What is a Tubular Bandage used for?

A tubular bandage is a tube-shaped bandage mainly worn over an extremity like arms, elbows, wrists, ankles, knees, and thighs or on fingers or toes. It is comfortable to wear and supports the soft tissues around the wound. The bandage fits snugly over the dressing on the affected limb and does not require pins, tape, or other fastenings. Tubular elastic bandages provide 360-degree uniform compression and support and help prevent edema, treat lymphedema, and reduce post-burn scarring. The tubular bandage may need to be cut to a small size before placing it over an injury. A tube bandage is multifunctional and is used for a wide variety of applications, including:

  • It is used to retain wound dressings and provide a protective padding surface to the skin. The padding protects the wound from any physical damage that can occur externally.
  • It secures the primary wound dressing and does not allow contaminants to enter the wounds.
  • It is ideal for the effective management of strains, sprains, soft tissue injuries.
  • It is also used as a protective skin surface while using plaster of Paris or synthetic casts.
  • The tubular bandages are used as a protective layer under compression bandages to protect the skin from rashes and drags.
