Lakeville, MN, United States, 2010/07/02 - Wrap-It™ Bandages with hook and loop closures are ideal compression wraps and supports for medical needs and sports injuries. Available in a variety of sizes, these breathable, reusable bandages are machine washable, sterilizable and latex-free.
Wrap-It Bandages are the smart, environmentally friendly choice for providing compression and support for a variety of injuries and wounds. These durable, reusable wraps are machine washable and gas or steam sterilizable, unlike Ace bandages which contain volatile rubber compounds that cannot be sterilized. Wrap-It Bandages are ideal for woundcare in medical facilities and injury care in rehabilitation and sports facilities.
Made in the U.S.A. from nylon lycra fabric, Wrap-It Bandages are latex-free to help prevent allergic reactions. The nylon lycra fabric is soft and comfortable, and offers excellent breathability to keep skin dry and cool. The fabric does not stick to skin or hair. Highly absorbent, the nylon lycra fabric is extremely stable, providing consistent compression over time and through many uses.
Wrap-It Bandages are easy to use and can be cut to the size needed, or to provide an opening for the thumb. Cut bandages will not fray, even after washing. Integral hook and loop closures make securing the bandages simple: no metal or adhesives to apply.
Wrap-It Bandages are available in 12” long Wrist Wraps and 36” long Compression Wraps, which are ideal for the knee, elbow, foot, thigh or ankle. A variety of widths and colors are available, coordinating with large facilities’ departmental color coding systems.
Medical applications of Wrap-It Bandages include woundcare (place over sterile dressing and wrap), pre- and post-operative care, securing pediatric feeding tubes or IV tubing, dislocations, fractures, sprains, strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, orthopedic half-casts and rehabilitation support. Wrap-It Bandages’ absorbency, ease of application and compatibility with hot and cold compresses make it a versatile product which helps keep stock levels down and lowers costs.
Wrap-It Bandages are also ideal for the care of athletic injuries and rehabilitation, providing firm but flexible support to allow range of motion. Wrap-It Bandages’ comfort, breathability and durability through many uses increase patient compliance with doctors’ instructions and enable faster healing.
