Tubifast with 2-Way-Stretch Technolgy can be used for dressing retention and skin covering for any part of the body. It can also be used for patch wrapping and as an undercast stockinette.
Tubifast 2-Way Stretch was the world’s first lightweight elasticated tubular bandage with radial and longitudinal stretch. It is manufactured from rayon with very fine elastane threads knitted into the fabric to provide light elasticity.
Tubifast 2-Way Stretch holds dressings securely, without constriction or compression. Its light elasticity allows patients complete freedom of movement. The light, open weave fabric allows air to circulate over the skin, helping to avoid maceration. Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is available in a range of five widths, designed to fit snugly over all limbs, no matter what the size or shape. Each size is identified by a colour coded line knitted into the bandage. It’s quick and easy to use: cut to size and stretch over the dressing for an even, non-constrictive fit.
Because of its tubular construction, Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is particularly suitable for holding dressings in place on difficult areas such as stumps of amputee patients. No pins or tapes are necessary to retain Tubifast 2-Way Stretch.
