to alleviate swelling.
They come in two weights for varying requirements of compression.
The medium weight crepe bandage is suitable for use as a dressing retention. Suitable for keeping gauze in place, stemming bleeding, and providing light compression.
The heavy weight crepe bandage is suitable for use as support for sprains and strains in joints and muscles. It also works as a moderate compression bandage for knee swelling, ankle swelling, and other relevant injuries.
For Dressing Retention
Firmly wrap the injured area using a figure 8 shape, or overlap for limb areas such as forearm or calf. Ensure that the areas above and below the injury are covered.
Always ensure the binding is comfortable. Should any numbness or tingling sensation arise, unwrap the bandage & rebind less tightly.
