Short Stretch Adhesive Bandage

    Lengthwise and widthwise stretchable woven, 100 % cotton adhesive short stretch bandage for compression bandaging in phlebology provides excellent conformability around body contours. Fabric with porously applied adhesive is permeable to air and water vapor thus offering good ventilation.

    Short stretch bandages provides a high working pressure and a low resting pressure making them well tolerated. The bandage can be worn both at rest and during exercise therefore, the bandage can be worn at night.

    The bandage is also ideal for taping ankles, wrists, knees, and shoulders as it helps to support sprains and injuries in a joint area.  An elastic adhesive bandage can assist in keeping joints mobile thus making it an excellent choice for use in high stress sports.

    Furthermore, because of the high cotton content they are well tolerated by patients, making them very suitable as long-term bandages.
