Elastic Compression Bandage

Description

Tensopress® is a knitted bandage incorporating a soft blend of cotton, viscose and elastic thread. This combination reduces the possibility of irritation to sensitive healing skin and provides superior stretching properties, making it highly conformable.
Tensopress® is a light, strong bandage that will not fray at the edges and is long enough to cover the leg from the base of the toes to the knee.

Easy to use and comfortable to wear, Tensopress® provides consistent stretch and regain for controlled compression. The durable elastic construction ensures sustained compression, while the conformable design avoids ridging and uneven pressure.

Features and Benefits

Controlled Compression

  • Tensopress gives you precise control over bandage compression, with an even increase in elasticity throughout its working extension, to make sub-bandage pressures considerably easier to gauge.

Easy to Use

  • The design and knit of Tensopress® make it a strong, light and easy to use bandage which naturally follows a smooth and consistent line around the difficult shapes and angles of the foot and ankle. Tensopress conforms smoothly and evenly to provide the patient with a comfortable yet firm bandage. A central yellow line has been included to aid correct overlap.

Sustained Compression

  • The research behind Tensopress® indicates that it sustains an even and consistent compression for periods of over a week, even after washing, making it an extremely reliable and cost-effective treatment option.

Reduced Irritation

  • Tensopress® stays firmly in place to reduce irritation and the temptation for the patient to interfere with open or healing areas.

Contraindications / Precautions

Tensopress® is not suitable for ankles of less than 18cm in circumference. If necessary, pad ankle to 18cm or greater.

Instructions for use

Elastic Compression Bandage

Step 1:
Measure the circumference of the ankle and refer to the application guide (below). Note the recommended extension for the circumference of the ankle. 

Step 2:
Start bandaging at the side of the toes with one or two anchor turns. Do not apply excess pressure at this stage.

Step 3:
Apply one turn mainly above the heel. Apply one turn mainly below the heel and continue up the leg using a standard spiral bandaging technique. 

Step 4:
Overlap to the green line whilst maintaining a constant extension of 50% or 75% greater than the unstretched length ( see application guide). 

Step 5:
Secure bandage with pin or tape. Cut off excess bandage.
