Tubigrip and is also used for pressure dressings and arm fixation. Tubigrip is manufactured by Molnlycle, a leading manufacture of Wound Care Products, including Compression Dressings, Tubular Gauze and other medical supplies.

Tubigrip Elastic Tubular Bandages provide lasting, effective support with complete freedom of movement for the patient. Once the Tubigrip bandage has been applied, the fabric moves and adjusts to the contours of the body and distributes support evenly over the surface of the wrapped area.

Tubigrip Instruction St. Charles Medical Center
This video is designed to teach you how to correctly put on a Tubigrip . The Tubigrip can be placed on with a tight hose underneath, but nothing else should be underneath the Tubigrip. You'll notice that the pieces are marked with the correct leg and the correct leg portions. We're going to start with the thigh first. Pull the sleeve to the mid-thigh. Then roll the rest of the Tubigrip over the first layer until there is approximately one inch above the first layer. Be sure the sleeve fits from the tibial tubercle which is the bump right below the knee joint to the mid-thigh. Next, we'll place it on the lower leg portion which is marked with calf. Bring the first layer up to the tibial tubercle so that it is just overlapping the thigh Tubigrip. Then bring the second layer over so that it overlaps the first layer, approximately one inch. The fit should be from the base of the big toe to above the tibial tubercle. Lower leg Tubigrip should not extend above the knee.
