Cohesive Bandages & Wraps

Our cohesive bandages are excellent products for applying a compression bandage. Their design lets them limit bleeding and swelling within a joint. Joint swelling and bleeding can occur following a sports injury such as a sprained ankle or a knee ligament injury. Early application of a compression bandage can help to accelerate healing and rehabilitation.

A Cohesive bandage sticks only to itself, so there's no need for an underwrap. This makes it an ideal solution for situations that require tape to be wrapped around a limb. Using these avoids the commonly associated pain of waxing the hair off your skin when it comes to removal.

FAQs

How Do you Apply a Cohesive Bandage?

Cohesive bandages adhere to themselves but don't adhere well to skin, hair or clothing. Wrap the bandage around the area you need to bandage and press the layers together. For some areas, you may also need to secure it with PVC tape if the bandage is likely to be pulled during sports or daily activities.

This flexibility allows the bandage to conform to even the most awkward body contours. As such, this ensures you will find this cohesive bandage comfortable to wear.

Cohesive bandage tape adheres to itself, meaning that under-wrap or pre-wrap is optional. Its high-quality manufacturing means it comes off the roll smoothly and conforms to the body part that is being taped. It is especially good for body parts that are normally difficult to tape.

Cotton cohesive bandage tape is ideal for absorbing blood and sweat. It can also be used to secure a tape job in order to provide support and increase proprioceptive awareness. This is achieved by giving sensory feedback to the brain that helps prevent the patient from 'going over' on the injured part.

Cohesive and Elastic Types of Bandage

Cohesive Bandages perform better than conventional bandages for sports injuries. This is simply because they can stick to themselves. This means there is no need to stick the bandages to the skin or use a safety pin. Firstly, this increases their cost-effectiveness. It also gives the bandages greater strength when properly applied.

Elastic Bandages work through the use of elastic. They are usually created in the form of short-stretch bandages. These use the resistance of elastic to apply themselves on or around the injured area. You can find durable elastic bandage wrap in the Physioroom stock.

Compression Bandage

Apply a cohesive bandage with compression when it is necessary to compress the muscle that has been injured. A compression bandage squeezes the muscle, increasing local blood supply. This reduces swelling, relieving pain or discomfort. Cohesive Compression wraps can be used in conjunction with compression stockings. Together they can treat a sprained ankle or strain injuries. Seek professional advice for the application of compression bandages.
