Product Information

Surgical Dressing Holders can be reusable or disposable. In this category are the Montgomery straps, which are paired adhesive straps applied to either side of a wound (usually abdominal), the central sections of which are folded back on themselves with several perforations at the leading edges. This provides a method of securing a bandage and subsequently changing it without having to replace the tape each time.
