Tubular Bandage Applicators
Application of a tubular bandage can sometimes be difficult and using an applicator can make the job a lot simpler, tidier, quicker and a lot less painful.
Use a Plastic Applicator, Sugar Tong or Shuttlecock for sizes 00, 01 and 12 for fingers and toes, or a chrome cage for Elasticated Tubular Bandage or Gauze Stockinet for sizes C to F on adult ankles, wrists and limbs.
Slide all of the measured tubular bandage onto the outside of the cage or applicator and slip the cage over the finger, toe or limb, pull off one end of the bandage at the bottom of the knuckle or joint and slide the cage over the area to cover, while releasing the bandage slowly, get to the end, twist around on a finger or just double back on yourself to then finish where you started.
Cage can be slid off, leaving the bandage on the finger, toe or limb to be secured in place with a strip of sticky tape if required, while covering a dressing or compressing a swollen or painful joint without increased pain.
