Tubigrip provides tissue support in the treatment of strains and sprains, soft tissue injuries, joint effusions, general oedema, post- burn scarring and ribcage injuries and is also used for pressure dressings and arm fixation.
Tubigrip is made from cotton with covered elastic threads laid into the fabric to form free-moving spirals. The fabric is available in two colours – natural shade and flesh shade.
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. Tubular Bandage Applicators may be used to make application easier over bulky dressings or painful joints.
