Precautions for use

  • Never place the bandage directly on damaged skin (cover first with an appropriate dressing)
  • If being used for dressing retention, the bandage may be sterilised if necessary
  • When applied, the embossing must stay visible to guarantee a secure application.
  • In phlebology, the bandage should be applied first thing –pulling it up the leg from the toes and kept in place until bedtime.
  • In cases of prolonged or repeated use, the use of greasy substances under the bandage may weaken the elastic filaments and reduce the effectiveness of the bandage
  • If the bandage is too tight, reduce the tension.
  • Protect from excessive heat and sunlight.
