Elasticon with woven, firm edges is a cotton crêpe bandage with textile elasticity (DIN 61632-IB-W) for extra high compression. Its highly practical properties have made it an indispensable part of bandaging treatment.
- Both bandages have an elasticity of approx. 90%, which allows firm bandaging with good compression and a massage effect.
- Their low resting pressure also makes them suitable for all prophylactic and therapeutic measures for bed-ridden patients.
- Due to the rapid loss of the compression effect, all textile elastic bandages should be re-applied daily. However, the elasticity of used bandages can be restored by washing.
- Elasticon is permeable to secretions and air, may be washed at 95 ºC and sterilized (by autoclaving at 134 ºC).
For high compression; in chronic venous obstructive oedema, venous leg ulcers, thrombophlebitis, prophylactic and aftercare of venous disorders; for pre-, intra- and post-operative venous thrombosis; as a support and relief bandage in musculo-skeletal injuries and as a sports bandage
