Features and details
Unique technology holds dressings securely, without constriction or compression and without the need for tapes, pins or ties. Tubifast with 2-Way Stretch Technology is manufactured from rayon with very fine elastane threads knitted into the fabric to provide light elasticity. It 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.
Areas of use
Because of its tubular construction, Tubifast with 2-Way Stretch Technology 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.
