How Tubifast 2-Way Stretch Works:
Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is the world’s first and only lightweight elasticated tubular bandage with radial and longitudinal stretch. It is manufactured from viscose with very fine elastane threads knitted into the fabric radially and longitudinally to provide light elasticity.
The Tubifast 2-Way Stretch 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.
Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is available in a range of five widths, designed to fit snugly over all limbs, no matter what the size or shape. Each size is identified by a color coded line knitted into the bandage. It’s quick and easy to use: cut to size and stretch over the dressing for an even, non-constrictive fit.
Because of its tubular construction, Tubifast 2-Way Stretch 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.
Areas of Use:
Tubifast may be used for dressing retention and skin covering for any part of the body. It can also be used for patch wrapping and as an undercast stockinette.

Many of our customers have reported excellent results using Puracyn OTC (formerly named Microcyn OTC). Puracyn OTC is an innovative new approach to wound care promoting faster healing time. It is a non-irritating, pH-balanced wound cleanser for minor cuts, burns, irritations, and superficial abrasions of the skin.
After the wound has closed, proven scar treatments such as Cica-Care, Mepiform, or Kelo-Cote will improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation.
