Self Adhering Bandages, sometimes known as cohesive bandages, are a special kind of bandages that provide compression without the need for clips, tape or safety pins. They are also hand tearable and do not adhere to skin, hair or other materials. Since they do not adhere to skin, there is no fear of it pulling at the skin or at hair, no need for underwrap or for any adhesive removal sprays.
We exclusively carry ProGuard’s Self Adhering Bandage because they provide superior cohesive strength in comparison to other brands, and they hand tear in a straight line without the need for scissors.
They’re perfect for light compression in a sports environment. They can be applied quickly, without needing any other implements such as scissors or tape, and come in a variety of colors. They’re simple to use, just wrap the bandage tightly around the limb/joint, then tear it off and press the end against the rest of the wrap.
1″ widths are great for taping fingers and thumbs,
2″ widths are good for wrists and ankles
3″ widths are better suited for knees, ankles and elbows.
4″ widths are suited for ankles, thighs, shins and forearms.
These bandages provide light to medium compression. If you’re looking for higher compression, consider using elastic adhesive bandages.
