DynaPro Selfwrap Bandages adhere to each other during application and not to skin, hair or other materials. This facilitates removal of the bandage and makes it pain free for the patient. Like DynaPro StretchLight, these bandages are elastic and can therefore provide therapeutic compression. In addition, the therapist can adjust this compression to any given situation. For example, a minor finger sprain may require very little compression while a heavily bleeding wound may require a lot more.
Unlike many other cohesive (self adhesive) bandages on the market, our SelfWrap Bandages are latex free and hypoallergenic. They are therefore the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. They are also hand tearable.
SelfWrap Bandages also feature versatility and the ability to adapt to a wide range of injury scenarios. You can vary both the tension of the bandage and the number of layers you apply to the injured area to apply different levels of compression and support. Increasing the amount of “stretch” in the bandage during application will also increase the compression. You can also simultaneously adjust the degree of support through the choice of the number of layers applied. The higher the number of layers, the greater the degree of support. This is especially the case as you press the layers together and exploit the cohesive properties of the material.
Another important advantage of Dynapro SelfWrap Bandages is their reusability. Since they do not use or rely on an adhesive, they do not lose their stickiness over time. Hence, if you make a mistake in applying the bandage or would like to adjust it, you can simply remove and reapply it. You can also reuse the bandage as often as needed.
Tensile strength of these latex free bandages is 35 Newtons/inch.
