Tubigrip® Shaped Support, Natural shade Full-leg, Large D/F

Tubigrip® shaped support bandage (TSSB) is a tubular dressing. INTENDED USES: to aid venous and lymphatic return in the management of venous disorders of the legs and arms. Also used as an undercast stockinette in cast bracing, for support following cast removal, and to provide pressure therapy in the treatment of post-burn scarring. CLAIMED FEATURES: provides lasting, effective support in the treatment and management of venous disorders of the legs and arms, while allowing complete freedom of movement if patients are up and about. The elasticated cotton bandage only stretches radially – meaning it provides support without rucking or slipping down. It can be washed for repeated use. Only a single measurement around the calf or forearm is required for precise size selection. OPTIONS: Natural shade Full-leg, Large D/F

Product Information

Compression therapy is one of the most important pillars in the treatment of venous ulcers. Compression therapy can be applied through compression bandages, gradient compression stockings, gradient compression wraps, and tubular dressings. These devices address the cause of venous ulcers, by helping blood to return to the heart from the legs.
