Tubigrip Support Bandages are manufactured by Molnlycle Wound Care to be used as an Anatomically Shaped Bandage. This anatomically shaped bandage is designed for venous disorders. Tubigrip is a Tubular Shaped Support Bandage (TSSB) that provides aid for venous and lymphatic return. The Tubigrip Shaped Support Bandage functions as Compression Support Hosiery and is useful in the management of venous disorders of the legs and arms. TSSB may also be used as an undercast stockinette in cast bracing and for support following cast removal. Tubi Grip also provides pressure therapy in the treatment of post-burn scarring.
Tubigrip® Shaped Support Bandage TSSB is constructed from cotton, polyamide and elastodiene to provide an anatomically-shaped Tubigrip that provides support to the limbs. The Tubigrip cotton has elastic threads laid into the cotton fabric to form free moving support spirals. The Tubi Grip fabric is available in two colors – natural and beige.
Tubigrip Shaped Support Bandage provides lasting, effective support while allowing ambulant patients freedom of movement. The Tubigrip Bandage stretches to provide support without wrinkling or slipping. TSSB can be washed or autoclaved for repeated use, without loss of efficacy. Reapplication after washing Tubigrip is quick and easy for patients.
