A compression bandage is a stretchy bandage wrapped around the body to provide pressure. It is a common part of many first aid procedures including rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) therapy.
Compression bandages also help reduce the risk of pain and swelling as it restricts the blood flow in the body.
They are also ideal for post-surgery recovery, stabilising body parts. This reduces fluid build-up in any given body part in conjunction with appropriate body positioning. Trained medical staff will also ensure the bandage is not too tight to allow blood circulation.
While there are multiple compression bandage sizes to choose from, larger sizes are recommended. These are generally more comfortable and are less likely to reduce blood flow and circulation.
USL Medical has a number of quality compression bandaging kits you can choose from depending on your needs. This includes compression high stretch, compression padding, two-layer compression kits and more.
