Tubular rib is ideally designed to provide a protective layer in direct contact with the skin.
Tubular Rib Tubular Protection Bandage is used for:
- Protection of the skin prior to the application of fibreglass and plaster of paris casts
- Protection of the skin under all types of compression bandaging
- 100% cotton
It is important when measuring tubular rib prior to application that an amount of 5cm is allowed at either end of the bandage. The bandage can be gently rolled onto the limb or torso allowing a split at the thumb site for arm casts. Tubular rib can be applied indepenently using multiple layers or in conjunction with flat undercast padding.
